"The United States continues to crack down on drug trafficking despite a growing number of citizens who think we should legalize drugs.
If you have doubts about the legalization of drugs in the United States, you are not alone. It’s important to consider all the facts before coming to conclusions. Gangrillas uncovers the facts and data that usually remain hidden.
In addition to discussing ways the drug trade affects the United States, authors D. Mendez Beddow and Sam J. Thibodeaux examine its roots in other countries. They consider a variety of topics, including
• the pros and cons of legalization;
• the historical background of Bolivarization;
• the drug trade and its connection to terrorism.
The Western Hemisphere Drug Policy Commission was quietly created in December 2009 to determine the merits of legalizing drugs. Meanwhile, just several months later, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declared the turf war of the Mexican cartels an “insurgency” similar to the situation in Colombia twenty years ago.
Establish your own, informed opinions and develop a clear understanding of the pros, cons, and challenges that would accompany the legalization of drugs in Gangrillas."
