Law enforcement is right - it haven’t seen the last of these tunnels. As long as we keep marijuana illegal the cartels will NEVER cease trying to find new ways to get their weed into our country. There’s just too much money at stake for them!

If we really want to beat the cartels and end the building of these tunnels then we have to legally regulate marijuana just as we do with alcohol and tobacco.

In 75 years the federal marijuana prohibition has NEVER prevented the use of marijuana in our country. It’s time to end this failed and deadly experiment and let our stores sell legally-grown marijuana to adults at prices low enough to prevent illegal competition.
