have you ever read /Narcoland/ by Anabel Hernandez? You should https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anabel_Hern%C3%A1ndez

she has to go around with at least two bodyguards, and reputedly more at times, even in Berkeley, due to numerious known credible death threats and cartel contracts on her life

why do idiots think we need to get involved with failed or criminal states in the Middle East when we have one right next door that sends us floods of illegals daily?

you also should read her book Masscre in Mexico about the missing 43 students apparently tortured and murdered for protesting

Anyone who buys dope from Mexico is supporting this. Hard to have effective law enforcement in a country where narco profits fund private armies and assassins aimed at judges and police chiefs.

Sorry, but given the absolute levels of corruption we find out going on in America, I could really care less about Mexico.

Even though our hispanic population has doubled since 2000, Biden’s plan says that “systemic racism has infected our immigration system” They want to grant citizenship to 11 million that are in the US illegally. Chain immigration will do the rest. The Reconquista will be complete and the border can open wide up.

In Mexico, cartels are hunting down police at their homes

MEXICO CITY (AP) — The notoriously violent Jalisco cartel has responded to Mexico’s “hugs, not bullets” policy with a policy of its own: The cartel kidnapped several members of an elite police force in the state of Guanajuato, tortured them to obtain names and addresses of fellow officers and is now hunting down and killing police at their homes, on their days off, in front of their families.

It is a type of direct attack on officers seldom seen outside of the most gang-plagued nations of Central America and poses the most direct challenge yet to President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s policy of avoiding violence and rejecting any war on the cartels.

But the cartel has already declared war on the government, aiming to eradicate an elite state force known as the Tactical Group which the gang accuses of treating its members unfairly.

“If you want war, you’ll get a war. We have already shown that we know where you are. We are coming for all of you,” reads a professionally printed banner signed by the cartel and hung on a building in Guanajuato in May.

Correct. And I am thinking these Mexican cartel chiefs are powerful enough to do that to US politicians as well. "Senora Nancy, keep the border open and we will fund money to your various relatives and businesses. Close the border and your kids and grandkids get the Seth Rich treatment."

Your 2021 Toyota pick up was made in Guanajuato.

Mexico is so fucked; the majority of the people have distrust of the government and so the country is mostly lawless.

A lot of Mexicans are in favor of the cartels; they provide money to many people and Mexicans don’t care if Americans take drugs.

Yeah so? Is the Toyota factory cartel owned? There is a big difference between buying legal products from Mexico and buying drugs that support the cartels.

There's only two solutions that have ever been effective:

1. Legalize drugs - Mexican cartels no longer ship marijuana as the US has completely wiped out their profit margin on cannabis.
2. Auto Defensas - Citizen brigades have been largely successful in thwarting narcos because they are local, less corrupt, and have the biggest incentive to stop cartel violence.

MJ is legalized in CA yet there are plenty of illegal growing spots popping up all over the desert. One was even found in Death Valley. How come legalization didn't wipe these out?

To avoid being left out of the 2021 Mexican elections because of a constitutional principle of “gender parity”, 18 male candidates from the Force for Mexico party in Tlaxcala state have filed for candidacy as trans women.

The legal prices are too high. (So to speak.)

Just like mafiosa and cigarettes. Regulation, licenses, revenoors and taxation cut down on the profit margins, so it's better if you can sell illegally.

So legal and free market are two different things. If we had free market, there would be no guerilla grows, because there would be no financial incentive to cut corners. But since all US business is tainted by socialism, most growers have actually gone back underground, except for the ones who were able to establish a really good brand. Just the startup costs are exorbitant, as Ceffer mentioned. But the profit has shrunk because the socialist system has opened the door to big business, and greater supply. Last time I sold was the smallest amount I ever made, but shop prices haven't really dropped that I've seen.

The whole industry is just as fucked as ever. No one cares about medical research or patient care, no one gives a shit about organic. It's all about money, and government cutting deals for their buddies. I only use products I grow myself, that way I know there's no Brix in it.

Mexico voted in their midterms yesterday. Insane fact: 97 politicians were assassinated just during this election cycle!
