TJ: Meth Becomes the Most Prominent Drug on the Baja Border

Posted by El Wachito republished from ZETA

Written by Ines Garcia Ramos
Friday, 9 September 2016

In the region between Tijuana-San Diego, meth has position itself as the most commercialized, trafficked and consume drug. In the last 10 months, American law enforcement agencies have confiscated more than 9 tons of meth at the border. Small doses of meth have also become the most common drug that has been found in the streets of Baja California.

Its early in the morning. From American soil, along the border region that is patrolled by the Border Patrol one can hear songs from Vicente Fernandez and rooster crows coming out of houses that are made of wood in Tijuana. There is almost one kilometer that separates the houses and the border patrol guard post, however not even the fence that divides the United States from Mexico can't stop the folk music nor the sound of the birds which create a special vibe along the border of San Diego, California. Early in the morning, some residents from la Colonia Libertad, which is located east from the San Ysidro border crossing, start to carefully observe border patrol officers through binoculars. A border patrol agent explained to a ZETA correspondent that this is a common practice. The idea is to locate an access point or a moment of distraction by the border patrol in order to warn immigrants who are trying to cross the border illegally or drug traffickers. Once the drugs make its way into the border, its value increases significantly. For example, the cost of one pound can go up to 10 thousand  dollars. In the case of cocaine, a pound exceeds 12 thousand dollars.


Trafficking methods vary. Marihuana is usually not trafficked through ports of entry because of its strong odor and volume, while synthetic drugs such as meth and cocaine are being hidden in secret compartments such as gas tanks and glove compartments. An old piece of cloth with oxidized metal spikes which go through one the extremes and is wrapped around with ropes, is one the many tools that traffickers used and have been recently found by border patrol agents in one of their most recent patrols. The agents claim that this tool is used to hook it to the top of the fence and then use it to climb it and jump from it. Some of them use it just to cross the border, however others, use it to carry drugs across the border.


From October of 2015 to August of 2016, the Border Patrol San Diego Sector has confiscated almost a ton of meth. 928 kilograms to be exact. To this quantity we must add the 8 tons 295 thousand kilograms of meth that has been confiscated by the Customs and Border Protection(CBP) in the San Ysidro port of entry, Otay, Tecate, Calexico and Andrade, as well as ports and airports of the California border which were confiscated from October 2015 to July of 2015.
                       
 

Two months away to the end of the current fiscal year and we are already exceeding the 7 tons 951 kilos that were confiscated in 2015 by custom agents. This quantities are impressive and according to US custom officials their value in the streets exceed 20 million dollars.

If we divide the quantity of confiscated meth by the quantity of a small dose, than we can conclude that we have confiscated 9 million doses in less than a year which means that there is a tremendous demand for meth.

    4. 5:15 Obscenity is when somebody gets paid and fails to do their job like the "presidentes" the US selects for the mexicans.
      --epn speaks decently in public, while in private he likes to say: "chingada madre!" ALL THE TIME,
      like most mexican politicians...
      --Obscenity is when your government practices state sponsored terrorism and exploits the people with slave wages, and steals the budget for education and health care, and sells away the people's patrimony for peanuts to please the foreign masters that selected them to "govern mexico"...
      --Bottom line, La Mencha wins

    5. La mencha would make things better from a govt position? Lol

      Tell you what, what they need to do is create some sort of university degree for those politicians, lawyers don't go to trials before getting theirs. Why should politicians take govt positions without it? That's why they keep messimg everything up...

    6. 5:45 epn bought his degree and hisasters in public administration, his secretaries and ministers went to foreign universities and all they learned there was to kiss the ass of the president in turn, epn was selected on th basis of his corruption, his murdering record, his wife's murder, his state sponsored terrorism, his robbing the biggest narcos and his cuentas chuecas, the US selected epn...

  4. How do you destroy a world superpower ? Easy. Just flood its streets with drugs. The fact that other countries have legalized doesn't mean shit 2 the United States of America. We didn't become a superpower because of drugs. We who are not as others volunteered 2 fight 2 the death 4 our way of life. Use your freedom wisely. Because the end result of so many addicts and higher crime will only be stricter laws. El Sol Perdido

  5. I've been working in San Diego since January . I'm living in Chula Vista and yes there are meth heads all over the place I can almost pin point them out, I worked for years in Pascagoula Mississippi which another place filled with meth addicts. Meth is cheaper here in San Diego compared to the gulf coast that's for sure

    1. On the TJ side I have seen where the meth houses are. Run down places where the local people go in and shoot up. The police all know where it is as well as the public. The police do not bother them as it is a waste of their time. No mordida to be made and who wants to mess with filthy meth heads that smell, have not bathed and do not care about anything but their next fix. Here in Chihuahua they sell their trinkets and beg for money st the traffic lights for their next shot. they can be very aggressive at times when they are begging. It is a North American epidemic.

Regardless I couldn't possibly live here in SD all my life n that's cuz I like TJ a lot but SD isn't for me

  6. That shit will drive people nuts . If the average person realized whats going on in the average meth heads mind , he would be afraid . I have seen the meth monster and it is ugly . Ive been pretty sure that's what the fuckers in mexico are on . The ones that pass a group of kids and spray them all with machine gun fire because theyre out to get one of them . This shit is bad bad bad . Makes me want to go into the drug rehab business because this shit will drive them in . The upside is - the ones that don't burn out completely and look for help , often do get clean

    1. The "rehab business" is good only when and because the government subsidizes it, or forces people to use the services instead of going to jail, you also need a degree in "rehabilitation arts", but the money is in hooking up with connections up and down the trade chain, for reals, that why rehab centers get all shot up, they steal customers one too many by one too many at a time.

