Years ago, one of my friends told me she worried about her son, a weed researcher for a large university. To conduct his studies of the effects of imported plants (weeds) on indigenous species, he purchases or leases large plots deep within the forests of the Pacific Northwest. My friend's concern was that he would come across a heavily guarded marijuana crop and never return.
I thought about this when I read this: [url=https://www.aolnews.com/2011/04/22/expert-sylvia-longmire-mexican-drug-cartels-infesting-us-even/?icid=main%7Chtmlws-main-n%7Cdl1%7Csec1_lnk3%7C210562]"Expert: Mexican Drug Cartels Infesting US, Even Our National Parks,"[/url]. I don't hike, and after reading this, I doubt I will make too many forays deep into our national parks
It also vastly annoys me that they would dare bring their crime up here!
