    I agree Mexico should legalize, so our problem is no longer their problem. But we should keep heroin, meth and crack illegal here and secure our borders. Securing our borders is the key. If they can't get their drugs into the US the Mexican drug problem is over. All our drugs will then be Made in the USA.
    Legalizing drugs is like giving amnesty to all the murdering thugs that caused all the problems.

    At any rate, my particular opinion is that we should legalize and regulate drugs for our own benefit, not Mexico's.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    It is a practical impossibility to secure the border. Period.

    How so?

    Well, I think dispensaries may be government run like ABC stores. I guess it depends on the state. I would love it if a coffeehouse culture developed.

    Well it is in rebuttal to your opinion, and then adding a bit of common sense and encouragement to actually use a bit of logic to evaluate your nonsense position.

    Here another tool to help you examine your opinion from the same thread, this time analogy, and I will quote myself:

    Just because someone would no longer be found guilty of drug trafficking doesn't mean they would no longer be found guilty of murder while drug trafficking.

    Yeah, but that would mean government control of a now legal industry, and we all know how conservatives feel about that.

    The Mexicans can't convict them now. Witnesses die and that would continue. They still have the muscle and the firepower.
    Secure the borders.

    I wasn't forming an opinion. I was stating a fact and the fact is that Mexico decriminalized drugs in an attempt to curb cartel violence.

    So, not only do you want to legalize drugs, you want the drug industry to be nationalized? OMG!
