With pot being legal in two states, and essentially legal in about 24 others who use the “don’t ask, don’t smell” test, Phillip Morris has decided the potential profits are far too large to let this one go.
As reported in Abril Uno, Phillip Morris is in negotiations with Mexican drug lords to negotiate better marijuana pricing, at least until the company has time to ramp up production.
There is rumor that the U.S. Justice Department, under the careful watch of Attorney General Eric Holder, might even throw in a few assault weapons to sweeten the deal. Their theme song? Workin’ on the Choom Gang.
