    AP IMPACT: Cartels flood US with cheap meth | General Headlines | Comcast

    Mexican drug cartels are quietly filling the void in the nation's drug market created by the long effort to crack down on American-made methamphetamine, flooding U.S. cities with exceptionally cheap, extraordinarily potent meth from factory-like "superlabs."

    Although Mexican meth is not new to the U.S. drug trade, it now accounts for as much as 80 percent of the meth sold here, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. And it is as much as 90 percent pure, a level that offers users a faster, more intense and longer-lasting high.

    "These are sophisticated, high-tech operations in Mexico that are operating with extreme precision," said Jim Shroba, a DEA agent in St. Louis. "They're moving it out the door as fast as they can manufacture it."

    To bad Obama has allowed this mess to get out of control , yet he opens the flood gates, Obama has destroyed America.......:eusa_hand::eusa_hand:

    I wonder what it would cost to get them to put a little cyanide in the meth before shipping it up here. That could put a dent in crime.

    Cops locked up meth-head buggin' the gas repairman an' mumblin' down our street over the weekend...

    Report: Meth seizures at US-Mexico border soar in 2014
    January 4, 2015 — Seizures of methamphetamine soared at the US-Mexico border during fiscal year 2014, accelerating a trend that began several years ago as new laws that limited access to the drug's chemical ingredients made it harder to manufacture it in the U.S.

    Hey, we're losing the war on meth. Let's legalize it instead!
