    Grenades found being crossed to mexico, this is crazy this means that people hear inside of the US can get grenades and its apparently so easy that people do it for profit. The demand for guns in mexico is creating a new industry in criminals in the US. So now criminals in the US are better armed as well, if there selling AK-47 and grenades to cartels imagine what kind of guns they have for themselves.

    The point of all this is to show what is being caused by are pointless drug war.According the basic principals of economics if lower the supply and the demand stay fairly constant, prices would have rise creating more profit.If there is more profit more people would be willing to take the risk there fore prohibitions creates criminals. Without prohibition criminals would be replaced by employees and cartels would be replaced by corporations
