As a police officer in the 1970s, I saw the drug war start. When I
retired in 1994, drugs were cheaper, stronger and more available to
teens. Everyone hoped that America would soon find the magic bullet, a
new strategy to make us drug-free.

You wrote that you "hope" that new inter-agency cooperation will
result in stopping the drug and gun traffic. Have you not been reading
your own headlines the past 40 years? The "Good Guys" are, at best, a
mosquito on an elephant.

You want to scare the Mexican narcotraficantes? Let your headline
tomorrow be: Legalize/regulate drugs.
