Longmire: Legalized Pot Will Force Cartels to Diversify Further

Longmire: Legalized Pot Will Force Cartels to Diversify Further

Breitbart Texas’ Contributing Editor and author of the forthcoming book Border Insecurity recently joined Fusion LIVE to discuss the market effects of American states legalizing marijuana with respect to Mexican cartels.

“[Legalization] will be a big financial hit if marijuana is fully legalized but [cartels] could get on the legal side and will still be illegal in other parts of the world where marijuana is in demand. But sure, they’ll shift their resources to other illegal drugs–they’ll also take a look at kidnapping, extortion of businesses in Mexico–there are a lot of ways cartels can make money even if marijuana was fully legalized in the U.S.”

Watch the full interview segment below.

Sylvia Longmire’s book will hit bookstores on April 22, 2014.
