Long as drugs are illegal, we will have this problem. People are going to buy drugs...get over it! Just because some rich politicians decided long ago which drugs were illegal and which ones were legal (like cigarettes and alcohol) doesn't necessarily make one worse than the other. Alcohol is much worse than marijuana and if you even try to argue that, you really have NO IDEA what you are talking about. This country was founded around the belief of individual freedoms. As long as I am not endangering anyone besides myself, why should you care what I put into my own body. If i want to kill myself with drugs, who are you to say I can't. No one (not the government, and definitely not you) but me should have the right to say what I can and can't put into my own body.
As long as corrupted US authorities continue to let illicit drugs widespread from US Borders to all over USA, mexico will continue having this enormous problem. Why do Americans think their Authorities are "honest" when Illicit drugs are being sold everywhere in USA? This is a supply & demand problem. Drugs come to the USA via air, shore lines and the other border too.
The capture of Valdez Villarreal is a high-impact blow against organized crime.As long as there is a huge demand for illegal drugs in this country, all that will happen is that he will be replaced by another just as cunning and ruthless as he is.As long as this is true, for every major drug 'kingpin' that is sent to jail, 5 more will be lined up behind him ready to provide a product that many people enjoy using. And guess what: it will always be true. There has never been a drug free human society and there never will be.
