United States and Mexico agree to combat heroin and fentanyl consumption

Translated by Otis B Fly-Wheel for Borderland Beat from a Milenio article

Subject Matter: Heroin and Fetanyl consumption in both countries
Recommendation: No prior subject matter knowledge required

During her visit to the United States, the head of the PGR, Arely Gomez, agreed to create a bi-national group to lower the consumption of heroin and fentanyl in both countries.

Reporter: Ruben Mosso
Mexico and the united States agreed the formation of a bi-national group to confront the problem that is occasioning both countries, the consumption of heroin and fentanyl, drugs that have been the cause of many deaths.

The accord was made between the Prosecutor General of the Republic, Arely Gomez Gonzalez, during a working visit she made to Washington, United States.

The bi-national group will be headed in Mexico by the Prosecutor General of the Republic.



"t is a topic that affect all in Mexico and the United States, through all the deaths that we have had of people consuming heroin or fentanyl, its a very grave situation, but its nothing more than one can do to tackle it in a shared manner", said the Prosecutor.

Fentanyl is an opiate used in the treatment of pain for people with cancer, however its consumption has elevated in the American Union and various people have died of overdoses, already it has been said that it is 50 times more potent than heroin.

According to information from the DEA, the illicit use of the pharmaceutical fentanyl started in the middle of the decade of the 70's in the medical community and since has been a problem for the United States.

Until now there have been 12 types of fentanyl that have been produced in clandestine form, and form part of drug trafficking. The biological effects of fentanyl are almost similar to that of heroin, with the exception that it can be hundreds of times more potent.

Fentanyl is the drug most used by the administration intravenously, but like heroin, but it can also be inhaled, said the DEA.

The anti-drug agency said that this pharmaceutical is produced by the Mexican cartels in laboratories that Federal forces have managed to dismantle.

  1. Bullshit, when the US government gets involved in war, their private war managers are sure to make a killing, and lose the war, to make hundreds of billions of dollars...
    I mean, ya valió madre la "guerra contra la heroina y el fentanyl"

    1. This is the problem with our rhetoric surrounding drugs. The war on drugs is a misnomer. Drugs are a public health issue, when you discuss drug policy in the frame of a war, you simply create more societal division and narco violence.

      I love when people like you claim the American government is the problem and not the failed narco-state that is contemporary Mexico. If you think America is corrupt, look across our southern border where the real corruption, violence, and brutality resides. Mexicans get really tired of spoiled North Americans complaining about violence and corruption as Mexican society crumbles under the pressure of the narcotraficantes.

    2. Epn has accrued a new debt of 1 500 000 000 .00 millones de pesos, or about 75 billion dollars for mexico, in two years, and mexico has nothing to show for it/caballero x, youtube.
      Epn will say it is all a vile lie, and a cowardly statement, while the US vigilantly watches over the banana republic, with "no comment" comments...
      --meanwhile drug trafficking and the war on drugs keep us real busy with the BS...

  2. and what I'd like to know is how much of our tax money is being paid to line the pockets of the Mexican politicians. They left that part out. I'm sure Mexico is not cooperating fully or cooperating at all without more of our money.

    1. That's a great question 9:14 and even if the are not giving cash but guns how many are sold illegally for cash and end up in some Politian or government's personal pocket=same thing or guns that are used against the Mexican citizens to arm the thugs when committing extortions or kidnappings against them?

    2. 7:38 politicians sell out to lobbyists for about 10% but the NRA takes their cut from there, 5he rest is all private property of some magnate weapons trafficker that has the weapons delivered now from china or sells franchise permits for $$$ like H&K, the bulk of the drug money ends up on banks too, mexican drug traffickers do not get to keep all the money, unless they want to end in prison por rateros.

    3. Only thing those mexican politicians are cooperating with is their own pockets, getting billions of dollars from the us, plus the other billions from drug traficking they get. When it's time to show some work they go after one small group of dumb thugs. But before that happens they already created two more. How you like your madcow. LOL

  3. I spend anywhere between 60 - 180 dollars on heroin a day. I'm lucky to have a good enough paying job to support my habit, otherwise I'd probably be in jail for stealing car batteries or some other nonsense.

    Heroin is blowing up in America it's everywhere.

