"Drug Death" Stories: the Mexico Connection

Every night you hear more stories about 'heroin overdose' deaths.  Milwaukee County set a record last year for those, and will break that record this year if things don't change.

You then hear that the "H" problem began with licit, prescribed, opioid pain-killers given for back pain, or some such.  When the scrip expired, the patient moved over to heroin.

What you NEVER hear is this:  the heroin comes from Mexico, and it's an easy journey since there is no Wall.  You also NEVER hear that various elements of Mexican state- and federal-governments are wholly owned by the drug gangs

It's common knowledge in the Border Patrol; it's common knowledge within CIA and diplomatic circles.  But somehow, the "press" doesn't want to talk about it.
