    Here is a thought: Those in the US that want to use drugs and cause all this choas should be deported to Mexico. If you want to use drugs go to the country that provides drugs. I am tired of paying for rehab programs for people that want to stay high and not take any responsibility for their own addictions. These are blood drugs. 50k people have died and some spoiled kid or parent wants to smoke a joint take Meth or any orther illigal substance-should live in Mexico. I think you will do well with their standard of living. Don't say lets make drugs legal. Alot of Px drugs are legal. How is that problem working out? Americans wake up. I am tired of this coddle approach to those who think it is better to be high than to be responsible. Let's trade: one good Mexican citizen for a drug addict. I will take the Mexican citizen.

    I agree CWV1965, although I think the solution will involve not just economic revival in Mexico, increased border security and more deportations, but regulation of the drug market as well. Making drugs illegal is the least responsible thing my government can do to control them. We should keep public use illegal (like public drunkenness) and require that recreational drugs like marijuana be sold with other recreational drugs like tobacco and alcohol.

    I graduated from high school in Phoenix, AZ, a few years ago, and so many of my classmates smoked marijuana. They said it was so much easier to get than cigarettes or beer. You have to get a guy on the street or an older friend to go buy you beer or cigs, and hope they come back - but you can buy marijuana right away from the guy on the street, no hassle about ID.

    Prohibition is bad for America's children, regulation is the path forward.

    Makes good sense. We are occupied and being stripped of our wealth with their rights of 'spoils of war' looting and pilfering as an occupation force. We pay Mexico to occupy us the let them loot us of our wealth and riches like the defeated are always subjected to.

    The Mexican government no longer needs our DEA blackmail and financial backing, the US government is now in the drivers seat and letting Mexico LaRaza and its people take their spoils of war from their defeated American enemy.

    With border control they can now ship and distribute their drugs and death within the US borders as they move east absorbing the US as they migrate and occupy with impunity. Syria is not the enemy of peace, its Mexico and occupation forces within.
