Federal officials are "putting a stranglehold on the cartels' ability to smuggle drugs into the United States," said William R. Sherman, acting special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration in San Diego. "Seizing close to 50 tons of marijuana in one month denies the cartels the financial means to continue their operations."

The stranglehold may be hurting the cartels' finances, but apparently not their audacity -- the warehouse on the Mexican side of the border was on the same block as a federal police station, according to The Associated Press.
