México plagued by 40 thousand murders, since declaring war on their nation’s drug dealers, is in the grip of anxiety over this violence and the
recent killing of 53 people in a casino by another drug gang attack.
Ex-Mexico President Vincent Fox declaring his frustration with the violence suggests a truce on the war on drugs or even a possible legalization of
drugs in that nation in order to stem the horrific violence such as the casino massacre.
Though it is unlikely that this will be done in Mexico because the present president has invested so much in his tactics of sending federal troops to
combat the drug gangs, and it is certain the US wouldn’t allow Mexico to do such a thing as legalize drugs for their own selfish reasons having to
do with the lucrative drugs and guns profits of US banks.
The question then involves these issues:
Would or could Mexico legalize drugs and if so will that have an impact on the violence in that nation.
And would the US prevent the Mexicans from legalizing drugs, and if so, why would they do this?
MEXICO CITY -- Former Mexican President Vicente Fox says maybe it's time to consider a truce with drug traffickers and even an amnesty for them
as a way to stop violence in Mexico.
Fox says authorities "at the highest level" should also consider legalizing drugs.
