    The top advisor to incoming Mexican president Peña Nieto said the world's first full legalization of marijuana in Colorado and Washington “changes the rules of the game” in the war on drugs, The Washington Post reports.

    Mexican officials have called for a review of joint U.S.-Mexico drug policies because, as Mexican Congressman Manlio Fabio Beltrones pointed out, "the largest consumer in the world has liberalized its laws.”

    If the trend continues and we find states legalizing not only pot but other drugs, it will mean the market dries up and the drug cartels begin to lose their incomes.
    What will happen south of our border? And, will the violence spill over into the USA?

    The United States will incrementally legalize all drugs.

    I hope this brings forth and honest review of the never ending it would seem and truly laughable "War on Drugs". Sometimes it feels as if the Cartels and the US government are actually on the same side.

    There has never been a war on drugs. There's been an accomodation of drugs but no war on drugs. We intend to deal with drugs like we do with illegal immigration. Cure the problem by legalizing it.

    The war on drugs could have been won decades ago by allowing users to experience the consequences of their drug use. No benefits, no medical care, no requirements of employers to keep users on the payroll. A few hundred drug users gasping out their last in gutters and alleys would do more to discourage drug use than any law.

    Oklahoma is the latest state to deny benefits to drug users.

    Using drugs must be made to be very unattractive. That will end drug use, not sending them to rehab, counseling and community service.

    A drugged society is far more complicit than one that has their wits about them. Drug users are remarkably easy to control. Control the drug, control of the person goes right along with it.

    How do you know this to be true?

    I can honestly say the legalization of drugs is NOT what made me lose faith in the GOP.

    The Democrats can offer me nothing I want so they are not even in the equation.
