  1. It is more effective if they targeted the labs that are making synthetic work instead of this
    I am thinking these have not bribed the proper figures

  2. Este pueblo tiene fama por todo mi Sinaloa porque nos hechan la culpa que aqui sembramos la goma...Solo les quiero aclarar que aqui sembramos de todo y si se enojan por eso pues que se enojen ni modo...

    1. Chalino, great song.

    2. Puro Sinaloa y Arriba Chalino Sanchez

  3. word out in the sierra is that nobody wants to buy/move opium gum anymore prices have dropped to as low as 5000 pesos a kilo

  4. The hunt is on for Guano

  5. Menores and gauno snitchn on each other

  6. Sinaloa Been making millones on heroin

    1. Billions Pendejo!

    2. The poppy fields would be easy to see with all those drones and spy planes, but nooo, they ain't no poppy fields nowhere to be seen, unless they are unaligned.
      The billions of dollars must be in somebody else's name in a bank in somebody else's name, cartels are getting paid in weapons to enhance the take.

    3. The money is in a bank in Beverly Hills in somebody else's name, pay attention four eyes!

  7. I’m in Obregon Sonora- The Salazar’s are wiping the family of Chapo Trini. They just killed one of his nephews in a church in Obregon. Lots of Chapo Trinis family is getting killed.

    Why is B.B. not putting the info about the killings of Chapo Trinis family on a he main page or Forum?

    Can you post something please. I’m not a cartel fan but since the arrest of El Chapo and the killing of Chapo Trini Obregon is getting bad

    1. @ 10:13 I’m also in Obregon. I have also wondered when this would get brought up. Seems like the Salazar family is taking out all of Trinis family and people.
      I’m getting the feeling that Trini had more to do with Obregons safety than I previously thought. Sad how bad it is getting here

    2. You’re not a fan you’re a groupie

    3. who is left of the trinis? is chapo alfredo still around?

    4. Trini also has a son in college in Guadalajara

  8. You don't say.. really? In Badira? Wow.. out of all the places in the world, who would imagine.

  9. Guano just lost the lab!

  10. That's worth more than what they said. All that opium is going to get cut and make like 200 times what that gun was at bbn one point

  11. No personal was arrested I guess, the General had time to leave with all his elements and gunnery.

  12. ROFLMAO!

    Loser Meade and PRI Party have to pay 300,000 peso fine for slandering Nestora during the campaign:

    1. 7:21 El Miado and his vitiligo were not victory bound by any means, and recky (alias "el güichol") Anaya who lives on the US with his famiglia and is a real white guy but was too green to win and too corrupt to be forgiven.
      --Congratulations to Nestora, and a RATSBERRY to those who believed the lies about her


    1. 7:43 whaddafack is that, java or cobol?
      I hope you are not a Russian national trying to steal all our cash and turn us into Russian spies.
