Legalizing substances would hinder cartels

Mexico is being dominated by various drug cartels capable of carrying out their sinister agendas in hundreds of cities across the United States.
The citizens of that country have been subjected to years of violence, corrupt governments and a deteriorating education system.
Illegal drugs are being distributed by cartels in the United States, such as marijuana and methamphetamine. These are imported illegally by the largest cartels, Los Zetas and the Sinaloa Cartel.
The legalization of these drugs would be a severe blow to the most dangerous and prolific criminal organization the western hemisphere has ever seen.
American citizens can help by voting to legalize these drugs.
The Mexican government has dissolved into nothing more than a puppet, fighting a “war on drugs” that it cannot win.
The current status of Mexico as a nation is worse than it was during the Mexican War of Independence.
Los Zetas, the dominant cartel smuggling drugs, weapons and people into the U.S., has taken control of Mexico in only a little more than a decade.
Los Zetas was created by the Gulf Cartel to act as its enforcers. Thirty-one ex-special-forces soldiers with training comparable to that of U.S.Marines, became the Gulf Cartel’s most feared weapon.
These ex- military cartel soldiers are tactically trained as remorseless killing machines.
The escalating drug war between the Sinaloa Cartel and Los Zetas will continue to instill terror into the lives of those who experience the “drug war” first hand. United States citizens need to realize that Los Zetas poses a more realistic threat to National Security than Al- Qaeda.
Even the recent arrests of Los Zetas leader Miguel Trevino Morales (Z-40) and Alberto Carrillo Fuentes, also known as, “Ugly Betty,” head of the New Juarez Cartel, by the Mexican Navy means nothing.
The citizens of these turbulent border cities bear witness to the thousands of deaths carried out mercilessly by cartels, mainly in northern Mexico.
Since 2004, Los Zetas has been at war with the Sinaloa Cartel and its leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman for the control of drug and human trafficking along the border.
The area in between Sinaloa, the northwestern Mexican coast, and Los Zetas, the eastern coast, cartels remains disputed. This corridor is the center of most violence in the country, which would allow direct access into the United States interstate highway system.
Victims turning to Mexican President Pena Nieto are told that there is nothing that can be done. Usually the authorities are conspiring with Los Zetas, as well as other major cartels such as Sinaloa and New Juarez.
The current president, a member of the Institutional Revolutionary Party, has been accused of corruption and ignoring election budgets by sending prepaid cards to citizens in order to gain votes.
Drug legalization would force Mexican cartels to undergo radical change and would not send the U.S. into a drug-fueled frenzy as many believe.
