Warning on Possible Pot Growers Called Profiling

"A federal warning to beware of campers in national forests who eat tortillas, drink Tecate beer and play Spanish music because they could be armed marijuana growers is racial profiling, an advocate for Hispanic rights said Friday."

"Forest Service officials said they believe illegal immigrants are being brought to Colorado by Latin American drug cartels for mass cultivation of marijuana."

"'That's discriminatory, and it puts Hispanic campers in danger,' said Polly Baca, co-chairwoman of the Colorado Latino Forum."
