Econ 101

Mexican drug cartels are no doubt thrilled with state Attorney General
Bill Schuette's efforts to undermine Michigan's voter-approved medical
marijuana law. As long as there is a demand for marijuana, there will
be a supply. This is basic economics. Replacing domestic growers with
organized crime groups that also sell cocaine, meth and heroin is not
necessarily a good thing. Marijuana prohibition is a gateway drug
policy. Your tax dollars at work.
