The National Rifle Association is right (report, 14 December) in
denying that US weapons are responsible for most of the deaths south
of the border. Prohibition fuels Mexican drug wars, not guns. And
according to US government figures, 60 to 70 per cent of cartel
profits come from cannabis prohibition, so the majority of violence is
due to a relatively safe, extremely popular God-given plant, not drugs.
