In speech, Calderon acknowledges central threat of "drug cartels" to Mexico

If youve been following this blog for a while, you will remember that all was quiet until the US began building a fence [still unfinished] and changing patterns of behaviour. Policy against organised crime has to involve profiling the consequences of changing existing arrangements and has to budget for policies to deal with those consequences. I dont argue that nothing should be done. I argue that doing stuff should be properly thought through. Bush's drug tsar stirred the pot and scarpered leaving the mess for the next administration to deal with.

has an ounce less cocaine hit the streets of the US? An ounce less marijuana? Has more hit the streets of Europe? Bears? Woods? Popes? Catholics?
