Mexico Guatemala Meth Boom
In this photo released by the Mexican navy on Dec. 28, 2011, Navy marines stand guard in front of several barrels containing 120,000 kilograms of methylamine, a controlled substance used as a precursor to methamphetamine, that were inside several containers headed for Guatemala, seized at the Pacific port of Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico, Dec. 23, 2011. Based on seizure data, and interviews with U.S. and Guatemala officials, it appears that Sinaloa cartel chief Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman appears to be taking advantage of Guatemala's remote, isolated mountains and an alliance with a key Guatemalan trafficker to make the Central American nation into a new international meth production base.
