Daily Roundup: Did Pot Kill Cooley’s A.G. Campaign?

1. A massive drug tunnel with rail system between the US and Mexico was discovered, along with twenty tons of pot, authorities announced yesterday. Most of it is likely destined for other states. A recent RAND study found drug cartels make an estimated 3 percent of their revenue from pot sales to Californians, and seventeen percent of their total revenue from pot sales to the other states. “About 75 tunnels along the U.S.-Mexico border have been unearthed in the last four years, most of them in various states of construction. The discovery comes two weeks after the Mexican military in Tijuana seized a record 134 tons of marijuana.”
