Legalize Pot in Tourist Areas

Reduce violence?

I hardly think that just in legalizing Mota in Tourist areas would do that. Instead I can imagine even an uptick in violence as the Narcos compete for Corner Space.



You appear to be missing the part about why there is violence in tourist areas. In large part it's to control who gets to make millions of pesos selling to tourists and residents. Remove a large chunk of their market from them and their raison d'etre is also diminished.

I've advocated legalizing ALL popular recreational substances since long before anyone was able to have a level-headed discussion on the subject. Even before renowned economist Milton Friedman famously came out in favor of it in 1991.

But as long as there is profit in misery, there will be needless endless misery.
