Bowden on Mexico's Drug War

Charles Bowden, author of "Murder City: Ciudad Juarez and the Global Economy's New Killing Fields" on Mexico's drug war:

"Realize the war on drugs is a disaster. It's forty years in. We're at war with our own people. We're destroying nations like Mexico. If you're against drugs, most of your viewers and listeners are on them, only they got them from their doctor.

If you're against drugs, this is a public health issue. You don't send a cop if you're having a cardiac."
