Mexican Cartels in Partnership to Cultivate Poppies

Several Mexican drug cartels have created partnerships in order to be present in and have control of areas of poppy production and the transfer of opium gum in Michoacan and Guerrero, according to security sources.

Officials at the Office of National Security and the Federal Police told the newspaper La Jornada that this partnership has led to a rise in the price of the heroin base product and an increase in violence in these territories.

According to sources, the ‘Jalisco Nueva Generacion’ cartel, along with groups from ‘Caballeros Templarios’ (Knight Templars) and ‘Guerreros Unidos’ (United Warriors) are involved in these illegal operations.

According to the civil organization Semáforo Delictivo (“Criminal Stoplight”), violence increases each month in Guerrero, with 76 murders linked to organized crime in January, and 146 in May.

The year in Michoacan began with 70 executions; in May they had totaled 96.
