Do you think our government is making an honest effort to stop drugs from entering our country?
The illegal drug trade pumps millions of dollars into our economy.The majority of criminal cases in our courts have to do with drugs.This means job security for thousands of judges,lawers,prosecuters,cops,federal agents,prison guards,and many other people who work in the justice system.I don't believe the goverment can completely stop drugs,but when you look at the situation on the mexican border,you have to wonder why our politicians are reluctant to take action.

Hell no. It's a trillion dollar industry. The only politicians making a half-hearted rhetorical effort are, not coincidentally, from the states where marijuana is their number one agricultural crop.

Yes, as a matter of fact, the DEA has ramped back up it's attention to that problem after having been diverted after 9-11 to homeland security related issues.

Meh. Who can say for certain. To some politicians, the subject of border security, in general, is viewed as political suicide.
