Wanted: Local drug trafficker with ties to Joaquin 'Chapo' Guzman
ICE seeks leader of a drug-trafficking group that smuggled cocaine, marijuana through El Paso

EL PASO, Texas - U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) special agents are seeking a top leader of a large cell of the Joaquin 'Chapo' Guzman drug-trafficking network that smuggled multi-ton shipments of cocaine and marijuana through here.
Jose Jaime Arroyos-Carrillo, 51, a convicted drug dealer, and two of his associates are believed to have worked for Guzman, Mexico's top drug kingpin and head of the Sinaloa Cartel. They are named in a 29-count indictment that an El Paso federal grand jury handed up in November 2006.
All three were indicted on the following charges: conspiracy to import a controlled substance, conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance, importing a controlled substance, possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, conspiracy to launder monetary instruments and bulk cash smuggling.
Arroyos-Carrillo may currently be in hiding in Chihuahua, Mexico. His associates, Isidro Gomez-Arpero and Juan Samaniego were arrested in 2006 in Mexico, and extradited to the United States last year. On Aug. 14, 2008, U.S. District Court Judge Kathleen Cardone sentenced one of the masterminds of the organization, Gomez-Arpero, to 230 months (more than 19 years) in federal prison, and Juan Samaniego to 210 months (17˝ years). The ICE investigation revealed that the Gomez organization, which was based in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, at one time was a large cell of the Guzman international drug-trafficking organization, judging by the large narcotics shipments it smuggled every week through El Paso.

Thus we get at the root of the drug problem: The United States of America is the planet's largest market for illicit drugs.

And as a native son of El Paso, I can tell you that the drug trade is so entrenched in this region (and the world) that no amount of law enforcement will ever truly eradicate its existence. Its already a lost war.

This is true, it is also true that it is illegal to possess. Do you think it is ok to do either? Sell or purchase?

Just checkin in.

I really don't care what people do, you wanna do drugs? Do them then. No one's forcing you to buy the drugs.

Actually, in California it is not illegal to possess marijuana if you have a club card. I also know some Mexicans who put it in Alchohol and its said to ease tension on muscles and nerves. (applied directly to the skin)

I think they should have legalized marijuana a long time ago. I don't smoke it, but did a long time ago. It is none of my business what adults do, but we have a huge drug problem in the U.S. and Meth is a horrible drug from what I have seen on TV. I would not sell or purchase.