I have known countless that have .Jails institutions and death . Your next stop will probably be jail or a O D . Then there are always the egotistical dumb fucks that are "different, it wont happen to me" . Aint that what you thought before you got addicted ? Your standing right in line to experience ALL the classic experiences of the typical heroin addict . You made think you are unique but you are just one of the herd . You can turn it around though . Its all on you . get some help .

    7. Street persons sell just enough for their hits, spend their earnings on themselves, maybe 30 dollars a day, what kind of a pendejo spends more than $100.00 usd a day on H?

  7. It nearly sounds that there is a possibility for US to re-open DEA offices on Mexican soil again.

    Is there any really strong bonds between EPN administration and US administration that could make it happen? Or maybe more US involvement on the constant chase of top-narcos within and alongside Mexican forces? What do you all think is possible to this agreement? /Regards

    1. I thought that was a synthetic drug called krokodile or something like that. Fentanyl was produced by a pharmaceutical company in USA. It's now being a synthetically produced in Sinaloa. H is produced in Mexico, Afghanistan, and Colombia. Possibly elsewhere.

      Delete
    2. Mexico is now 3rd in production 2nd is either burmha/myanmar or Afghanistan can remember order but those are the primary producers there is a golden triangle in southeast Asia as well conduit for China white not bth or world wide war on terror brown powder from trashcanistan but if they can synthesize fentanyl I'm fairly certain the can finish the refining steps to make bth #2 or #3 type powder then again I may be out of date on my info it's what I know as the facts its no coincidence that Purdue pharma,watson or even malinkrodt are throwing just as much currency at the aforementioned nations they of course supply most of the worlds kappa and mu receptor stimulants bottom line the mota is not moving due to new marijuana laws quality of pot is about the only place dto can't compete so you mix that with alphabet soup hammer on rx opiates illicit and otherwise farmers planting poppies not mota 100$ USD per unit to 25$ USD per unit I can't fault them so the flood of the cheap boi and ice will continue until the market "settles" im willing to bet green money some orginazations pulled as much as 50% annual from mexi brick mostly Midwest ok tex ak etc also fits nicely with reasoning to the hyper violence and increased pisos and other non narcotic distribution activity and I'm officially rambling sorry admin been a follower for long time of these things

  11. Bullshit! The U.S. and Mexico only say shit like this for show. The CDS still has el Mayo and maybe even el Azul and even Caro as well as Chapos kids at large all while both governments agree that this cartel is the largest supplier of heroin and meth in both countries. Up to 70 percent or more of these drugs are supplied by this cartel they say so until some if not most of these characters are at large all this is lame ass talk meant to guarantee government funds and job security for DEA, CIA and even the Mexican government in their so called "war on drugs".

  13. I don't know why they don't allow the cartels to make more fentanyl if the junkies are dying? This solves the problem at a microeconomic level. Less junkies and less over dosing will save a lot of tax payer dollars.Heroin is very expensive and one of the most addictive drugs to quit.Let the junkies die and then the cartels will have less customers.Less customers and price would go up and less people would be prone to start using...No one on earth can control anybody,therefore if you start doing Heroin,and you become a junkie,the only one to blame is yourself.....

      @6:59 pray that you are never in their position, because I have found more than a few of those grieving parents, some are police officers, captains, lieutenants and chiefs, nobody is safe from drugs, specially the biggest of the big mouths

    WTF what an asshole! Give those addicts legal and clean drugs and there will be no more crime! Meaning there will be no burden on innocent people and those who are not stupid enough to try these fucked up things.

Mexican government like money for programs . The democrats like to spend money . Now trump has Clinton saying "review NAFTA . Probably wont amount to a hill of beans .

  22. This is why cooperation between Mexico and los EU is important. Scary election cycle right now. One pendejo wants to build a wall, and people don't trust the other dishonest pendeja. The one thing that they both have in common, is that both missing the point by not addressing the problem of consumption. They ain't saying much about the border, which proves that they're disconnected. Los EU needs to clean their casa to make things better elsewhere. These idiots that are running just don't get it.

    2. As long as you have demand and consumption, the business will keep surviving. Every year, the U.S. expands the Foreign Drug Kingpin Act, and the business manages to survive. Regulating or attacking the money thru banks only means that they'll find other ways to invest it under the table. Wake up man. It's a consumption and demand problem. Until we find ways to limit that, this isn't going to go away. It's sad, but it's the truth. We need to address the bigger problem, not symptoms of the problem.
