67. The problem with President Obama's logic

that..."the answer to the drug cartels is societies that have strong economics, rules of law, and a law enforcement infrastructure that is sound." is that we have a weak economy, chronic corruption in law enforcement institutions (DEA,CIA,ect), and our law enforcement infrastructure is set up to support the prison industry/big pharma/arms corporations--which have become cartels themselves!

The corruption INSIDE the system is the problem--and you cannot get a sane solution to a problem by asking for answers FROM people who stand to gain by the status quo. Period.

Legalization is PART of a larger social vision--which depends upon the REFORM of corruption within these institutions--so that people working there rededicate themselves to the welfare of the common good, rather than blinding allowing this country to be dragged down further into mobster rule.
