Dealing death and drugs : the big business of dope in the U.S. and Mexico, an argument to end the prohibition of marijuana by Beto O'Rourke( )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: The War on Drugs doesn't work. This became obvious to El Paso City Representatives Susie Byrd and Beto O'Rourke when they started to ask questions about why El Paso's sister city Ciudad Juarez has become the deadliest city in the world-8,000-plus deaths since January 1, 2008. Byrd and O'Rourke soon realized American drug use and United States' failed War on Drugs are at the core of problem. In Dealing Death and Drugs-a book written for the general reader-they explore the costs and consequences of marijuana prohibition. They argue that marijuana prohibition has created a black market so profitable that drug kingpins are billionaires and drug control doesn't stand a chance. Using Juarez as their focus, they describe the business model of drug trafficking and explain why this illicit system has led to the never-ending slaughter of human beings. Their position: the only rational alternative to the War on Drugs is to end to the current prohibition on marijuana
