Legal marijuana is doing what the drug war could not

An interesting article from the Washington Post about a decades-long drug war that couldn’t do what Legal Marijuana may be doing…taking a bite out of Mexican drug cartels’ profits.

“The latest data from the U.S. Border Patrol shows that last year, marijuana seizures along the southwest border tumbled to their lowest level in at least a decade. Agents snagged roughly 1.5 million pounds of marijuana at the border, down from a peak of nearly 4 million pounds in 2009.”
