Posted on 02/14/2010 7:25:07 AM PST by ruralvoter
Immigrants from an obscure corner of Mexico are changing heroin use in many parts of America.
Farm boys from a tiny county that once depended on sugar cane have perfected an ingenious business model for selling a semi-processed form of Mexican heroin known as black tar.
Using convenient delivery by car and aggressive marketing, they have moved into cities and small towns across the United States, often creating demand for heroin where there was little or none. In many of those places, authorities report increases in overdoses and deaths.

Let’s keep those boders open. People gotta work ya know.
Just “popping” an O pill won’t do much. Crushing and snorting are the thing.

Here is an online link to stories from a small town in Massachusetts where several students died of overdoses of heroin.
They’ll never stop it, Mex mud has been around since the 70’s. They need a new plan.
There is usually no way to assay the potency or purity of something offered on the street. A dealer can get rid of a troublesome customer that way.
This problem is in everyone’s back yard.
My son’s friend started with Oxy then went to Heroin. He tried to get my son to take him to score a brick of the big H. He wound up in jail, rehab and probation. Sad story. Needless to say, my son is forbidden to associate with him.
It’s happening to young people in their 20’s not just high school kids.
Parents, just when you thought you were out of the woods.
Keep your eyes and ears wide open!
heroin OD is an epidemic, more people than most can imagine have been and will be touched by this, and these murderers are deliberately targeting young people whose brain function of judgement is not matured
friends son is lucky to still be alive, I hope he kicks the habit but unfortunately I believe it causes physical changes and urges that most of us cannot imagine
Doing the jobs that Americans just won’t do.
Herion is so linked to narcoterrorism that the US needs to get serious about penalties for dealing it. Make it worth no one’s while.
“Famly values don’t stop a the Rio Grande.”
Yup, more wonderful things from that sunny shit-hole known as Mexico. Celebrate diversity.
The sad truth is how these dealers hide. When law enforcement gets too intense, they hide among hard working illegal immigrants in rural areas. Farm workers who don’t snitch.
“hard working illegal immigrants’’? Working hard at what? Breaking the law?
This is real nasty business and specifically targeting white middle class. The Mexicans are on a bold, out in the open, lawless spree in this country. Who will stop them?
Xalisco bosses have avoided the nation's largest cities with established heroin organizations. Instead, using Southern California and Phoenix as staging areas, they have established networks in Salt Lake City; Reno; Boise, Idaho; Indianapolis; Nashville; and Myrtle Beach, S.C., among other places. From those cities, their heroin -- called black tar because it's sticky and dark -- has made its way into suburbs and small towns.

30 Billion going south every year. We can stop a lot of that. Will we? You know the phrase “plata o plomo”?
