Mexican Study: Marijuana Legalization Would Hurt Cartels — Badly

What is this again?

Demand for marijuana grown in Mexico and smuggled over the border would decline so much that dealers' income from the drug would drop by 22 to 30 percent if the states vote to legalize, according to Mexican think tank Mexican Competitive Institute.
Legitimate, legal cannabis would sell for half as much as illicit Mexican weed, the think tank posits. That's “enormous,” the usually marijuana-hating Los Angeles Times reported. That's also common knowledge among opponents of the drug war, who reacted to the study with a “duh.”
