Primasová, Rachel ; Kozák, Kryštof (advisor) ; Drhlíková, Eva (referee) ; Perutka, Lukáš (referee)

Obama chose to look at this problem as a health issue. His attitude was distributed via the National drug control.

In Mexico, Felipe Calderón chose a strongly repressive attitude via the National development plan. His attitude became the "drug war" that caused violence in the street and led to the extension of the conflict. Next president Enrique Peña Nieto promised to take a step back to peace. But in the end, mortality raised to the maximum and the drug trade continued to be a great security problem. Both the US and the Mexican strategies failed to fulfil their goals due to not approaching the drug trade as a complex issue and disregarding changing circumstances. Keywords: Drug trade, drugs, USA, Mexico, Barack Obama, Enrique Peña Nieto, Felipe Calderón, ONDCP
