“Mexican war on drugs “
There has been a lot of efforts to try and put an end to the drug menace on the streets. Trillions of money have been spent to deal with this problem which has been spearheaded by the American government since the 1970s. However the Mexican government only joined the fight as from 2006 because most people felt like the fight was on a racist movement which was only targeting Mexicans (Campos 12). The fight between the drug lords and cartels with the Mexican and American governments has led to the loss of many innocent citizens. Its believed that drug cartels are well connected with politicians in the Mexican government starting from mayors and even those in the federal government (Campos 10). This is one of the reasons why it has not been easy to successfully deal with this issue because the same people who are fighting it are the ones encouraging it.
