  1. Mexico should eliminate marijuana from the drug war. Cannabis is here in the US with many states to follow.
    Maybe then homicides and military confrontations can curb Mexico's violence.
    Truth is; it makes perfect sense.

  2. Excellent 👍 catch. Marina's haven't reached the quota this year so far.

  3. I didn't think they were still shipping weed, yeah I guess it wakes sense, there's still a lot of places here that don't have the best access and tollerance like the sw.does.I don't really smoke so I'm kind of in a bubble about that.
