    Practically evey crime has an element of illegal drug somewhere.

    I think that rescue units should let OD cases just die and not waste taxpayer money................

    Drug cartels in Mexico...
    :confused:
    Mexico's most powerful drug cartels
    Mexico declared a major victory Tuesday when it arrested the leader of the La Familia drug gang and 50 of its members, calling the group finished after the arrests. But the deadly drug war in Mexico is far from over. Many experts expect the remaining La Familia members to join allied groups and for its territory to be absorbed by other traffickers. Here’s a look at Mexico’s most powerful drug cartels:

    You're worried about the Mexican drug cartels?

    Legalize marijuana and 66% of their illegal profits are gone with the stroke of a pen.

    Don't tax it, just legalize it.

    Then we might actually focus our attention on REAL problems.

    Like for example, how to find work for all the cops, prison guards, and other functionaries of the criminal injustice system we won't need when hemp is legal..

    For once, I think you're right. PROHIBITION DOESN'T WORK! I thought America already learned that lesson with alcohol; apparently not. It didn't work then, and it doesn't work now; all prohibition does, is provide another revenue stream for organized crime. Period. I can't think of any illegal drug I would care to use, if it were legal. Doesn't matter; some people will use them, regardless, and some will supply that need, at whatever cost the market will bear, regardless. The "war on drugs" is and has been an abject, miserable failure, for decades, and it's way past time to end the charade.

    You know what, I think we finally found something we agree on.

    To think that if it where legal, society would just go nuts & do every drug they can is ridiculous!! People that are already doing it, will continue.............the only difference will be that they won't be criminals anymore. And the people that aren't doing it, aren't going to be effected one bit. Alcohol will do everything those other drugs will, yet we have liquor stores with drive up windows!!
