This is obviously the easiest and quickest solution as America could begin growing and supplying the world, rather than the USA needing imported narcotics.

Interestingly enough, the President of Mexico claims the recent legalization of recreational marijuana in Colorado and Washington is "bad for Mexico." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/1...n_2140116.html

I might've missed something, but where in the article did the Calderon say recent CO and WA legalization is bad for Mexico?

EDIT: Although I did read in another article that he thinks this means the US has lost status as a moral authority on drug prohibition--although this statement can be taken in either direction.

Some people are estimating that even just a few states legalizing could severely reduce the power of some of the Mexican drug cartels. Very interesting to see where things actually go for this.

Here's a very very interesting read on the drug cartels of Mexico: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/17/ma...pagewanted=all

A bit longer, but very fascinating. I definitely recommend that anyone check it out.
