Rick Rockwell of American University argued in the State Journal (March 15)
that the United States should not certify Mexico as a trade parter because
of its drug (not to include alcohol) cartels.  This article appears
appropriately next to letters about a state senator who is charged with
drunken driving for the third time.

The real cartel in this world is the liquor industry. For this cartel, the
United States wages war on tis citizens who choose intoxication by other
than the World's Official Drug of choice: Alcohol. We have lost much of the
Bill of Rights with no reduction in harm caused by drug use.
