Uh Oh: Four Troubling Takeaways From The New Drug Trafficking Report

2. Trump was right.

It turns out that “nearly all” opium derivatives found in the U.S. originated in Mexico. They were either grown in Mexican poppy fields or trafficked by Mexican-based drug cartels. To put this in perspective, Mexico produced just 39 percent of America’s supply eight years ago. In the last three years alone, Mexico has gone from growing 11,000 hectares of poppies in 2013 to 28,000 in 2015.

Reminder: we’ve spent $2.3 billion since 2008 trying to combat the flow of drugs and crime from Mexico. It isn’t working.
