"Police say the men were members of the Sinaloa cartel, a violent gang entrenched in a brutal turf war for control of drug routes to the United States.

The men are accused of 45 different executions in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico's most violent city. They were arrested by law enforcement agents during a routine street patrol, according to a statement released Friday by federal police."

'On Sept. 2, gunmen lined patients against a wall at a rehabilitation center in Ciudad Juarez and then riddled them with bullets, killing 18.'

Does anyone remember the 'Saint Valentines Day Massacre', and the reason for that violence?
The repeal of prohibition finally put an end to that violence. Those that forget the past, are condemned to repeat it.

Anyone thinking the violence will ever end as long as Prohibition continues, is deluding themselves.
Who in their right mind thinks that we have control of drugs? It won't be until the profit motive is taken away that we will have control. Prohibition creates the profits.

Obviously, Dee, you haven't researched this issue. After you have learned what LEAP's position is, then we can discuss this. The war on drugs is a dismal failure. The facts speak for themselves.
America has 5% of the world's population , and 25 % of the world's prison population. Do you think that is because Americans are the most evil people on the planet? Or, maybe we're doing something wrong with our criminal justice system. Which is it?

Dee, how do you profit from prohibition?

Anyone that thinks what we've been doing for 40 years, since Nixon declared this war, is doing anything to make drugs go away, are sadly deluding themselves. The real sad part is that drugs are easier for our children to get than beer. Prohibition makes that a fact.

After nearly four decades of fueling the U.S. policy of a war on drugs with over a trillion tax dollars and 37 million arrests for nonviolent drug offenses, our confined population has quadrupled making building prisons the fastest growing industry in the United States. More than 2.2 million of our citizens are currently incarcerated and every year we arrest an additional 1.9 million more guaranteeing those prisons will be bursting at their seams. Every year we choose to continue this war will cost U.S. taxpayers another 69 billion dollars. Despite all the lives we have destroyed and all the money so ill spent, today illicit drugs are cheaper, more potent, and far easier to get than they were 35 years ago at the beginning of the war on drugs. Meanwhile, people continue dying in our streets while drug barons and terrorists continue to grow richer than ever before. We would suggest that this scenario must be the very definition of a failed public policy. This madness must cease!

Drug prohibition is the worst public policy since slavery.

Not so obvious MJ..but rather just your own assumption..
I have indeed researched LEAP..and did so long..long before your link here..There is not much to discuss that would be any different from what I stated above..It is not the answer..

What their stance not is just an opinion..and one which is favoring their own agenda..

As for the prison population..there is much wrong in America's justice doubt about it..

Yes the US has the highest prison population..but when you compare that to others places..where most are usually shot/killed in most cases on site..well then out percentage is not so bad..Unless of course you think those barbaric ways are better than ours..

Has the war on drugs failed..Absolutely..however that doesn't mean legalizing it will make the problems go away..

"If hard drugs such as heroin or cocaine were legalized would you be likely to use them?

99% SAY "NO"

That is actully laughable..To suggest that those who are current addicted to these drugs..would "not use" if it were legal..That is just an ignorant statement..

What are they suggesting..that all addictions are just going to stop at that moment...That is absurd..

Again..these are criminals..those who kill for control and it doesn't really matter what they are controlling..if not one thing it will be another..But whether drugs are legalized or not..These scuzz have to be stopped..

'..where most are usually shot/killed in most cases on site..well then out percentage is not so bad..Unless of course you think those barbaric ways are better than ours..'

Western Europe, Netherlands, Austrailia. Someone should expose these barbarians. Your arguement is foolish

Dee, you obviously profit in some way from the 'war on drugs'. Part of that vast prison industrial complex that fights so hard to keep the status quo.

If we were able to instantaneously jail all people now selling illegal drugs, how long would it be before an equal number of new dealers would be in business?

Some State and Federal laws are considered drug exceptions to the Bill Of Rights. Which do you think is more important, drug prohibition or the Bill of Rights?

Noam Chomsky suggested that blaming drug-related violence on the influence of drugs was like saying Al Capone ordered the Valentines Day Massacre because he was drunk. How do you respond?

When you say legalize, are you thinking of legalize like morphine, like whiskey, or like aspirin, and what do you think reformers mean when they use the term?

The American economy is built on a theory that profit motives control enterprise, regardless of government actions. Prohibition theory holds that harsh punishments will cause people to abandon highly profitable activities and be content with low incomes. These are mutually exclusive theories. One may be true and the other false, or both may be false, but it is impossible that both are true. Where do you think the error lies, prohibition theory, free enterprise economic theory, or both of them?

If hard drugs were available with no restrictions at all, I personally would not take them, even if they were free, and I doubt that you would either. It is widely assumed that usage would jump if drugs were legalized, and sold under a closely regulated distribution system. It is not clear where these new users would come from, when anyone who wants drugs now can easily get them. Assuming that you would not become a new user, do you agree there would be a proliferation of new users?

If you agree, would the new users be people whose intelligence is less than yours, or people whose moral fabric is weaker than yours, and how do you know?
If you disagree, what evidence do you offer?

'Again..these are criminals..those who kill for control and it doesn't really matter what they are controlling..if not one thing it will be another..But whether drugs are legalized or not..These scuzz have to be stopped.'

For everyone that's stopped, a dozen more are ready to take their place. They will be stopped, but only when Prohibition is stopped. Explain what these other criminal enterprises would be that they would be controlling. What crimes offer the same returns as drug trafficking?

Strict regulation and control, comprehensive treatment, and honest education from the cradle to adulthood. These are the policies that must replace failed enforcement and incarceration. Drug abuse is a health problem, not a criminal justice problem. Of course the drug warriors and prison builders would have you believe otherwise.

Dee says : 'What their stance not is just an opinion..and one which is favoring their own agenda.'.

And what is that agenda, Dee, to save lives? To save taxpayers billions and billions of dollars in taxes year after year. Please, Dee, tell me what you see as LEAP's 'agenda'.
