You mean, the US government has neither the courage nor the resources to keep the cartels from attacking Americans on their own soil?
So letting law enforcement fight THAT violence, the same kind thats happening in Mexico now, is just fine is better that way....than NOT letting law enforcement actually fight the war more head-on NOW.
So in your estimation, bringing whats in Mexico now, within the interior of the US is a justifiable risk so long as we have legal pot?

If the cartels are so super-duper powerful, that their threat of attacking American farmers for daring to grow a legal crop is sufficient to deter you, then you are no longer a super power. If the cartels are such a threat, you should be aggressively going after them, not forbidding the cultivation of canabas for fear they might cross the border. If Mexico is so helpless before the cartels, it is no longer a law enforcement problem, but a military one. If it were up to me, I’d legalize pot and DARE the cartels to cross the border. Not in spite of the threat, but BECAUSE of it.
