    Big pot bust. 75 tunnels have been found in the last 4 years for smuggling drugs into the states. If the cartels would just spend the money and dig deeper and longer tunnels they would escape attention better don't you think? Then they could smuggle illegals too but then they would tell how they came over and it would be found.

    I think they were banking on it being legalized, then setting up retail centers at the tunnel exits.

    Yes, I read it too. You have to realize that Mexico is a big place and these incidents, although spectacular, are not widespread. There is a war going on down there and people die in war. We are partially responsible for that war because of our appetite for the product. No demand and there would be no war.
