Since the mid-1990s, Mexican criminals have been growing marijuana in our national forests. In recent years these operations have spread to at least 20 states and 67 national forests as well as private land. We are still a sovereign nation, are we not? If that's correct it begs the question, why have our national parks been surrendered by our government to Mexican drug traffickers?
An area of 3,500 acres in southern Arizona has been closed to U.S. citizens because of the dangers posed by drug smugglers. We can conclude from this that it is no longer safe for Americans to visit any national park lest they inadvertently wander into a pot-growing operation guarded by well-armed drug traffickers who won't hesitate to kill to protect their merchandise.
