Mexico grapples with drug addiction - Los Angeles Times

Quote:
Mexican leaders, who for many years have pointed an accusing finger toward the United States when talking about drug use, now acknowledge their nation's own problem.

"It is clear to everyone that our nation has stopped being a transit country for drugs going to the United States and become an important market as well," Atty. Gen. Eduardo Medina Mora said recently. "We are experiencing a phenomenon of greater drug supplies in the streets, at relatively accessible prices."
Quote:
Experts say potent drugs, such as cocaine, have become affordable for Mexicans of modest means. Prices have fallen as domestic supplies have risen, in part because of U.S. efforts to tighten border security since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
It's about damned time that the Mexican government acknowledge its own society's problems. Let's ensure that border security increases even more in order to protect our society and force the Mexican government to do more for theirs.

How could increased Border Patrol lead to increased Mexican drug use??>This makes no sense. Increased Canadian Border Patrol? That's where the terrorists come in at.

It makes a lot of sense: apparently; the efforts to close/lock our southern border are starting to bite down------------hard. Much to the chagrin of the illegal border crossers------------including the drug cartels.

Just that the Zetas et al still 'need' to sell their dope; and since the USA is all but sealed off----------the local yokels in Mexico are now their customers.
