^We could help the situation by cutting off the supply of a lot of money to the drug traffickers. The ‘War on Drugs’ hasn’t helped in decades, so we need to try a different approach.
Take the money away from the traffickers, and you reduce their power. The situation in central America could then get better, and people wouldn’t be so desperate to come to America.
The solution might be to legalize drugs. Make them subject to taxes, FDA oversight (purity and standard dose size), and customers get access to medical advice and services on-site, paid for by the revenue.
Personally, I don’t use aspirin if I can avoid it. Apparently, however, there are people so desperate for some kind of relief or for some illicit thrill that they’ll use all sorts of stuff, despite all the warnings. We should recognize that the two problems are interlinked, and try a different approach.
