The Solution To Mexico's Drug Problem

Yes. There is a solution to Mexico's drug problem says a New York Post columnist.

The ultimate solution is legalization, which would lower profits and take violence out of the drug trade -- just as the end of Prohibition reduced America's gang problem. But there's no political appetite so far (on either side of the border) for legalizing drugs.

Instead, Washington muddles on with an expensive and extremely deadly conceit -- pretending that all we need to do is pour some money on the problem, and Mexico's federal government will somehow eventually prevail.
That dynamic may be about to change.
