More proof that the war on drugs is an abject failure.  We need to change tactics so that the drug cartels have the $$ motive removed.The drug problem should be considered a medical matter not a criminal one.

There are far to many non violent drug 'offenders' in jails & prisons who should be let out.

This could be done by RE-legalizing all drugs & dispense them through dispensaries. There should also be Consequences Of Use education. 

RE-legalizing all illegal drugs & controlling them would take away the profit motive from the drug cartels & eliminate a lot of corruption that has infected law enforcement at many levels. 

If we did that being a LEO would be a lot safer. So would be being a private citizen.
