And the cartels use those profits to bribe government officials, leading to the corruption that brings down both the effectiveness and the respect for government needed for it to function like a first world one. Legalizing drugs would also cut into the profits of the gangs, here, that are responsible for most of the violence in the inner cities. But we have to keep up the farce that is "drug inforcement" because it sends the message that "drugs are bad" and all those "drug warriors" would be out of jobs.
