sounds like a pawn to me !!
Exactly. My first thought was "uh-oh, he must've fallen out of favor with the corrupt Mexican government".

It's sad when you have good news like that, and you know that something like that happened. It was either that or the U.S. was PO'd at the lack of result from the Mexican security forces so they gave up a meaningless troll. Great job guys. :thumb:

as long as people in the US keep buying drugs it doesn't matter how many "drug lords" you kill. Talk about pouring money down the drain.

And who says the war on drugs isn't working? You deal in drugs , you get dead.
I say it's not working. I hate to agree with FXJohn about anything, but he's right. It's pouring money that we need down a bottomless hole. How long has this "war" been going on? What sort of headway have we made? Has there been any progress? Oh yeah, a drug lord was killed. How many drug lords have been killed over the years?

People will do what they want to do no matter what. Doesn't matter if there are an obscene amount of law against the act, people will still do it.

Really? well for one thing, that drug lord was killed by Mexico, so it's pesos down the drain.....now, they spend 10K Pesos to kill him and find 10million at his mansion........hmmm, sound like a profit to me.

It only takes one time to get hooked on meth and a lot comes from Mexico. The sad part about it is the big pharmacutical companies still make the main ingredient sold to foreign companies. About 70% of the crime around here is meth related; break ins, robbery, murder,etc. Our local sheriff said he would rather see people use pot instead of meth because of the devastating effects of it. He has a rescue mission for the kids that are taken from the homes where this crap is made. So far he and his wife has been foster parents to over 40 kids.

Most meth users are addicted after their first try. He did bring this up about pot users progressing to meth but he would rather them stay on pot because they are more predictable in their actions. Meth users are always tweeking as he says.

I don't think you understood. If it were legalized people wouldnt be buying from drug lords. Thus, no more money for them. Problem solved.
So we would be buying drugs from a corporation that would inflate the costs and the government would tax the hell out of it, right. Same devil in my opinion.
