We recently shared the concerns of Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area director Tom Gorman, who's worried that Mexican cartels losing money due to higher-quality Colorado pot will force their way into the local marijuana business using extortion and threats of violence. Most of our readers didn't buy Gorman's arguments, with this one singing the praises of local products.

I trust Colorado pot over Mexican Cartels pot any day, bro. At least I don't have to worry about it being spiked with human urine or shards of glass when I buy it in Colorado......lol.
