Heroin peddled by Mexican drug cartels have flooded the Northeast and unlike its predecessors from the 1980s, the drug is stronger, cheaper and purer. New York City has become the hub for the criminal enterprise and lawmakers in the state are putting forward a package of legislation that seeks to fight the resurgence of heroin. The bills, expected to become public on Monday, would toughen penalties for dealers, impose more funding for overdose-reversal drugs and increase insurance coverage for treatment. The proposed laws follow a series of forums that Senate Democrats held around the state on the sudden spread of the drug from New York City to sleepy upstate communities and Long Island suburbs. Experts told lawmakers that a crackdown on prescription drugs has pushed addicts to heroin, which is significantly cheaper and easier to obtain. Deaths from heroin overdoses in New York have doubled from 215 in 2008 to 478 in 2012, according to the state Health Department.

The Mexican Cartels might be bringing it in, but this doesn't happen without some level of complicity from high levels of government both in Mexico, and the US. Cheap, high quality, heroin means a large supply. The NSA that records every keystroke and conversation of law abiding citizens, seems much to focused on Merkel and the EU, instead of Venezuela, Mexico, China, and Africa, now the primary exporters of these drugs. 100 overdose deaths daily and the "drug legalization" efforts backed by Fat Cats are rampaging through our nation like a wildfire. All this while deaf and dumb Republicans are talking about "Immigration" and "amnesty". In South America issues like these were simply signs and symptoms of a Narco Nation. Meaning a nation who's government had been compromised and influenced by drug money.
All Cuomo has to do is give another speech adding drug dealers to his already established prohibition list of people who are against abortion and gay marriage coming to New York state.
How about the flood of Illegal Mexicans too? Oh sorry, we tried that here in AZ and Odumbo and Holders "Just Us" department shot it down.
And while they’re at it why not curb the flood of Mexcican illegals into the country?
They might want to run this law past Eric the Corrupt. He is dead set against having too many “minorities” in the criminal justice system.
And, of course, writing another law should help immensely (the brain child of the Ivy League lawyer mob).
If they catch you with seven Dime Bags, no problem.
Eight Dime Bags and you’re in deep doo doo.
Grant them amnesty and citizenship and they won’t be Mexicans anymore.
