U.S Part of Drug Problem in Mexico
President Filipe Calderon of Mexico argues that the U.S. is partly to blame for the drug wars and killings in Mexico. “Calderón is clear about what he believes are the main causes of the problem. The consumption of drugs in the US and easy access to arms (which he also faults the US for) are two main reasons, along with a lack of educational and work opportunities.” News of the editorial was published by the Christian Science Monitor, June 16, but received little coverage in America where few think it is our problem. Wake up America, if we didn’t buy it, there would not be so much money to attract criminals. We need to seriously discuss making drugs legal and available to addicts in supervised clinics as is done in Holland.
