Nearly 10 years later they're trying to perfect that skill in a place meatheads refer to as " duh sandbox".No luck yet.
They did,however, learn to keep the borers off the opium poppy stems.
should go in and wipe out the cartels
no logistical problems- across theborder
The drug cartels could be hurt by legalization. Prohibition is their best friend.
Mexico claims that the problem is that they are next to the largest drug consuming nation in the world.
Or simply eliminate their product lines by legalizing, regulating and taxing the drugs they sell. Take the savings from dismantling the DEA to plow into rehab programs and awareness and advertising campaigns highlighting the dangers of drugs. Let those who choose to continue to use drugs, anyway, do so; who are they hurting other than themselves? I see no reason to add the US military to the drug war infrastructure already in place.
Never going to happen.
There is a stigma against drugs unlike booze during Prohibition.
Perhaps the alcoholic beverage companies are behind much of the propaganda.
The cure would be much worse then the disease. Much worse.
Thats what Teddy Roosevelt would have done.
