Once we legalize drugs criminals will no longer dominate illegal drug markets. Keeping drugs illegal drives them underground and into the black market. Once they are driven there no form of legal control and regulation can take place and the drug dealer then has the power to determine purity levels and their street values. Drug dealers are free to add any dangerous additives, cutting agents, and impurities they want in order to expand and make their drugs more addicting and profitable. That's why according to the CDC, overdose deaths occur 8 times more today than they did before the start of the drug war (1970).

That's right our greatly revered ''war on drugs'' has increased the number of people that die from drug use because total prohibition of drugs does not allow any legal distribution or regulation of drugs. Prohibition asks that you trust drug dealers to not sell impure drugs to kids without asking for identification. Prohibition asks that you trust drug dealers to not approach school children and offer them drugs to sell and not to entice them with the prospect of easy money. The illegal black market allows drug dealers to make 80 to 90 percent profit margins off something that is so easy to grow and replace. The 40 billion dollars they make in profits annually is what allows them to finance violence, corruption, and maintain their impunity. If drug dealers stand to make those kinds of profits then don’t you think they will do everything in their power to market and increase the availability of these drugs? Of course they will. That’s why our ignorant friends at the DEA say that drug cartels are present in virtually every U.S city and county when they weren’t beforehand. The inflated and exaggerated profits that come from prohibition is what drives the drug dealers to offer drugs indiscriminately to anyone who comes their way. That’s why in order to stop the violence we must legalize drugs so that the drug dealer’s illegal monopoly is destroyed and their can be profits removed.

As far as we're concerned those of you who support drug prohibition are responsible for these types of tragedies because drug prohibition makes cartels rich and does nothing but increase drug overdose deaths. End the drug war if you are against the violence and the drug use.

This guy in the video is held at gunpoint by about a half a dozen well armed men. At that point if the "interviewers" were to ask him to say that he was gay or bi-sexual he would definately answer yes. Everyone who believes in a forced confession video expecially on You Tube is as dumb as a mule and twice as ugly.

Get over your ignorant idea. Legalization will never occur. Not even in California! You must be one who wants drugs to be legal so you can continue using them. Get some will power or grow some ba!!s.

End war on drugs? Ok, but we must immediately start war on stupid. List all your stupid statistics, but the fact remains that no one wants drugs in kids hands.

So we wave our magical wand and legalized drugs, now all our problems go away. Wow that was easy. How come no one else thought of this before! You have to be a moron to believe legalization of d-r-u-g-s is the way to go. Instead of looking up stats, look up definitions of drugs. You might get an education on why we are not going to legalize drugs.

If Juan Pablo Ledesma and Juan Pablo Guijarro Fragoza are both dead, why have the Mexican authorities still not investigated this claim?

Same guy and he is not dead. In fact he has been seen lately and has a very bad limp.He constantly sends messages that he wants no part of this anymore and there fore he connected that message that he is dead. He wants to be left alone and is hiding for his life.

In an article from Wikipedia about the drug gang La Linea, there is a claim related to a news article from La Prensa stating that Juan Pablo Guijarro Fragosa was arrested on January 3, 2010. Is this true at all?
