The presidency of Felipe Calderon, though it has in many ways achieved positive results, will likely be remembered mainly for the sharp upward spike in drug-related violence that took place under his administration (2006-2012). In 2006, the drugs trade was pervasive, but not particularly violent. This is no longer the case. By the end of Calderon’s term, drug-related violence had increased markedly. Ironically, it was Calderon’s decision to send the military into his home state of Michoacan that triggered the increase in violence.
