Mexican military will never beat the Cartels

Washington DC’s given Mexico $2.5 billion in Drug War aid over the last 8 years, and nothing but destruction has come of it.  The reason is this: you can’t beat a black market with guns.  Winning the Drug War in Mexico requires the simplest, cheapest solution in the world: legalize the drugs produced by the cartels.  Prohibition created a black market vacuum that was quickly filled by cartels looking to get rich from the high demand for the drugs.  Legalize it all, let anyone produce, buy, sell, these drugs, and the cartels pot of gold will vanish.  It’s tragically simple, how many thousands more will die until Mexico’s leaders admit it?  Daily Beast
