Of Drugs and War

My latest article for The International was just published. Did you know there's a new law in Mexico that will pay the families of drug war victims up to $70,000? With over 65,000 victims in six years, this is already a multimillion dollar law, and from where the money will come is still pretty unclear.

Also, the drug war is still pretty contentious. A lot of effort has been put in my both the Mexican and American governments, but cartels are still committing grisly murders, transporting drugs, and creating a lot of violence. So will this law help?

  1. Sarah! Your article is amazing, and the way it was written is phenomenal! I sound like a broken record, but you are just so talented.

    On another note, t's so sad to read about all the bad going on...especially the drug wars. Sometimes my husband and I talk about what we think would somehow make it better, but I really just don't know. I had no idea about the new law until you brought it up. I'm like an ostrich with its head in the sand...


I'm all about conversation over here, so what's on your mind?
