I want to share an article with you that started me thinking. Mexican drug cartels have moved into small towns in the south and southwest. In these sleepy little towns, they even blatantly growing Marijuana.
We have a border that is uncomfortably open to provide cheap labor in the fields at harvest time, gardeners and etc. In the countries where we have troops, this would not be tolerated. But here, corporate farming America rules. Small farms don’t need this kind of mass labor pool and they treat land and animals better.
