Mexican Drug Cartels Are Growing Marijuana in U.S. National Parks and Forests
Mexican cartels have a multibillion-dollar operation cultivating marijuana in National Parks and Forests in the U.S., said John P. Walters, who heads the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, according to a July 23rd Washington Times article by Jerry Seper. Protected by heavily armed Mexicans and members of U.S. gangs, marijuana growers are clear-cutting forest, illegally hunting wildlife, diverting waterways, and leaving mountains of trash and human waste in Arizona, California, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, Kentucky, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
