They seem to have become more powerful, no doubt. Their rise to power clearly relates to the drug trade and our USA policies. That said, if all drugs were legalized here today, I’m not sure how that would help solve the problems there, since many of the current activities, especially in terms of extortion, don’t seem to me to be directly related to the drug trade.
