    More great news, Mexico has approved medical cannabis. The global trend towards de-prohibition continues.

    This may also be an important step for other reasons - it may be a real step towards taking power away from cartels. There are other drugs (and other crimes) of course, but Mexico could certainly use one less source of income for gangs and one more for the gov't.

    With U.S. competition hurting its marijuana business, Mexico warms a little to legalization

    Widespread legalization in the U.S. is killing Mexico's marijuana business, and cartel leaders know it. They are increasingly abandoning the crop that was once was their bread and butter and looking elsewhere for profits, producing and exporting drugs including heroin and fentanyl and banking on extortion schemes and fuel theft.

    So when Mexico's tourism secretary this week boldly declared his hopes that Mexico will legalize marijuana for recreational use in an effort to reduce growing violence across the nation, some balked at the notion that marijuana was driving the bloodshed.
