Amanpour viewers pondered about the impact that the Mexican government has exerted in México’s drug violence. Former Mexican foreign minister, Jorge Castañeda and Consul General, Ruben Beltran shared their plan to encourage the Mexican military and the President’s initiatives to counter such violence and viewers expressed hope. The most commented solution the majority of viewers proposed was to legalize marijuana and tax it. This suggested solution by the audience was in an effort to end violence and increase the economy in México.

Marìa Eva Otero I live in Argentina.
My questions are:
1) Why when there treats itself the topic of the cartels of the drug, does only speak about the " Mexican problem "? When there is a conflict of this nature, there are two involved sides: one that provides and other that consumes, both promoted themselves.
2) do'nt you believe that USA has not made, up to the present, a rational analysis on his role, in this tragedy that lives Mexico, and because of it it has not been solved but the stage has worsened?
And this question counts also for the inmigratory topic....
Maggie Andras I live in Southern California..Question.. Why is it with as many Federal and local officers I see when I've gone to Rosarito Beach, Mexico almost every month,you have such a problem with drug cartels?? We handled our Italian Mafia, you should be able to handle your Mexican Mafia.
