WAR ON DRUGS BEGAN AT THE BORDER. If there were no drugs crossing the border, they would not get on the streets and to drug dealers and users. The war on drugs has failed for the same reason the war on illegal immigration has failed. We have failed to secure the border. Legalizing marijuana will not put a dent on the war on drugs because there are other drugs that are crossing and most addictions are to those drugs. Marijuana is jut a fraction of the drugs crossing the border and of use. I am aware of cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and illegal prescription drugs but there are probably others. These drugs that will make it worth drugs cartels getting them on our street and to users. Are there any village idiots out there that believe if we make marijuana more available that people will stop using other drugs? If drug cartels cannot get their drug across the border they will leave the border and they would solve Mexicos war on drugs. We got Al Qaeda out of Afghanistan but we cannot keep drugs and drugs cartel out of this country?
