I know a bunch of Salvi's, and legalizing drugs won't help much. The place is a shithole with lots of corruption, and extortion. I know some homeowners who have to give money to gang members to be "protected." In Los Angeles you have a free clinic called Clinica Monsenor Oscar A Romero. It was named like that to honor Salvi Archbishop Oscar Romero. He spoke up against the violence, and the government decided to punch his ticket. Only way to stop the violence there is to overthrow the government, but if you do that you will open up another can of worms, because Salvis like many Central Americans have very pro-marxist views. That's why for the most part people from down there who come to America vote Democrat, because it aligns closest with their beliefs.
