You'd have to legalize/at the very least decriminalize all drugs to get rid of the cartels influence, but that is a great idea. Expand the anemic Border Patrol, and FDA with no longer necessary DEA. I like it, they could even keep all their paramilitary gear!!!Shift the current industry to the borders, have them deal with the trafficking.
I suppose the theory is that once it is decriminalized, you will then see less influence of cartels (inability to compete), so eventually, that established industry (DEA) would have to downsize.
How about, instead of eradicating the DEA, the branch becomes our primary border enforcement? Wouldn't this make everyone happy?
