  1. "Colorado legal marijuana laws have expanded the presence of the cartels."

    Except, there is zero evidence for this in that GOP-associated article. The entire premise is absurd, given that legalization of pot will do more to ruin the viability of drug cartels than half a century of the so-called "War on Drugs". Unless, of course, that everything we know about economic models is completely false.
