    @Rifleman: If the stuff was legal Americans could be producing and selling it... and the government would be getting tax dollars from it. The cartels would be out of business.

    But instead we criminalized it and a trillion dollar industry of not only drugs... but guns and people as well.

    Did we learn nothing from Prohibition? We outlawed alcohol and the mob enjoyed some of its most profitable years.

    Let us please start billing Mexico for all costs related to illegal immigrants and their illegal activities in our state and country.

    "Our jails are full to overflowing with people in on drug charges"

    Not everyone hooked on drugs goes to jail as evidenced by Whitney Houston's sad ending. Perhaps we should just give up and give the Mexican drug cartels free rein to sell their deadly products ..... at reduced rates.

    It doesn't matter. This war on drugs cannot be won. For every shipment that is intercepted another ten get through. For every operation that is shut down another five carry on unnoticed. Our jails are full to overflowing with people in on drug charges, yet drugs are still readily available on the streets. We spend millions of man-hours and billions of dollars combating drugs, and what do we have to show for it? More drugs.
