Shocking News Legalisation of Marijuana costs Drug Cartels money.
Marijuana legalization is already making mexican drug cartels poorer

The fact that legalisation is in it's infancy and is already making a dent in the Cartels cash flow is very encouraging.

To be honest, I'm surprised Mexican cartels even bother with weed.
Weed seems very much like a you know a guy who knows a guy who grows some in his basement sort of drug.

I woulda thunk cocaine would be their biggest revenue, and why this legalization of weed wont effect the underlining problem that is 'cartels' all that much. People will still be killed, Mexico will still be fucked up etc..

RE: Shocking News Legalisation of Marijuana costs Drug Cartels money.
Muffs did the math......

I do know a bit about this, as I did do 7 years in the Coast Guard - and saw quite a bit of stuff on drug trafficking...

Marijuana is more for the amateur smuggler. I've seen the results. I got drafted (picked out of the TV room, while still in uniform) to go help unload a 42 foot sailboat that had been found floundering around in the Bering Sea with some very stoned people on board. It was ballasted with bales of pot....

I got the story from a friend of mine - that they had encountered this boat bobbing around off the south part of the end of the Aleutian chain- and when the Coast Guard called the sailboat on the VHF to ask if all was well -- the reply was "We're doing pretty good - but we're out of beer.... You guys have any???". .... ... Pull it over Captain Happy......

We unloaded the dope on to the end of an old pier -- they doused it with diesel fuel, and burned it........ (the pier was scheduled for demolition anyway)... There was a bunch of locals sitting downwind across the bay.... It put out quite a cloud of smoke....

Yeah -- cocaine is far more lucrative --- when you consider it's worth more than it's weight in gold. Literally.

So does it cost the cartels ??? Sure... It's equivalent to somebody stealing your empty beer cans for the deposit...... It probably pisses them off a bit -- they do seem to have anger issues ---- but in the long run, just making marijuana legal isn't going to shut them down..................

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

RE: Shocking News Legalisation of Marijuana costs Drug Cartels money.
40 years ago the impact might have been significant. Today they're into not only more lucrative narcotics like the above mentioned, but have branched out to everything from oil to forming shadow governments and levying their own taxes.

Yesterday, cartel assassin's broke into the home of and murdered the mayor of Temixco (near Mexico City) the day after she took office. When they're doing stuff like this seemingly at will, it's a little too late for an easy solution.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all about denying them a bit of pocket change. But it's more of a nuisance to them than a legitimate threat to their illegitimate power.

Stark has been waging a private war against the cartels for a while, one roach at a time.
