File under: Narcos
#1 I think we have to carry out a review of our joint policies

#2 More than 47,000 people have been killed in drug-related violence in Mexico since President Felipe Calderon began a military assault on violent narco mobs in 2006. Many of the dead have included Mexican military personnel and police.
Musta pulled that "fact" out of the writer's ass. 90 percent of the dead in Mexico's drug war were narcos killed by other narcos.
#6 More potential democratic voters for the donks to harvest. Legally stoned ones at that. I can picture a stoned voter dealing with complex amendment issues on the ballot. Eenie, meanie, minie, moe, I'll select the one that's easiest to read or the one that just feels good. Or maybe they are provided with a cheat sheet of which alternatives or candidates to which to vote for free Maui Wowee or Acupalco Gold. Ah, what have we come to in this country? Just a rhetorical question.

#7 These Mexican officials' understanding of the problem is exactly backwards. They don't have massive violence, because they are succeeding at controlling growing and trafficking in pot. They have massive violence, because the the U.S. growers of pot are stealing their business in CA,CO, and now WA.
Last year on vacation I passed a number of rural greenhouses growing the stuff for "medical" use.
These poor Mexican drug dealers' customers are buying less and less and less; so, they have to downsize their business. And they are downsizing in the way they understand best, by shooting the opposition.
At the rate we are going, soon all those small business people will all be dead or out of business, and California will be exporting corporately grown weed to them.

#8 I suspect the narco-violence is more over turf than reefer. A shoe box of pretty much anything is worth a lot more than a shoe box full of pot.
