U.S. drug intelligence says Mexican cartels are "operating" in 230 cities in nine regions of the U.S. What does that mean?
They move the drugs up here into major hubs like Chicago, and they control the transport into smaller communities. They make extensive use of local gangs. The Juarez cartel in Chicago hires local gangs like the Latin Kings to help with distribution.
Who's growing marijuana for the cartels in the national parks?
It works like a terrorist cell structure.
...and in this country?
...Sorry for so much grim news lately. But I can't help but think how the family of the murdered man feels, even as many of us gather our families close this week.
