Unfortunately the drogas, the cartels and the killings are your problem when inside U.S. territory.


If they are inside the US then yes. My answer to Mexico is to just close the damn border completely.

Of course, we could always end the failed drug war and really help Mexico out, along with the world at large, but that would force politicians to admit they were wrong and shrink bureaucratic empires, so it's never going to happen.


I agree that ending the War on Drugs would help the problem immensely. Have you missed that 1/3 of states have legalized medical marijuana? The conversation about drugs is changing rapidly.
