Prop. 19 Won't Immediately Calm Cartel Violence, If At All

Hi Mak, The Rand study says its researchers could not find evidence to back the longstanding claim that marijuana accounts for 60% of cartels' revenues. The Rand Study suggests the figure may be based on marijuana consumption estimates three times greater than what they are. The U.S. Office of National Drug Control Policy first published the 60% figure in 2006. However, the current ONDCP Director, Gil Kerlikowske, says the figure is incorrect.
Check out Chapter 5 of the Rand Study: http://bit.ly/cggrLE
