    As I'm going there in January to take care of family business, what goes on there concerns me a great deal. Therefore, I found this piece most interesting.
    And this doesn't even touch the huge amounts spent by Americans on the drugs being smuggled in from there!

    Mexico has a 2 pronged problem stemming from it's neighbor. America is one of the biggest suppliers of small arms to Mexico and one of the biggest consumers of drugs.

    And this government really hasn't tackled either problem in a serious or effective manner. That doesn't seem like it's going to change.

    Never took them seriously before. No reason to now.
