Mexican drug cartel kingpin thanks U.S. presidents

Check out the video below. It shows how the “war on drugs” really has worked out: it has enriched drug lords. Drug Kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loara thanks our recent presidents, Reagan, the Bushes and Obama, for keeping drugs illegal, which keeps El Chapo in business.

Unfortunately, the “war on drugs” has led to the epidemic of gang murders in Mexico, especially since 1976 when President George W. Bush pushed Mexican President Calderon into greater attacks on the gangs.

When Portugal legalized drugs a decade ago, drug use actually dropped sharply. With the profit motive gone, drug gangs stopped pushing dope on people, especially children. The glamour of using dope was gone. And addicts, with the threat of arrest gone, more frequently got help kicking their habits.

The same thing would happen here. Instead, the U.S., state and local governments would rather push profits to El Chapo. That’s because the “war on drugs” is big money for the Yanqui police, politicians and private security firms. Gotta protect those big cop salaries and pensions. But they’re profiting from the blood of the gangs’ 30,000 dead victims.

Let’s legalize drugs, thus cutting drug use (as in Portugal), while putting El Chapo out of business.

    Calderon should legalize drugs (all forms and quantities) in his own country and tell America to shove it. That would stop the massacres in Mexico. But you would never see that happen. He speaks from both sides of his mouth. 😉 Either that or use the Mexican military to transport and traffick the dope, thus cutting the cartels out of the business. They’d go broke. Officially, Calderon is against drugs and the US public can’t be persuaded into invading. A win-win for him.

    Did you read that Calderon has called for the ban on assault weapons in the US? 😀 How has the ban on assault weapons in Mexico been working out lately? Calderon should be calling for the indictment and arrest of the AG, re: Fast and Furious. It wasn’t the ordinary american gun enthusiast who let thousands of assault weapons walk cross the border and end up in the hands of the cartels, was it Felipe? Point your finger in the right direction and keep your damn nose out of the business of the ordinary american citizen who also has an vested interest in self-protection and the protection of his family. If you owned a set of balls you would seal your side of the border and tax the hell out of anything that leaves your country. 😉
