Mexican Drug Cartels Created Their Own Fentanyl Crisis

"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat





Fentanyl is killing more Americans than ever. It's blamed for more than 70 thousand fatal overdoses each year. 

US authorities say the synthetic opioid is mostly produced in Mexico and trafficked across the border. But addiction and deaths are also on the rise in Mexican towns and cities. 

When smuggling into the US all but stopped during the pandemic, the cartels unleashed fentanyl on their own population. Now they're trying to clean up the mess. 

Our Latin America Correspondent Guillermo Galdos travelled to Tijuana, to see how it's going.

  3. I’m curious to know if the amount of bodies that are dropping here in the US are anything compared to the amount of O’ds that are happening in Mexico or china. Was thinking about that the other day

    1. 7:53 - If we compare Mexico, America, and Canada’s drug related deaths, Mexico has the least amount of deaths from overdoses :
      https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6301408/
      Mexico suffers from high murder rates and the U.S. suffers from a high number of overdose deaths.

    1. 9:11 - Mexico’s drug consumption is nothing compared to the U.S. drugs consumption problem. 100,000 people are not overdosing and dying in Mexico every year like they are in America.

      When you croak at the Hong Kong, whether it be from a contaminated $20 bump of coke or a Viagra induced stroke, the meseros immediately carry you outside and plant your dying ass on the sidewalk to wait the half hour or so it takes for an ambulance to arrive..
      The HK management grievously mourns the tragic loss of a paying customer, but the show must go on..
      Maybe wouldn't have made a difference in homie's case, but you young bucks should always bring along a trustworthy wingman to cover your back..

    1. because heroin has too much risk.. weather/yield of crop, only being able to grow in certain regions, raids on poppy fields, etc. Fent is just chemicals mixed together.. can be made in any house, labs moved around, etc. Fent production is so much more stable.

    2. 2:09 El Mickey has a point.
      The Cartels don't care if it kills, it's customers keep coming and dying .
      The dead get replaced by more customers.

  15. Selling dope to your own paisanos is fast-tracking s#!+ hole country status. Not as if México has ever been a beacon of inspiration worldwide. What kind of person/group focuses on a population in complete despair, then sells them a way to make their lives magnitudes worse? The neighborhoods go to sh#!+ and EVERYBODY suffers. And the government? Abrazos, no balazos, and daily mañaneras by a virtually comatose, wannabe Che Guevara... choking on cartel testicles. No matter what side of this story the protagonists lie, truly, a magnificent case of "I don't give a fu<#." Off soap. Que tengan muy buen día, compañeros de ésta platica.
    Hasta luego,
