Carlos Fuentes on Mexico's drug scars
As a political commentator and the author of more than 20 novels, Carlos Fuentes is one of the most respected voices in Mexico. He has been chronicling his country's development since the late 1950s, but in recent years, he has become preoccupied with Mexico's drug war, a conflict between the government and the country's drug cartels that has led to over 45,000 murders in the last five years.

In an interview for The National, Fuentes spoke to reporter Nahlah Ayed about the toll the drug war is taking on the Mexican psyche, and the bold solution he proposes for ending it.
