All this horror being funded by America’s drug habit. Legalize the drugs already and end this narco turf wars fought by lunatics against society.

Those two sentences contradict each other. "America's drug habit" is a phrase used by deniers of reality. The reality is that there has always been drug use in every society. I think it would be more accurate to say prohibition enables the cartels to control the drug market, and one of their tools is the horrific violence in Mexico. Then your second sentence makes sense.

Yes, but the USA's sweet tooth for it and the underground economy that has grown to feed that is the problem. These people are not murdering for Canadian dollars.

re: #2 Destro

Yeah, but you're kind of confused-- it doesn't matter that the US has a 'sweet tooth' for it. What matters is legalizing-- or at least decriminalizing-- them to shut down the underground economy.

As usual, your focus on 'fuck America' just comes off as weird.

The sweet tooth in the US is the same as it is everywhere else. It's human. We can afford more than many others can.

The underground economy in the US is costing the government millions in potential tax revenue. The underground economy in Mexico is costing the people tens of thousands of lives and making the criminals, including the government, rich. And they're feeding sweet teeth worldwide, not just in the US.
