Crime doesn't pay?

£61m a day profit puts Mafia on a par with Fiat

The Mafia made £61 million a day last year in Italy through protection rackets, bribes and illegal money lending, according to a new report.
The new turnover - which excludes income from drugs and gun-running - puts the Mafia on a par with Fiat and Enel, two of the country's largest companies.
The criminal empire earns five times as much as Telecom Italia, the state telephone monopoly.

Rumour has it that the largest cash crop in Canada is pot. I guess crime ~does~ pay...

You're kidding? Of course, the bottom would fall out of the market if cannabis were legalised in all countries!
