Drugs accumulate on the border: in desperation the Sinaloa Cartel improvises

The health emergency due to COVID-19 has caused a decrease in traffic between Mexico and the United States.

The drug trafficking business is experiencing difficult times: the coronavirus has redoubled controls at border points. It has also reduced air traffic to a minimum.
For this reason, drug traffickers have had to find alternatives that alleviate the pressure that the pandemic has produced. In Mexico, despair has prompted the Sinaloa Cartel - one of the most powerful structures in Mexico - to hire "mules” or American smugglers.

A drug dealer who operates for people from Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada revealed to the Rio Doce journalist, Miguel Ángel Vega, that due to the temporary closure of the San Ysidro or Calexico sentry box, only US citizens can enter and leave the country.

"As gringos cross the merchandise, they charge more, and now that less (drug) is crossed and there is a shortage, the price increased, because it is more expensive to send the drug, and because the second immigration inspection in Indio has become tougher," he said.

Faced with the difficulties of drug trafficking, the Sinaloa organization has encountered increased police surveillance on the border. “No one is crossing anything right now."

Some, for example, mota we are going to have to throw away because it has been drying for almost three months and it is stored there, and if it is not sold soon it will spoil. The case of Chiva (very low-quality heroin) is different because it can last a long time and nothing happens, but mota does not,” said the narco.

Patty Hartman, a DEA spokeswoman in Washington, said that trafficking has not stopped, but has hampered the ability of cartels to move drugs to the United States, causing accumulation of illicit drugs on both sides of the border.

Last March, it was reported that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the supply chain became complex. This vulnerability caused the Sinaloa Cartel to increase methamphetamine prices. On the orders of Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada, the crystal went from 2,500 to 15,000 pesos.

A "cook" allied with the criminal group told Río Doce that the instructions were received through a WhatsApp message that read "If you don't obey, pay attention to the consequences."


Although chefs typically have a one-month supply of chemicals on hand, they had difficulty replenishing stocks in those days.

"Prices are very high right now. Due to the coronavirus, there is very little distribution or import from China to Mexico City. It is difficult to obtain chemicals. You can get them, but the prices are going up for everyone,” explained one cook.
Before the world crisis, a kilogram of fentanyl was sold wholesale to 870,000 pesos. Currently, it costs up to 1,000,000 pesos.

Drug cooks speculated that the methamphetamine price ordered by "El Mayo" had more to do with opportunism than with chemical shortages. They claimed that as methamphetamine production has increased, competition from rivals has increased and profit margins have decreased.

Mexican cartels have dominated the crystalline methamphetamine trade, especially since the mid-2010s, when the United States began restricting the sale of cold medications, used to make methamphetamine in local laboratories.

This has also stimulated Mexican drug traffickers to decrease heroin production. Cartels have found it much more lucrative to manufacture synthetic drugs as it can be produced year-round with chemicals that, until recently, were cheap and readily available.

Heroin, by contrast, requires huge poppy fields, which can only be seasonally harvested by farmers.

  2. There are very few gringos involved in actually taking drugs across the US border what you do have is many Mexican-American US citizens who are involved it's also a myth that the US border is shut down only to US citizens can cross resident aliens people that green cards essential workers all can cross and they do everyday by the thousands

    1. I agree, very few gringos. Maybe a few, who have been in the pinta, could be "trusted", but otherwise, no. There is no Equal Opportunity Bureau for gringos to complain to on this.
      On the other hand, when things back up, some product will be unloaded locally, thus increasing the plague in the border cities. In the Drug war, everybody looses!

  3. The American drug organizations might just make their own drugs. If Mexican drugs continue to get more expensive. From to $2,500 to $15,000 is a lot.

  5. You can keep your Mexican Mota, nasty, Northern Cal bud 10 times better and fresh. Meth is for the middle class, Heroin and Coke are Hollywood and richman drug of choice. By the way, the general public is fukin dead broke, most are behind bills and getting evicted, cold turkey for many. Truth

    1. If it is grown outside, it is Grade B. Some Greenhouse weed can be B+. Unless grown indoors, in good media, hydroponic or aeroponic it's always grade B or less. Yes,I'm a snob. Been growing indoors for 25+ yrs. Own my own legal cannabis store in Wa. So, ya.....I know what I'm talking about. Mexico has great drugs, but the crummiest pot. JMO

  6. Accurate post, y si ay ordenes de los chapitos que no se puede vender una libra de crystal menos de 10mil pesos y si sta despacio el movimiento orita en la frontera. Btw there is no second inspection in Indio, only have a border patrol station in Indio and in Palm Springs,CA now. Once you cross Mexicali there is a second immigration checkpoint in borrego springs(by the salton sea) before getting to Indio which is a CDS hub. The whole Coachella Valley is a CDS hub.

