Originally modeled on the RL Cartel of northern Mexico, is now a Private, underground family built around the SL activities of a group gathered by Darko & Paris Cellardoor in SL's first year.
Cartel is known for thier parties which originally started at Darko & Paris home in DaBoom. As the parties grew in size, they contracted Juro Kothari to build a new club unlike any seen in SL: The Cannabis Cathedral. Construction was underway, but before completion, the Cartel was moved to Deimos along with the Cathedral.
Today the Cartel comprises many talented people, as well as a close knit community feel, all of which helps keep the Cartel together.
