Cities such as Charlotte, North Carolina are feeling the effects of the rapidly expanding Mexican drug distribution networks. The cartels are working hard to ensure that there is a massive increase of drugs on the streets of Charlotte – particularly black tar heroin. As odd as it might seem to North Carolina citizens, Charlotte has become the main distribution hub for black tar heroin sent to the United States from Mexico. Since 2001 there has been a 244% increase.
Unfortunately, according to law enforcement, the majority of those affected by this infestation are high school students. Many, but not enough are finding their way to North Carolina drug rehabs.
The United State Justice Department released a situation report in April stating that these Mexican drug Cartels pose an extremely great threat to America. The cartels are operating in 195 U.S. cites and officials are expecting a rise in violence as these cartels become stronger and bring in more drugs.
The “War on Drugs” has become a bit of a cliché, but there really is a drug war and the POWs are American citizens, many of them children.
We must first free the citizens who have been trapped in heroin addiction through effective drug treatment, such as Narconon.
We must also reduce the demand through effective drug education.
There are solutions to hand – workable treatment programs and drug education that has been proven to be effective.
North Carolina citizens must simply care enough to demand workable solutions that keep in mind, first and foremost the well being of its citizens in mind.
