Would Gang Violence Decrease With Drug Legalization

The Mexican Tourism Minister, De La Madrid, is advocating Marijuana legalization while former President Fox, proposes that poppy opium production be legalized. The aim of both ideas is to reduce gang violence. President Pena Nieto thinks that Mexico and the US should not pursue divergent drug policy . At the same time, the Trudeau government in Canada is considering the decriminalization of all illegal substances.

The question is, Would a combination of decriminalization and legalization significantly reduce drug related violence. While the devil is in the details, I think the answer is yes. ....JB
