In a way, this wouldn't be at all surprising and, would actually almost be a sensible thing to do.... The reality is that drugs WILL come into America
no matter what happens. Recruiting the top cartel seems like a good way of regulating the amount of drugs available (without actually legalising them)
and reducing the number of players in the game, thus making it a more stable and controllable market... If you're bringing the drugs in in partnership
you reduce the conflict involved in policing it which in turn reduces the amount of money involved in fighting an impossible war. You can control the
amount of drugs coming in, reduce the instability within the mexican communities and American communities involved, know exactly who you're dealing
with, what they're armed with, what they're up to and where they are and you're in a much stronger position to dictate terms. Meanwhile the cartels
make money, get to move their product more easily and, ultimately, gain a monopoly on the market. It's win/win for the cartel and the
Govt ... Whether people like it or not the drug trade is not only unstoppable it's also a major business like any other legitimate business (just with
an illegal product and more violence obviously) and, as such, the government will want to regulate it as best they can. The only ways to do this are;
legalisation (never going to happen) or illegal deals with cartels... Backing one group is better than fighting fifty from a govt point of view......
