Someone Has To Keep Up With the Pot Demand From HISD Teachers
So the U.S. Department of Justice's newest National Drug Threat Assessment, released today, shouldn't be a surprise when it reports that Asian gangs have greatly increased their production of indoor-grown pot in the Houston area.
"Asian DTOs [Drug Trafficking Organizations] expanded their indoor cannabis cultivation operations in 2007 to new areas including Cleveland, Denver, Houston, and Los Angeles," a summary of the report says." Expansion of indoor cannabis cultivation operations will most likely continue in 2009."
Most of the indoor-growing by Asian gangs had been limited to the West Coast and, to some degree, New England, the summary says.
The report also notes that marijuana-cultivating operations in Mexico are moving ever closer to the US border.
Hey, you go where the demand is. And right now, it appears to be in HISD teachers' lounges.
