Seems like the US would welcome this as a majority of the cannabis would probably never make it to the US, but get sold in neighboring countries. Cannabis is much less of a problem IMO.

This won't last long. The CIA doesn't make nearly as much on cannabis as it does on coc aine and heroin, so they'll set these farmers right soon enough.
