Legalize it, tax the crap out of it, and if people want to throw their lives away in a drug induced haze go right ahead.
This is something we can agree on, but also a reason I don't' think the wall will be effective in stemming the flow of drugs (or illegal guns etc). The US has spent over a trillion dollars going on 4 decades now to fight the "War on Drugs" and they are as prevalent as ever. So are the problems created by them. As long as there's a huge market here for drugs, I don't see a wall stopping this. If the DEA/US government thought it would, I would think a complete wall solution would've come up long ago.

Also, as long as a much better life is available here in the US, it won't stop people trying to get out of the hellish situations to get here.
