Salon's Andrew O'Hehir: The War on Drugs and America's Voracious Drug Appetite Have Rendered the Deaths of Thousands of Mexicans


Salon's Andrew O'Hehir: The Price Paid by Mexico due to the U.S. Drug War and the U.S. Appetite for Drugs

"You can call it compassion or shame or sheer self-interest, but the same war that has killed thousands in Mexico (including many innocent bystanders) has also fueled the growth of the prison-industrial complex in the United States, and driven the widespread incarceration of brown and black people. However many border fences we build and however much we demonize each other, our two nations have a shared destiny, and any cancer that poisons one will also poison the other."
---Andrew O'Hehir, Salon
