    It’s true about mexico. Not long before the cartels take over entirely. Canada, California, Washington, and Colorado multiplied the immense quantities of money flowing to the cartels when each legalized. Deaths at cartel hands went from over 100,000 a year to God only knows how many now. First Canada, then California, then the other two, started heaping money on Mexican cartels.
    .
    The stuff used to be mostly grown in Oregon illegally for western Canada (they multiplied addicts by about 10X when they legalized, with similar increases in crime and other hard drugs along with increases in price from the explosion in demand), but then Washington became a drug state and the cartels had a bonanza. Had our first two billion dollar busts in Oregon in the last 3 years. Both cartel-owned and each with more than a million plants.
    .
    Figure that one cartel, instead of just “owning” the local government in Mexico, will at some point figure they will become the government. They will take over their state, other cartels will do the same to “compete”, and pretty quick Mexico will be five or six warring states, all paid for by drug money.

    Priorities and formalities. A civilization that does not have them can not remain civil for long. SIRE.

    You present a clear cut logical picture but one that has little to do with the reality on the ground. The dollars that fund the cartel violence come primarily from the retransport of cocaine. Full legalization of marijuana, if it were politically possible, would have little effect on the Mexican drug wars since it has been primarily a domestic product in the US for a couple decades. If you were to look at the recent history of turf wars over drug profits in the US and Mexico you would see a spike in activity that followed the implementation of the War on Drugs. The full scale violence in Mexico, however, did not really happen until the PAN threatened to replace the PRI and fully cooperate with US suppression efforts. Personally, I believe that the War on Drugs has served more as a federal subsidy for the Mafia than as a true effort at suppression of drugs, but that’s another rant…

    Well said. Now, if only there were some sort of historic analogy to the dynamic between prohibition and the black market (Santayana, who?). That would illustrate how it is the economic normalization of illegal substances that promotes crime, rather than the legalization and regulation of said substances.

    One troll talking to himself under multiple accounts. A troll is like a zombie. Maybe he’s trying to show he’s like Lazarus – a zombie pit bull.
