Mexico Becomes U.S. Meth Source

Border seizures of methamphetamine are surging after years of decline, indicating that the drug once seen as a poor man’s cocaine drummed up in backwoods U.S. kitchens are becoming a key export of Mexican drug traffickers.

The Drug Enforcement Administration estimates the vast majority of all U.S. meth seized now originates in Mexico, with increasing amounts of it hauled up Texas highways to the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the newest superhub for Southeastern U.S. distribution.
