As with illegal immigration, Mexican drug trafficking is a problem that the Mexican government really does not want to end. There is simply too much money to be made as that money is sent back to Mexico to prop up their corrupt government. These maps are from latest report of the U.S. Department of Justice - National Drug Intelligence Center
All images below can seen in a larger format by clicking on them.
From the report:


The National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC) has prepared this Situation Report to illustrate the principal cities/states in which Mexican drug trafficking organizations (DTOs) operate within the United States. This document was prepared using law enforcement reporting available to NDIC as of April 9, 2008; it updates information regarding Mexican DTOs set forth in the National Drug Threat Assessment 2007.
Mexican DTOs are the most pervasive organizational threat to the United States. They are active in every region of the country and dominate the illicit drug trade in every area except the Northeast. Mexican DTOs are expanding their operations in the Northeast and have developed cooperative relationships with DTOs in that area in order to gain a larger share of the northeastern drug market.
