How do the powerful Mexican drug cartel leaders spend their copious amounts of illegally-obtained cash? The same way American rappers do: by buying ridiculous bling. Earlier this week, the Mexican government actioned off (or tried to, at least) several jewelry items to help fund their hopeless war on drugs. Amongst the items up for bidding were a jewel-encrusted medallion depicting the Virgen of Guadalupe ($10,000) and a $240,000 Audemars Piguet 18-carat gold watch.
