Former Mexico president proposes truce with drug cartels

Given the levels of extreme violence that Mexico is experiencing, former President Vicente Fox proposes the creation of a liaison group of international experts to mediate a truce with organized crime, and the creation of an amnesty law.

He seems to genuinely want peace and a return to sanity, along with legalization of drugs, but how would a truce work? The cartels don’t want drugs legalized (nor does the US) and amnesty could make one or more cartels, with their billions, serious political and economic powers within the country.

But really, the solution is to legalize drugs, all of them. Then prosecute the cartels for past crimes.
