^^^ But consider. Mexico is going to legalize drugs. What will happen to the price of drugs in the USA then? Seriously.

Cool

Probably nothing. Even in markets where drugs (like marijuana) are legal, there is still an illegal market present due to it being cheaper then the illegal market. Look to Colorado to see this.

So we're still going to be importing drugs from Mexico -- could be both the legal markets and the illegal markets, though this is dependent on the taxes on where. But the flow of drugs isn't going to stop from Mexico.

Re: Best way to combat the cartels: Legalization of Drugs

Some may have points but I disagree on these. Legalization of Drugs  leads to proliferation of it to some extent and ruining more lives even those who are not user. Also it depends on what kind of drugs. I am in favor of medical marijuana but not on meth,cocaine and other abused substance. Making them legal and freely accessed by anyone,  does not solve the problem.

Well yes, I don't think that people should be able to use hard drugs. I probably should've been more specific when I use the term drugs, as that leaves a lot of possibilities open.

When I'm talking about drugs I'm mostly referring to Marijuana.

But I also think that there should be locations for people to use hard drugs safely -- not giving out the drugs, but at least the needles and so on and so forth. To attempt to save them from overdosing or something along those lines. It's much cheaper to have a needle dispensary rather then sending the ambulance and things along those lines to attempt to save them from them using too much.

There's a lot we can do, but at the end of the day people profiting runs in the way.

hmmm Locations for  people to use drugs safely? Something like a drug den complete with amenities?  A legal drug den Grin

Seriously, this is a worldwide problem. Substance abused should not be easily accessed.Once a person is addicted its hard to convince him  to stop. Drug dealers are laughing with their profit and very happy whenever there is a new user since this is a target market. Once hook, its a loyal client.I pity those lives who goes in vain because of this unscrupulous people.

Just to give an insight about the drugs in general, I would like to share some information about the War on Drugs in the Philippines and why it cannot be extinguished.

Before President Duterte became president, his main advocacy was to eliminate the proliferation of drug usage by combatting drug users in a span of 6 months. This has been the whole agenda of his campaign with his famous tagline: Change is coming!, and people believed that he will fulfill his promise. It has been 3 years since then but the drug-war continues to dominate on the streets with extrajudicial killings done to most people living in the poverty lane.

Lately, he admitted that the drug problem cannot be fulfilled in his term but in fact, actually worsen when he steps down. Now, what would be the right approach to this kind of situation? Legalize drug-use specifically Marijuana or go hand-in-hand with cartels in a bloodbath situation?

No one really knows what would be the right approach but the fact that the government has been continuing with their operations and nothing has happened this past years say something about the whole situation.

What I would like to see is total freedom to use drugs if a person doesn't make trouble for anyone else by his usage, but...

There should be massive advertising by government and others into the dangers of drug us. Safety limits should be advertised so that people know where to stop; for example, safety is 1 joint a day, max.

If people run into trouble, but not serious enough trouble that they hurt anyone, it should be the duty of their family and friends to pull them back to the safe limits.

If harm or damage is done by a person under the influence, the full effect of laws should come down on him with little or no mercy. Why? Because he had loads of advertising warning him, and he had friends and family to help him out.

I feel this way because of my desire for freedom for all of us, but protection for all of us. The government with its laws is trying to be nanny over us all. But it can't, and that is why the drug war has become more damaging than drug usage. Nanny attempts are opening up chances for narc agents to abuse their office and powers way more than any drugs could damage us.

Cool

^^^ You are essentially talking about fixing sin in the whole world. The only way to do this is to get people to willingly fill up on Bible Christianity. It ain't going to happen.

I mean all of this can be explained rather quickly. Duterte is a politican, and wants more time in office to pad his own pockets and to maybe show SOME change regarding the war on drugs. That's how this whole political thing works, and even if it sucks thats still the case.

This isn't a place where drugs are sold, its a place where you can go when you're going to be using your drugs either way and you'd like to have medical professionals on staff in the event that you do overdose.

It would be better to fix the problems that cause people to turn to the abuse of drugs, tobacco and alcohol.

But that's something that you can do in conjunction to making sure people are safe while using certain drugs.

Drugs like marijuana should be legalized and regulated. I'd much rather have the government collect tax revenue and regulate marijuana properly rather then people having to go into the world of drug dealing which COULD turn violent.

Plus the fact that we dont want people to die simply because they have an addiction.

In conjunction with all of these things happening we should continue to teach about the dangers of drug use in schools. That's the best way to stop the next generation from using drugs as well. Teaching them healthy ways to cope with issues, and so on and so forth.

But this isn't going to happen on the federal level in the US mostly because of business and other interests from the people listed below:

Police Unions
Correctional Officer Unions
For Profit Prisons AND REGULAR PRISONS
Big Pharma
Defense Lawyers
and so on.
- big pharma can actually make more money supplying a 'newly available drug

but your right about the for profit prisons and defense lawyers. locking up someone for drugs is far cheaper to investigate, arrest and convict than say a murder investigation is

Except of course if a drug like marijuana that can be grown easily and freely by everyone suddenly makes the billions of dollars of research expended on creating hundreds of types of different drugs irrelevant because it works much better, more safely, and less expensive than their options...

It's not about something cheaper. It's the fact that when you're arresting people and putting them in prison for non violent drug related crimes, you're going to end up with a large amount of people who are in jail -- and there is a vestered interest in keeping them in jail for certain prisons.

For profit prisons make money per inmate, so they obviously want more people in prison.
Correctional officer unions have more members (more employees at correctional facilities) if more people are in prison, so they dont want there to be less crimes on the books.
Police unions - same reason as above for correctional unions.
Defense Lawyers - Same sort of thing as above, but less cases if there are less crimes on the books.

Etc.
