If this spreads to the whole country it’ll be the end of the cartels. Now let’s hope they can keep the Commies out of it.

Doubtful. Yearly revenues from illegal drug exports to the US were estimated at around $14B.¹ For comparison, Mexico's oil exports in 2010 totaled around $36B.²

Both the Mexican government and the cartels will see to it that illegal drugs keep coming. They can't afford not to.
