Multiple federal lands in Arizona now warning against travel

Among them:

Dennis Godfrey, a spokesman for the Bureau of Land Management’s Arizona office, said roughly a dozen signs were posted earlier this month along the Sonoran Desert National Monument advising that travel in the area is not recommended due to “active drug and human” smuggling. The signs are not far from where a Pinal County deputy was shot and killed during a confrontation with marijuana smugglers in April and the fatal shooting of two men suspected to be drug smugglers.

Rather than send in large number of military, wouldn’t it be simpler to just legalize marijuana? That won’t solve the human smuggling problem per se but it will cripple the drug cartels, and I bet they’re major players in human smuggling too.
