Why Mexico Can’t Have its Joint and Smoke it, Too

In What’s Spanish for Quagmire, Jorge Castañeda explores and punctures the five myths surrounding Mexico’s (and your) war on drugs.

    It was an excellent article. Besides a waste of American tax dollars for yet another quagmire, the DEA and all associated agencies working under any American umbrella is so large now, it’s beginning to be more like a giant welfare program. I mean what do we do with the thousands who work for these agencies? That, to me, is something the administration is probably considering. The people who write the “grants” for these agencies; call it budgets or whatever, always strive to keep the damn thing alive so they can keep their worthless jobs.
