MEXICO 🇲🇽 (Synthetic drug) : chemical precursors feed mexico’s meth, fentanyl production

The production of fentanyl and methamphetamine requires key ingredients known as precursor chemicals. Because of their illicit uses, these substances are highly regulated around the world.  

Yet synthetic drug producers in Mexico have found ways to circumvent regulations to obtain the precursor chemicals, and a sophisticated network of brokers has allowed them to find and buy pre-precursors, less regulated chemicals used at an earlier stage of the production process for methamphetamine and fentanyl. These drugs are then transported across the border by groups like the Sinaloa Cartel and the CJNG.

In this investigation, InSight Crime breaks down the different stages of the supply chain for these synthetic drugs.

Malgré cela, ce sont des écoutes téléphoniques qui donneront des détails sur l’emprise du trafic, mêlant politiciens et footballeurs dans un maelström de pacte corruptif d’une redoutable efficacité qui n’épargnera aucun parti. Ils préparaient visiblement des transferts plus nombreux vers l’Europe en jet, avant qu’il ne se fassent prendre. Cela grâce au système de chaîne d’approvisionnement aérien décrit, établi en plusieurs étapes, via des petits aérodromes ruraux discrets. Auparavant l’hélicoptère, massivement de type Robinson, effectue la collecte vers le Brésil à partir du Paraguay, précédé par une vague de petits Cessna venus directement eux de Bolivie, via un réseau double comme on va le découvrir. C’est un footballeur talentueux, aujourd’hui retraité, qui va nous mener aujourd’hui sur une des…
