Fake news CNN is worried about illegal/cartel weed farmers
I thought this was a parody post when I initially saw a picture of a tweet, but apparently this is legit. These faggots at CNN are worried about the "poor farmers"

CNN headline
"Canada's legalization of marijuana could hurt farmers in poorer countries"

For decades poor farmers in countries like Jamaica and Morocco have risked the wrath of governments and gangsters to grow cannabis as a cash crop.

But as Canada becomes the first country in the Group of Seven leading industrial nations to fully legalize marijuana, those countries where the crop has traditionally been grown risk losing out on new legal markets worth billions of dollars.
When people think of cannabis production in developing countries, they tend to picture drug cartels and bandits.
The truth, says Martin Jelsma of the Transnational Institute (TNI), a Dutch drug-policy research organization, is that most growers are poor farmers, often women, who cultivate marijuana on small holdings in the hills and mountains.
Canada just legalized recreational pot. Here's what you need to know

Now they are competing with Western corporations. And with no international institution to represent them because of the illegality of marijuana in most of the world -- even the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization, whose mandate is to fight rural poverty and hunger, has no experts or policy on this cash crop -- growers risk being left behind.
"It's all about trying to bring some of these small farmers into the opening market," said Jelsma.
"The big risk is there is a complete corporate capture going on. It's happening in the medical market, especially with Canadian and Israeli companies, and there is a lot of money involved," he said.

RE: Fake news CNN is worried about illegal/cartel weed farmers
All around retarded article that leaves me left wondering if anybody that wrote it, edited it, and published it has step foot in the real world in the past decades.

North America stopped being supplied with cannabis from abroad sometime between the late 60s and 80s. This isn't even relevant.

Also who the fuck cares about drug smugglers? People are poor, yeah it sucks, some of them choose to risk it all in a life of crime and some of them choose not to. Break the laws of the land and you get prosecuted if you gey caught. Sorry man life is tough.

Also "often women". Please, c'mon.

I would like to know what the margin was of that "poor" farmer in a country dominated by the cartel? Thanks, we will take 99,9% and give you a few shekels.
