Pot Smuggling Changes Direction
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the usual smuggling of marijuana into California from Mexico has reversed course. Now it's being smuggled into Mexico, in part the Chronicle reports, due to legalization efforts in California:
" As the flow of cartel brick weed into the U.S. dwindles to due further legalization measures, the phenomenon of smuggling California pot southbound to Mexico has arisen.
The abundance of high-quality legal marijuana in California has created a demand in Mexico that local cartels can’t supply with their own homegrown product,"
This seems to make the point I've made here and elsewhere that smaller growers with more high quality product will always find a market for their goods, that the larger grows can't provide. How long that lasts is anyone's guess.
Vote Yes on Prop 64.
