Legalize and regulate. I don't know why this is such a hard concept to embrace. Cocaine, Opium, MJ... the suppliers of these make this situation violent. I hope I see this change before I die.

While this issue is not hard to understand, these cowardice politicians are to scared to lose their jobs to embrace it. Its a shame that over 16,000 of our neighbors have been killed in the last three years because of our ridiculous drug laws.

Sec Clinton: Just keep those drug cartel funds heading into their CIA accounts and everything will be fine!

EXACTLY....the Clintons have a long history with drug running from their Arkansas days. But Bill is too busy running his Haiti scam right now with their business cohort Shrub.

I don’t envy Obama, or Clinton. They must be aware of the complete futility of the War on Drugs. No, not futile- absurdly destructive.
If we decriminalize drugs it would knock out these drug lords and gangs.
But I cannot imagine the hue and cry from the right if Obama were to initiate yet another sensible proposal.

Actually decriminalization would not knock out the drug lords and gangs. The only reason these organizations exist is because of the black market. Decriminalization does nothing to address the black market. While it would be a good step forward, it does not go far enough. In order to end this violence we must legalize, not decriminalize, all drugs. That is the only way to end the violent black market.

Until it's legal for everyone, the BS will never stop.

Just legalize all drugs.. take out the profit motive. Let the government control the drug traffic.. they want to control everything else.

Yeah rigth, let's see if the people making money on illegal drugs in the US want drugs legalized. If they legalize drugs, production and distribution will be gobbled up by big corporations and it will kill the market for all the thousands of people profitting from this.

Fortunes were created during the prohibition - the Kennedy fortune among some - once booze was made legal again, the monies moved to the big corporations.

I think legalizing drugs is a long shot, too many interests at stake.

This is the face, and mouth, that we want to represent the United States in the world - a whiney, nagging, bitter, incompetent harridan with as much charm as a cobra? Really? She will certainly change our image in the world - from one carrying a sign saying "Don't Tread on Me" to a sign taped on our back saying "Kick Me". Now, that's change we shouldn't believe in!

All beating around the bush aside, what do you really think of Clinton?

Give it up A6. It is you who is doing the whining because Obama won the election. Clinton will change the perception of the US from international bully to partner. It is always understood that our military can make us the Sr. partner when required

WOW I can see you would be a better candidate than Clinton for the job, please tell us about your credentials.

So why aren't the city councilman's comments analyzed? They throw out a statement like, "Secretary Clinton's visit will do nothing to fundamentally change the long-term outlook for our region's peace and prosperity if she does not tackle the politically difficult issues of consumption and prohibition in the U.S.," and expect us to ignore it? Why aren't we discussing this at these talks? What the hell is happening to our media if this isn't getting press? That is a BOMBSHELL of a story, it's a policy controversy as big as abortion rights. Get NORML and the DEA on the phone and start a talking head debate or something for God's sake!
11:46 AM on 03/23/2010
That will never happen. With an actual debate Americans will start to realize how foolish our drug laws really are.

Prohibition does not work. Education works, the earlier in life the better.

My head is sore on that side, think I'll switch to a different wall.

That is the only answer to a lot of problems but it seems our politicians love that mess with the arrests, murders and prisons!

Until the corruption in Mexico is dealt with, you are throwing good money after bad in Mexico. If we legalized it in this country people would grow their own and it would eliminate the power of the Drug cartels.
