RAND Study: Prop 19 Would Increase National Security

0

Voting Yes on Prop 19 would make the country safer by further defunding violent Mexican drug cartels, an independent study from the RAND Corporation released today has found. Californians’ great, low-cost cannabis has already pushed out expensive, low-quality Mexican dope from the state’s market, the study found. If Prop 19 passed and California’s domestic exports went up — as they likely would — the same effect would happen across the country. Mexican drug cartels could lose 20 percent of their revenue, amounting to $2 billion dollars a year, RAND found.
