  • States that have legalized cannabis have done more damage to the cartels than the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration).
  • Cartels move away from smuggling cannabis and on to other substances (e.g., opioids, fentanyl)
  • Supreme Court Justice stated cannabis prosecutions have also reduced


  • Smuggling of cannabis has declined when states legalize cannabis
  • Reduce the number of legal resources (e.g. police and lawyers) prosecuting cannabis crimes
