    real impact on global drug demand.

    Even if drugs in the region were sold at cost, the real driver of international drug prices are the developed economies. So, it might affect consumption in the region (depending on regulations & taxing, as I said above), but wouldn't probably affect consumption in the US.

    Of course, there would be a policy problem in the US, since trafficking would be allowed within the region. Probably that's the reason the US Administration is trying to stop the debate.

    The problem is that too many people are dying in Mexico and Guatemala to continue pursuing the route suggested by the US military.
