The softening of the drug wars and the popular culture becoming more accepting and permissive in marijuana use is causing lots of death and destruction south of the border for a supposed “victimless crime.” Whole towns have been burned to the ground and thousands are refugees within their own country because every 22 year old in the US wants to sit on their ass, smoke bongs and play Xbox. Check out what the cartels are doing to their war machines. Total Mad Max.
From Deadlinelive here:
For over a year, the criminal organization known as Los Zetas has moved in to the Falcon Lake area on the Texas-Mexico border, chasing out paramilitary groups from the Gulf Drug Cartel. As these two drug cartel organizations fought for this crucial smuggling route or ‘plaza,’ Los Zetas burned down the city of Mier and several big businesses in the town of Miguel Aleman, Mexico.
With the exception of the local news media on both sides of the border, the major news outlets in Mexico and the U.S. have been silent, as local residents have been forced out of their homes, creating a refugee crisis to the point in which the city of Roma, Texas has been involved in humanitarian tasks to assist the city government of Miguel Aleman, providing food and clothing to people in need.
The gun battles, ambushes, and tactics used by the drug cartels are becoming more sophisticated. In the counter-attack, the Gulf Cartel has moved in several hundred kilometers into Zeta territory in the state of Nuevo Leon, where on a daily basis, hundreds of dead mutilated bodies have been found.
Smoking pot is not a victimless crime if you buy it off the streets. Liberals abhor killing off villages in the name of big business and colonization, but are just peachy with it if it means they can get high.
