Hillary Clinton Claims Legalization Not Solution To Drug War

” Clinton also said that even if the drug cartels were driven from the drug trade they would find other areas in which they could make money:

“When you’ve got ruthless, vicious people who have made money one way and it’s somehow blocked, they’ll figure out another way.”

This reply seems to admit that legalization would block the cartels from making money drug trafficking and actually grants critics one of their points in favor of legalization.

 Clinton also spoke about the Obama administration’s response to the recent legalization of marijuana in referenda in Colorado and Washington saying:

“We are formulating our own response to the votes of two of our states as you know — what that means for the federal system, the federal laws and law enforcement.”
