Legal Weed KILLING Drug Cartels

Video by : The Young Turk – 2016.03.12

Legal weed is having a profound affect on the revenue of Mexican drug cartels. They says that the legal pot in America is better quality and less expensive, which is hurting their bottom line. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian hosts of The Young Turks discuss.

Should the US legalize weed? Would it kill the drug cartels? Let us know in the comments below.

“Marijuana legalization may have accomplished what the War on Drugs has failed to do — put the squeeze on Mexican drug cartel activity.

The U.S. Border Patrol has released 2015 data showing that the number of marijuana seizures throughout the southwest U.S./Mexico border has fallen to the lowest level in a decade, the Washington Post reports.

Mexican manufacturers of illegal marijuana bricks have driven down prices as residents in California, Colorado, and Washington state now have safe access to reasonably affordable medical marijuana and/or recreational cannabis.

“Two or three years ago, a kilogram [2.2 pounds] of marijuana was worth $60 to $90,” a Mexican marijuana grower told NPR news in December 2014. “But now they’re paying us $30 to $40 a kilo. It’s a big difference. If the U.S. continues to legalize pot, they’ll run us into the ground.”
