Why are these guys always cooking meth? isn't there a safer drug to formulate? What about ecstacy? I hear that's a pleasant enough drug. Why aren't more of these kids cooking ecstacy?

I'm not really sure - I haven't really looked into it that much but I think (could be wrong) that meth is easier to make and there's that whole problem of finding stupid teenagers who actually want to take ecstasy - not that meth users are any smarter,

Pot is pretty easy to "manufacture". It's not quite as expensive as meth or X, but it practically grows itself and it accounts for about 70% of the Mexican drug cartel's profits.

And quite a bit harder on the manufacture scale.

There's another former officer of their's I went to high school with who got tossed off the force there for dealing weed out of evidence. Not as serious as the one you linked, but I always found it funny as she was the biggest band dork in history back in high school.

that can't be right. i thought the cartels were moving shiatloads of meth? also, if it's that much of the cartel's profits, how come mexican weed is considered some of the worst quality shiat on the market? (or so I've heard)

why aren't the Canadians, for example, on top of the weed game instead of the cartels?

If you could manufacturing meth inside a room stuffed with co2 and as free from humidity as possible would be a good idea. But hey that costs money and college students don't have that.

I don't know if you are sarcastic, incompetent, or just mixed things up.



1. Meth is manufactured largely in the bumblefark regions (rural areas). The ingredients are easy to get, and meth is relatively easy to make. Sure the Cartels also deal in meth, but meths main problem area is rural areas (that is why if you drive through many bumblefark locations you see tons of anti-meth billboards. These rural areas are not targeted by cartels because it is not worth the money, similarly many other synthetic drugs do not reach rural areas hence meth (again easy to get the ingredients easy to make) is such a problem in rural areas. Urban areas have less of a meth problem because there are other drugs that have fewer side affects with comparable results that are just as easy to acquire.

2. Pot is profitable for the Cartels, easy to grow, easy to ship, easy to sell.

3. There is no money in it for Canadians. Mexican Cartels sell in the U.S. because the Americans have $$$ that they will spend on it. Canadians are less likely to deal with the hassle of crossing boarders as the Canadians have $$$ that they will spend on it. It just is not worth it to deal with the added complications and increased risk of dealing across country lines in most cases for Canadians.

There's a good reply already, but neither of the things you bring up contradict the idea that most cartel profit comes from weed.

Cartels can be moving shiatloads of meth and still be moving more weed. Also, while their weed may suck, it still sells. Turns out people like bad weed better than no weed.

Certainly, there is a lot of Canadian weed in America.

Really?
Any sixth grader around here can tell you how to cook meth, usually at least three or four ways.
Which is pretty good considering the only place the hive still lives is the way-back machine.

70% may be an overestimate, but 60-70% is a pretty common statistic for how much Mexican cartels make from pot. Talk to the DEA. They're the ones with the statistics.

Quantity, not quality.

And think about it - how many people do you know who smoke pot or have smoked pot? Compare that to everyone you ever met that ever used meth.

A few things incorrect there Lligeret. The mexican drug cartels are much more into crystal methamphetamine than they are marijuana. This has been true since at least the early 90's when they took over meth distribution from the biker gangs. Let that one sink in, The Hells Angels got pushed out by the cartels. That isn't to say they aren't the number one source of imported marijuana in the united states, because they are. Dollar wise though, meth is cheaper & faster to manufacturer and sells for a much, much, much higher percentage markup. At minimum you are asking for 6 months on a grow op, people to take care of the plants that entire time, water, electricity, the costs add up. As for thinking there is no money in the weed game for Canadians? Are you really that out of touch with grow culture? Canadian weed is easily some of the highest priced/best quality being imported into the US and has been for a number of years. There is a reason most grow ops are actually against legalization, it keeps the profits high. Rereading your post Lligeret, it seems you weren't actually correct in a single thing. So you've got that going for you.

if we legalized and manufactured ALL drugs, there'd be no more cartels. think about THAT.
and no more meth explosions.

only side effect would be less/more people with ADHD due to OTC meth

i got no problems with that
