US should take marijuana legalization seriously

from raw replay: Mexican Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan joined CBS’ Bob Schieffer to talk about the violence on Mexico’s border resulting from the drug trade. Sarukhan told Schieffer that the U.S. should take the debate over marijuana legalization seriously. “This is a debate that needs to be taken seriously, that has to be — that we have to engage in on both sides of the border, both in producing, in trafficking, and in consumption countries, and it is a debate that has to be taken on with seriousness,” he said.

Guns coming across the border into Mexico are a big concern for the ambassador. He believes that 90% of the guns supplied to drug cartels come from the United States. “Ninety percent of all weapons we are seizing in Mexico, Bob, are coming from across the United States,” said Sarukhan.
