Boston Globe’s Rio Grande Drug War, A Photo Essay

These are powerful photos about the war on drugs. In perusing the comments, I see that most people lay the blame on drug dealers, illegal gun dealers, and some corrupt cops instead of condemning a system that attempts to control through force what people are allowed to trade.

Greg, I agree. Drugs do not cause violence. War, by definiton, does. War, regardless of how noble or just the cause, kills people. This particular war is being waged for the noble and just cause of destroying human life and liberty. The good news is that if you support prohibition, and you want someone to blame for the bloodshed, you need look no further than your own mirror.
