I'm not sure if I would be down to legalize the hardest of drugs. definitely decriminalize them all though.
I don't think the cartels will be able to sustain themselves on a much smaller number of just heroin users. definitely not their current military might.
But the legalization idea has more benefits than marching in.
i have an idea. if the US becomes an ally ( just to show them) of either the Los Zetas or Sinoloa Cartel, Then the US army along with the mexican army can easily defeat the rival cartel. Finally defeat the other one. Happy ending.
Because the cartels run a majority of Mexico
what if we offer to work with Mexico?
Should you have the right to make a bad decision? Whether we like it or not pretty much any decision we make will influence your surroundings.
what about drugs that make people violent, like pcp or bath salts?
or are shown to be very harmful recreationally to both user and society, like heroin or opium?
The best way to eliminate their funding is to legalize all drugs. When you legalize something, a black market is created for it. In these black markets, the product can be sold for much more than for legally, and the customers are usually desperate.
The cartels bring drugs up to the US, and the gangs peddle them on the black market. Profits go to the cartels and fuels the fire. An example of this happened in the early 20th century. There was a prohibition on alcohol, making it illegal. After it was illegalized, alcohol was sold on the black market. That's how Al Capone rose to power.
Also, making drugs illegal infringes upon our rights to do stupid things to our body. We shouldn't be forced to make good decisions, that's immoral in of itself. People are gonna do things whether you illegalize it or not, it's just a matter of our rights.
sorry big papa
eliminating cash is another way to do it. it's not particularly popular tho.
legalization is one easy way... although it brings up other questions.
I strongly disagree that invading another nation and destroying their government to get to the cartels would benefit either America or Mexico.
I am curious though. How would you tale down their funding?
I have an answer to taking down a lot of the cartel's funding
yes, let's invade another nation with whom relations are already deteriorating. excellent idea. more body bags, more other nations building, more enforcing our will on others, more excuse for others to attack us.
