MEXICO CITY (AFP) — Mexico’s attorney general said the United States had insufficient resources and infrastructure to clamp down on marijuana trafficking, after meeting the US anti-drug czar.
Mexico’s increasingly powerful drug traffickers operate throughout the United States and beyond as well as in Mexico.
“We frequently see insufficient resources and infrastructure to persecute those who carry out small-scale or fragmented marijuana trafficking in the United States,” Eduardo Medina Mora said at a joint news conference with the US Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, Gil Kerlikowske, in Mexico City.
“One of our biggest concerns is that the United States doesn’t give up, and that it increases persecutions of crimes related to the trafficking of marijuana from Mexico to the United States,” Medina Mora said. [emphasis added]
U.S. Drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske merely nodded with incomprehension due to his limited vocabulary.
