Sure Mr. Obama, blame the American people's addiction to drugs for Mexico's problems. Isn't it your CIA that is responsible for the opium growth in Afghanistan? Under Taliban rule, opium output in Afghanistan was near zero compared to what it is today. And why grow and sell drugs? To finance all the wars and violence you are spreading around the world. Hmmm sounds like the pot calling the kettle black. Obama Talks the talk, very eloquently, but fails in walking the walk.

Mr. President, talk to your own State Department. They have been issuing travel warnings to US Citizens wanting to visit parts of Mexico.

Obama gave a speech in England on how arrogant we are. Now the people of Mexico live in the shadows blaming our country.

May our Obama supporting friends get what they voted for.

Viva Mexico, Viva Costa Rica and oh.. yes... VIVA LEGAL IMMIGRATION. Certainly Mexico and Costa Rica support (demand) Legal Immigration into their countries.

As JimInSLC pointed out, drugs are a major reason we have problems with these countries that provide for the American, and world, demand to get high. With legalized drugs the demand will increase even more in the U.S. The drug cartels do not want legal and regulated drugs in America because it will take away their profitable business. So they will keep supplying the illegal kind in spite of whatever legalized kind there are out there. No solution to this problem, other than suggesting that people just "Say No". As long as human beings are so weak that they need to escape reality with feel good drugs, we will always have a drug problem.
