Not to mention a buttload of militia groups who are beyond anxious to engage with someone.

The Border Patrols hands are not tied any longer! I am quite sure their new President has given them full permission to shoot back if they are being shot at!
I am also pretty sure there are plenty of military personnel who would love to be sent to the border and take out any cartel filth crossing the border to harm Americans.

If Mexico's former foreign minister is being truthful, then the opposition to tighter border security is all about the black market money from exporting illegal drugs and immigrants. Their economy is in danger if they can't keep up the black market trade to the U.S. through a porous border guarded by agents with their hands tied or who are on the take.
IMHO Canada will not normalise MJ use....and Mexico will jack up their focus up North where Canadians are still feeding their kids to the connections to the Intl.hard drug market by keeping MJ criminalised .
While the legislation is expected to be introduced in spring 2017, sales for recreational use will probably not commence until January 2018 according to Canada's Parliamentary Budget Officer. Subsequently, the substance will remain controlled. Some news reporters predict it will be sold through Provincial liquor stores, although a recent Forum poll indicates that 60 percent of Canadians would prefer to see it sold in pharmacies where medical cannabis is already being sold. Some news sources suggest that direct mail-order sales by growers might be allowed with specific regulations over this process to prevent sales to minors. During the federal election campaign, the Liberals (who subsequently formed the new federal government) had promised "new, stronger laws" against sales to minors, driving while impaired and sales through channels not specifically authorized to do so.
