Mexican President AMLO: ?No More War? on Drugs
31 Jan 2019

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) sent shockwaves after publicly claiming an end to his country?s drug war. The politician said his administration will focus on reducing violent crimes instead of capturing regularly violent drug lords.

?There is no more war, officially there is no war because what we want is peace,? AMLO said during a press conference in Mexico City. The politician said his government would focus on decreasing violent crimes rather than fighting a war on drugs like his predecessors. Since AMLO took office in December, Mexican authorities have not captured any major cartel figures despite the escalating drug violence.

Homeland Security intercepts nearly 2 tons of meth bound for Australia; 6 arrested
02-09-2019
By Samuel Chamberlain

A joint operation between American and Australian law enforcement led to the seizure of close to two tons of methamphetamine in California that was bound for the land down under, authorities announced late Thursday.

As part of their investigation, the Australian Federal Police and police in the southern state of Victoria arrested six people, including an American couple living in the Melbourne suburb of Woodstock. Police said they had found "[h]undreds of thousands of dollars of proceeds of crime" while executing a search warrant of the couple's property. They were not identified except as a 52-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman.

...

... the drug shipment intercepted last month was concealed in 850 electrical capacitors stored inside two large containers purported to contain audio equipment. The shipment also included 25 kilograms (55 pounds) of cocaine and five kilograms (11 pounds) of heroin. In all, the entire shipment was worth an estimated $1.3 billion.

Hill said that the quantity of drugs that were intercepted proved that Australia is being targeted by Mexican drug cartels.
