Yes and then the country will be like Colorado, weed smoking pot headed zombies walking incoherently around

I think you get your information from outmoded and archaic sources like "Reefer Madness". Recreational users include doctors, journalists, politicians, dentists, teachers, architects etc etc. But it's not just the so-called "respectable" professions. People from all walks of life use drugs. Of course, it's when it becomes all consuming, like alcohol or any other addiction - that's a danger. But most recreational users aren't like that. And they certainly wouldn't be doing it at work.

Certainly far more coherent and focused people, than the occupant of the WH, who relies on (allegedly) adderall and sudafed.

Only way is the Dutertes way.

Said no rational adult ever.

Doesn’t excuse for one minute the crime they commit and the murders they’re accused of.

Good thing I wasn't saying it does. Good thing it's not a logical inference from my post that that is what I was saying.

Even though El Chapo is in prison, the Sinaloa cartel has not lost power. This cartel isn't the same as the cartels of old. This cartel is a unification of all the cartels so it's harder to beat.

The American government needs to step up and ban guns to Mexico. Drugs one way, guns the other.

Gun homicide rates

America 4.64 per 100,000 people.

Mexico 6.34 (2015) per 100,000 people.

UK 0.23 per 100,000 people.

Japan 0.06 per 100,000 people.

Implying can be seen as the same

Excusing this crime wasn't an implication of my post.

As was I. Doesn’t absolve the fact that what the reason, these men are perpetrators of these alleged crimes.

Good thing absolving these criminals wasn't an implication of my post or a logical inference from it.

People across the political divide use cannabis and marijuana.

So sad situation!

Like it or not, but this is just triggered by USA drug demand.

Nobody is forcing the Great American guys to consume drugs!

Legalise it maybe?

Kind of a failed state, at least on the drugs war front.  another strong argument for stopping the War on Drugs and starting a more sensible approach.

The vast majority of firearms used in Mexico originate in the US, just as a vast majority of drugs manufactured in Mexico are consumed in the US.

Supply and demand.

Cut out the cartels and middlemen by legalizing drugs. It's really that simple.

But it was an excuse nonetheless.

At no point did I expressly or implicitly excuse this crime.

This is absolutely incorrect.

Are there no satellites to track that convoy of distinctive vehicles?

Cocaine has been dogging America for decades because our government allows it. Ever seen 'Miami Vice'?

Hope they get this guy by any means necessary.

I do too but he's nothing compared to the political kingpins he answers to, and some of them are in the US government.

Then at the same time we don’t need to give make excuses for and where the guns come from when Mexico and cartels like the Sinaloa Cartel that continue to terrorize the region and the US.
