The costs of the drug trade

As I return to the US, the NYT has reminded me of the incredible violence happening because of the drug trade. Its a reminder that the insane violence in No Country For Old Men is not that far from reality.

Personally, I have no problem with marijuana. Its probably better for you than alcohol. But its not produced in any real quantity in the US, and so every time a person buys it, they are paying for this violence.