    1. Entonces no tenia precio el cristal si ahorita lo pusieron en 10mil pesos= +/-$500 la libra, más el flete, la cruzada, el distribuidor y luego el que la hace onzas, medias, cuartas y ochos. 1:27 dice que lbs anda entre 1.5 a 3k pero en que que lugar? Ganando $500xlb para poder alivianarte tienes que mover un chingo y te expones a más tiempo cuando te agarren los manotas o pones dedo como mariquita.

    2. No mamen que careros! Que culpa tiene la gente que los del CJNG les quitaron el puerto de colima? Y de que les sirvio su triangulo cagado? En el puerto de colima nunca va a faltar quimicos de asia para aser las drogas sinteticas! Por eso el cjng no a suvido precios! Deverian ir los del cds a quitarselo, ooo perdon lla lo intentaron y regresaron con las patas por delante o terminaron plantados o de comida de animales en algun valdio abandonado, por eso nadie del cds kiere ir a pelearle ninguna plaza al cjng y prefieren pelear entre ellos asi tienen mas chansa de seguir vivos

    3. Antes covid la libra estaba en 6-7mil pesos en mexicali jaja. Ganas mas de $500usd y MAS si trais tu propio lavatorio. $1.5- 3k la libra en area de riverside,los angeles y tmb en coachella. La cosa es mandarlos mas pa arriba como para Bakersfield o Fresno o otro estado onde va subir el precio de la libra para ser mas ganancias. Y eso de acerlo en onzas, medias, cuartas, Ochos y gramos es el pedo de la persona que va comprar las libras para revender a los drogadictos que lo usan.. Yo recuerdo cuando la libra de crystal andaba en los 13k-17k USD.

    4. Hace 9 años más o menos estaba a ese precio la libra y ni tan buena por falta de la base. Antes de Covid todos tenían y te la soltaban y poreso muchos vale madres no pagaban porque se hiban con otra conecta. No tiene sentido ir hasta Indio o Riverside para pagar el mismo precio que LA y es muy poca la diferencia de precios entre Bakersfield a Fresno, si acaso $100 por paquete y menos si son más pero aquí en el valle central muchos ya reciben clavos directos. Tienes que subirla para arriba para ganarle más. Cómo dije $500 de ganancia por libra ni aunque fueran $1000, si no te puedes salir hasta que truenes el gobierno, abogados y sanchos van a disponer de tu dinero jajajaja. En fin cada quien hace lo que piensa que le conviene y nadie sabe para quien trabaja

Como digo el dinero esta en USA. y en otros países tmb.

  7. how’s this affecting the big cartels in the border economícally? Also this is most likely why Mexico is heating up and murders have sky rocketed. Not enough money for everyone and business is down and the big bosses will survive the ones at the bottoms and middle are causing the chaos trying to make up what they’ve been losing.

    4. @10pm I really doubt it's less than a 8 in Colima and 8-10 in other parts of Mexico, en cualquier ciudad fronteriza la fina anda en no menos de 15. No se le gana tanto al jale y menos en un pason de mano pero cada quien

  10. hypothetically speaking. just role play. yea they tried raising the prices for crystal. and pluggs started using other distributers so who ever was doing that went back down. truth is they are just sitting on merchandice because the gringos americans are not buying. n9 ones working. starting may according to my plug.most.american house holds started recieving unempyment and stimulus checks which helped stimulate.the drug economy.i really havnt seen no differnce i do t mess with heroin or fetanyl so i cant sp3ak about that. puro cristalito dl pu3rto de lazaro cardenas 🤕😷😧😈 im jus5 joking i dont fool arounx like that holmes. but if i still did 😉😉 i would be payin 80 bucks for a bola. but as for weed. i do t think cartel wuld throw that away. or people would care. i remwmber in middle and high school dried up stress that was all we could afford and available amd we still smoked. . . No I am not promoting drug use on the contrary I advise everyone to say no to drugs just think of me as McGruff the drug and crime fighting dog. And this goes out to all you delusional sicarios like sicario006 , un caballero de jalisco and scottish zeta and that other taquashe. "weed is for drug addicts , losers and sluts. it makes you slow, stupid and it crushes your drdreamsems.
