For Mexico's situation, if drugs were legal trade then it would certainly assist in diffusion, but given that America is poised on the brink of poverty anyways this might be moot. Second is that Mexico has to organize its army to fight this threat as it would any other hostile invader. Not pretty, but that's it.
Also for those that believe legalizing drugs in Mexico would solve the problem, I find that idea hard to credit. While their illegality certainly contributes to the problem, the problem itself is independent of drug legality. In other words, were drugs suddenly to become legal the Cartels would still be there trying to maintain power. Not to mention that it is actually the US that would have to legalize drugs in order to actually have a precipitable effect.
As for why Canadians still travel their to vacation? They don't perceive it as dangerous obviously. I think they are factually wrong, but that has no effect on whatever their perception happens to be.
