There are believed to be approximately 27 more of these houses in Mexico alone not to mention the ones in other countries who are enriching themselves in the drug trade. These people have so much money, they make the Arab oil sheiks look like welfare recipients. Their money can buy the best politicians, the best cops, the best judges, whatever they need they just throw down stacks of cash and it is theirs! This is why the drug problem is so difficult to fight.

I think Mexico has missed a trick here. What they should do is legalise all narcotics in Mexico. The violence will stop, trillions of legal dollars will flood into mexico from huge numbers of narco tourists from the states. Atleast they should build a Las Vegan type city or 10 where anything goes...this war is never ending and its causing misery upon alot of inncoent people. If people are determined to ruin their lives with coke etc then why not let them and take the profits and do something useful with the cash like put a decent infrastructure into mexico. Whatever America is paying mexico in terms of money to fight this endless war on drugs, it would be far better to end it this way for all concerned.
