Hillary Clinton: U.S. to blame for much of Mexico violence

Marijuana is the most smuggled drug

Finally, a cabinet member is stating the obvious truth.

An “insatiable” appetite in the United States for illegal drugs is to blame for much of the violence ripping through Mexico, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday.

Legalization, as someone said, is the least bad choice to make here, and would certainly stop the drug cartels and the violence.

“Our insatiable demand for illegal drugs fuels the drug trade. Our inability to prevent weapons from being illegally smuggled across the border to arm these criminals causes the death of police officers, soldiers and civilians.”

How are the guns getting there? Who is buying them here and how are they being smuggled across the border? The possibilities for massive corruption is obvious.


  1. Funny, everyone I know who smokes the weed grows it, and some mighty damned fine stuff at that, in their own backyards. Who is this insatiable appetite?

    • Don’t you live in the vicinity of Northern Cali/Humboldt? I don’t know if your area is the best example…

  2. I lived in LA for 25 years. Until 1985, I was part of the insatiable demand. Yeah, our pot came mostly from Northern California. But our heroin came from Mexico (“black tar”) and our cocaine was from further south. In the circles in which I traveled (or more often passed out), “mafia” meant “Mexican mafia.” There weren’t many Italians in that business.
