I have read little in the comunist press on the war on drugs.
From my own research I contend it is possibly the most important economic phenomenon of our times.
The market in illegal drugs is worth trillions of dollars, and this can be viewed alongside the market in legal drugs, both of which condition each other.
I have read that the US financial system is depensent on laundering the cartels' money and that the CIA has been a key figure in drug trafficking. The war on drugs itself is a means to oppress the poor, particularly the minorities.
At this very moment it is being reported that parts of the USA (not only Mexico) are under the control of the cartels.
I consider this as big an issue as oil, and would like to see a comprehensive analysis of this phenomenon from a communist perspective.
Thanking you in anticipation.
