Drug War

So I work my through this article   about the terrifying drug wars in Mexico, part of a series. It struck me, in a previous article, that they never mentioned what drug was involved.  This time, in the third to last paragraph, in a long piece, they do, obliquely:

One of Mr. Calderón’s predecessors, Mr. Zedillo, recently joined two other former heads of state from Latin America in pushing for a complete rethinking of the drug war, including the legalization of marijuana, which is considered the top revenue generator for Mexican drug cartels.