    2. 3:46 Never heard of a rehab being shot up in the usa . Just Mexico . Back when I first worked for a rehab . A counselor had to have what was called CADAC which stands for certified alcohol and drug abuse councilor . I think those were grandfathered in when they changed it to LCDC which is licensed chemical dependency councilor . Of coarse there is much more entailed in running the facility and billing third party . I would have no fear of being shot up . Not in my area . Have no intention of working for a rehab anymore . Just being sarcastic because the meth monster will drive them in .

    2. Coke is for rich people, meth is for the lowlifes scraping change together to get there fix. One gives you a 20 minute numbing and cost more than the other thats only 1/3 of the price and gives you a longer lasting effect.

  9. Chapo has been pushing meth since the 90's. The drug doesn't rely on the producers than it does to the consumers. Better high and longer lasting than coke. C'mon meth is the future and the producers know this. Meth been around for a while but its just started being used more than before.

    6. 4:31 I have a patient who intermittently does meth. I wouldn't have guessed it, but I haven't seen her while she is actively using, only after she's been clean about a week (comes to see me about every 3 months). I always thought the people had sores on their faces and bad teeth, but this lady, although she's quite thin, looks relatively ordinary.

    7. The big drug money is not on the people with sores and bad teeth, the big bucks come from the professionals, scientists, judges, lawyers, doctors, professors, pooliticians, artistas that nobody imagines, they got the money to spend.

  12. @9:25 im not a smuggler or in the biz at all but id guess they can make a lb of meth for super cheap using the chemicals from china.. again. I have no idea on pricing but lets say they can produce a key of meth for 500$ (probably high) and sell it in the us for 15k$-
    A key of coke they would have to pay a columbian distributor lets say 8k$- transporting that coke to mexico, then to the us, is a lot harder and more expensive then just making super lab mass quantity meth and shipping north. The mexicans have total control of meth, with cocaine they dont. They can cut out the middle, and that extra money is theirs.. my guess

    1. you are correct and on the buying end users usually buy what is cheaper. Maybe rich folk have the money for good coke but your average meth user is middle class or low income and it is everywhere = happy Americans( black,brown,white,green). Loosers

    2. With meth you can also work 12 or 16 hours a day easier, that helps choose and be productive for less money, keep wages low and lower, I seen guys working for 3 dollars in the morning and 3 on the evening, and maybe a hot dog at noon, keeps them in shape, trim and fit.

  14. I have lived off and on the streets of Cali since 1992, and the meth took over. Young adults get kicked out of parents house, CPS takes the kids, Mom goes bonkers, gets turned on to meth in the street and in a little while hanging out in the peanut gallery.
    Everyone is on the shit, and people are tired of the meth/homeless/zombies so I get treated like trash and arrested for being on meth by a rookie sherrif, and I've never tried it!
    This shit is free out west as long as you share when you got.
    This is what came of the revolution? Sad.

  15. Meth aint no joke..especially the stuff from mex..that stuff is stronger than the stuff they can make here in the us..thats the reason the sicarios are all killing over there..they're all high as hell on ice..it takes nothing for a tweaker to kill..if you know of someone that starts usingmeth i suggest you try to get them off asap and if you see them at the point of bo return i suggest you stay as far away from them as possible i know it sounds messed up but trust me tweakers dont think twice about stuff. Theyll steal, kill do anything because their brain is fried..people say cocaine is one helluva a drug..well i say it gots nothing on meth...ive had some good coke strait from the key..and i bet itd never get close to being high on meth...cokes bad too tho..dont do it..lol

    1. Im a recovering addict from both coke and meth and i can say both drugs suck. I'd have to say coke does way worse pychologically, itll keep you in a way worse place than ice. Meth just worse physically sucks you up putting you in a zombie trance state of being.

    2. coke doesnt get you high at all it simply is a stimulant. It gives you lots of energy for a real short period of time. Coke is a terrible recreation drug imo, the high sucks..its more paranoia than anything.

  16. But also the reason the cartels started making it is cause they seen that americans like that stuff..especially white people for some reason...im not being racist..just stating a fact...but they also started making it to give ot to the sicarios...so much more easier to make them kill...michocan was flooded with ice..maybe still is...and the sicarios were killing kids innocent with no regard..im sure ice had a big big play on that one...dont do meth ever! Its nasty...buncha chemicals...gross

  17. @4:31 i thought the same thing about there being no meth in chicago.. other then "boys town" , where apparently they like to do meth and pound each others asses out all night, id never heard of it being around here either.. But i was just talking to an asian guy from north chicago who says theres lots of meth by where he lives , and in the asian community in general.. i knew the asians liked it, but i also heard the gangbangers dont want meth in chicago because it would cut their profits from crack/cocaine.. idk if thats true, but ive yet to see or hear of anyone even having small quantities of meth.. there has been some busts on the highways around the area but who knows where that stuff was going too. Ive also seen some drug shows where theyve made huge meth busts in new jersey (50+ keys) of straight glass.. who knows, its around, you probably just havent seen it yet

  18. My wife and I have some friends here in Chihuahua City. The husband is a pharmacist. They make an OK living for Mexico by by no means rich according to American standards, and where pharmacists make 6 figure incomes. Just overnight they became wealthy, bought an expensive home in a secured neighborhood, lot's of outdoor motor toys, and luxury cars. The only thing we can think of is that they are supplying chemicals to make drugs. We have tried to stay away from them because it is possible that if another trafficker comes after them we do not want to become innocent victims. Just being in a party or in a bar can get you killed if a group comes in to eliminate their competition. Best to be safe and stay away from these people when something does not add up.
