Will Mexico’s Independent Weed Market Make a Difference Against the Cartels?
This small-scale commerce has been left untouched by gangs or cartels and even the government. It’s a group of people who are utilizing the liminal nature of the current drug laws to grow in a legal grey area. The problem will happen once the full legal implementation of cannabis occurs within Mexico. There will most assuredly be many independent growers and suppliers trying to step into the marketplace – meaning that potentially by December of this year – the cartels could actually face stiff competition.
