17. Personally I would not retire there RIGHT NOW
the violence is less far from the border, but the risk of kidnappings is way too real, even in small towns away from the "front Lines."

In fact, there are no front lines in this war, just hotter and colder zones.

As to the war on drugs, it needs to stop, not only for their sake, you are seeing the future of the US as well

MI3 is a real threat, so are the Arellanos, the Sinaloa Cartel, the Colima Cartel...

We are just in the way... to profits
