If you’re using illegal drugs, you’re accessory to murder.
Regarding all of the violence associated with the drug cartels in Mexico being visited on Americans not to mention the people of Mexico, I hear folks saying, “That is terrible. Why doesn’t someone do something about it?” Then I suspect that many of these same concerned citizens go on home, kick back and light up a joint or maybe they even might lay out a line of coke or some other drug of choice.
The war on drugs will not succeed until the demand for drugs in this country is either sharply curtailed or eliminated all together, and realistically the latter will never happen.
I feel that anyone who contributes to the proliferation of drugs is as guilty of the murders of these people, and the atrocities they incur, as the cartel members who pull the trigger or wield the machete, no matter how insignificant their drug use may be. As a side note, I would add that anyone associated with the failed Fast and Furious debacle also should be held accountable as accessories in any murders resulting in this asinine endeavor.
