MURDER CARTEL DEATHRIDE
The Southern border of America is the life blood of the Mexican cartels. It is the membrane for which drugs, guns, and people flow through. Americans are the largest consumer of illegal drugs. They consume more drugs than any other nation in the world. whether it is legal drugs or illegal, America's appetite for getting fucked up is unquenchable. The cartels are very aware of this need and fill America's order on the regular. In this print I tried to channel the feeling of Santa Claus but in stead of presents and joy the Murder Cartel Deathride brings violence, drugs, and death. The on going war on drugs has done nothing to curb the violence and flow of drugs coming into the states. The only successful legislation that has put a damper on the cartel's business is the legalization of marijuana. If going to war has only made cartels and other players in the game stronger than it is time to take that power away through the decriminalization/legalization of all drugs. When we do that then we can finally destroy the murderous cartels of Mexico.
