during his morning conference on March 17 President Andrés Manuel López Obrador took up the controversial contradiction about the fentanyl that has dominated the conversation among civil servants United States and México.

After being questioned about the cases of violence and in particular the complaint for bullying and sexual abuse that arose from a student of the Autonomous University of Nuevo Leon the president recalled the debate on responsibilities for drug trafficking.

“Why don’t we have the problem (of fentanyl) that sadly has the United States? Because of our cultures,” said the president and stated that consumption “is limited to some cities, but that it is not widespread throughout the country.”

In recent years, consumption has become established in Mexican municipalities such as Tijuana; However, both the media, non-governmental organizations and the Government itself have realized that the production crisis It is not limited only to the border area with the United States.

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) published the dismantling of a synthetic drug laboratory in México City in 2021.

In 2022, a report by the National Intelligence Center (CIN) identified three mexican companies that supply chemicals for the production of fentanyl to the Cartel of Sinaloa and the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG).

He dealt with the case of Guanajuato where six women disappeared on March 7 in celaya and then the Guanajuato Prosecutor’s Office assured that it found “some” of them dead.

He said that Guanajuato is where most crimes are committed, although he pointed out that it is a prosperous state with business growth, but he attributed the decline to problems of family integration.

He pointed out that it was when the maquiladoras and the fathers and mothers began to work, which increased the problems in drug addiction and the government never carried out public policies to attend to the families and “suddenly They started taking drugs.”

He pointed out that in Guanajuato there are more crimes than in Sinaloa and that in Jalisco “the headquarters of the cartels”.

According to data from the Secretariat for Citizen Security and Protection (SSPC), six of the 32 states in the country accounted for 48.6 percent of the homicides, being the most violent Guanajuato scene of 3 thousand 260 crimes in 2022.

He said that, assuming that the fentanyl from China to enter the United States, another drug could emerge and the search to eradicate consumption would be the real priority.

“There is loneliness, sadness, lack of integration of families,” he said. “Lack of love and apapachos”. He affirmed that the funds should be used to address the causes and fight the bands who distribute the drug in United States, as well as control the arms sales.

The first thing, he said, is that people are happy and that they do not need to resort to a drug.
