Mexican Army Nabs 15 Tons of Meth

Yo, that’s a lot of meth, Mr.White! The Mexican Army confiscated on Thursday 15 tons of the drug in the western part of the country—roughly half of the total amount of meth taken off the street in 2009. Already, because of the sheer amount that was found, there is speculation that the infamous Sinaloa cartel was involved, though Army officials wouldn't confirm that. They estimated that 15 tons of meth would translate to 13 million doses worth over $4 billion. It was unclear where the drugs were headed, but experts say it looks like Mexico is becoming a major meth source worldwide—not just in the United States.
