Re “Knocking down the kingpins,” Editorial, Dec. 5
Killing the heads of drug cartels has an effect similar to cutting
off the top of a weed. It will grow back stronger than ever.
The only way to get rid of any weed is to kill the root – and the
root of our problem is prohibition.
Law enforcement didn’t get rid of the alcohol cartels in 1933;
re-legalizing alcohol did.
