Drug-War Blindness Among Drug-War Proponents

“Yesterday, I wrote about two American tourists who were kidnapped and killed by a drug cartel in Matamoros, Mexico. I pointed out that if it hadn’t been for the drug war, those two people would be alive today. That’s because drug prohibition gives rise to violent drug cartels. No drug war would mean no drug cartels, which would mean no drug-war killings. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, drug-war proponents just don’t get it. In response to the killings in Matamoros, Republican members of Congress are calling for another extreme crackdown in the war on drugs.” (03/09/23)
