The best way to prevent countries like Guinea-Bissau or Mexico (not to mention Colombia and Afghanistan) becoming ‘failed states’ is to allow legally regulated global markets for non-medical use of drugs. This would instantly take most of the money out of the trade. Until this happens the drugs trade will always damage and corrupt societies.
Prohibition has failed. The solution is control and regulation.

Kind regards,
