Home Grown Pot Cutting into Mexican Cartels’ Bottom Line

This is an interesting twist in the drug war. It will be interesting to see how this shakes out and how the Mexican Cartels react. Then again, this won’t put the cartels out of business. They seem to be doing fine financially.

I have talked with my Kansas farmer friends and we have decided if you guys would allow us to grow it we would put these cartel clowns out of business in 2 years. We would raise so much stuff in the hot great plains that the price would plummet and we would likely need a government price support…heh. But we would surely put them out of business. And any other drug product if so needed.

Grow it , Tax it. Use money for health care.

But that is common sense, so it will never be.

Good luck.
