    Indeed. All heroine entering the US comes from the Mexican state of Guerrero, nobody there uses it at all. This series on showtime is excellent. Don Miguel is no joke.

    Go ahead and pull your statistics, I think you'll find they don't support your argument.

    White people use, buy, and sell drugs are roughly the same rate as any other group. They just get charged for it about 3 times less.

    American demand and America's drug policy is nearly 100% responsible for the drug violence south of our border.

    Do you have a link to those stats ?

    All drugs or just weed ?

    I did the police thing for almost ten years in STL city... weed was largely overlooked unless it was some serious weight, but crack, meth, heroin, and to a lesser extent, cocaine (barely see it anymore) were rarely, if ever, let off and being white had no bearing on whether or not you'd be charged with VMCSL.

    Clearly you saw a source that I posted. I'm impressed you were able to read the table of contents. Good job.

    Naturally your "conclusion" or "opinion" (I'm being generous) is ill-informed and couldn't be more off base but what the hell at least you proved to me you're likely able to 1. read and 2. know numbers into double-digits. Congrats!!

    Blacks and Hispanics combined are just 29% of the total population, yet make up as much as 75% of the prison population for drug related offenses.

    Hispanics as a group actually buy, use, and sell drugs at far lower rates than both whites and blacks.

    Not that I am arguing for this but the people in Singapore seem to have done a pretty good job

    Yea, I've been to playa del Carmen , yelapa, puerto vallarta ,Cabo and Cancun...haven't had any issue. Then again, these are the touristy areas.

    I wonder if the government has a deal with the cartels to not fuck around in those areas

    Yea , and other similar countries which have a complete zero tolerance policy for drugs.

    I don't care how much money you paid me, I would not try to smuggle in drugs into Singapore . I would be scared shitless

    Would you want to live in a full fledged police state?

    From what I understand, Singapore isn't a police state . They do have strict laws, which are pretty easy to obey.

    In regards to your question I'm not advocating that the USA adopt similar laws .

    Singapore is different though, their culture is way different from ours. They seem far more trusting of and obedient to authority like most Asians while us Americans don't quite like the gubment telling us what we can and can't do and that's doubly so for drugs.

    And more importantly Singapore is a city state and is significantly less free than America. I'd imagine its easier to keep drugs out of a city than the third largest country on earth.

    I am not disagreeing with this. I had a Singapore guy at my gym a couple months ago. My old training partner runs a school out there so this guy was visiting us. I talked to the guy about their laws. It was pretty shocking how on board he was with their laws. I would not want to live that way. However I don't have a problem with drug use.

    that is not what I asked you.

    Do you think you can keep it out by tightening the border and do you not recognize that any success in keeping it out will only result in the demand and price shooting up and thus more money for more elaborate ways to get it in?

    my question is 'do you realize the fallacy in the core logic you espoused in that you cannot fortify the border enough to keep it out'.

    threatening the citizens with the Death Penalty if caught can indeed deter a lot of it and that is key. it is not building the border to try and keep it out when the demand remains high. It is rather, trying to reduce demand by what most would consider draconian means such as Singapore has. That is the only true way to make an impact imo.
