Meet the Little-Known Mexican Cartel Filling California’s Demand for Heroin

A little-known drug trafficking group in Mexico called “Las Moicas” has not only successfully defended its foothold in the U.S. heroin market for years against Mexico’s most powerful cartels, but recent reports suggest that it might be expanding.

In an interview with BBC Mundo published on March 15, a spokesperson for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said that the Moicas had been expanding their territory in Mexico and that the little-known group had come into conflict with some of Mexico’s biggest criminal organizations, including the Sinaloa Cartel and the Jalisco Cartel-New Generation, or CJNG.

NEW DOCUMENTARY GOES INSIDE EL CHAPO’S SINALOA DRUG CARTEL

The staggering death toll in Mexico’s drug war has outpaced the number of civilian deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan combined.

A new documentary by Spanish journalist David Beriain discloses what and who is behind the brutality that has turned Mexico into one of the most violent places in the world.

Beriain spent several weeks in northwest Mexico filming the inner workings of the Sinaloa Cartel, whose leader Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán’s arrest and recent extradition to the United States has thrown the group—and Mexico—into an even more chaotic spiral of violence.

Stephen Fry Apologizes for Taking Cocaine at Buckingham Palace

The U.K. actor also admitted to taking the drug at Pinewood Studios and BBC headquarters. Stephen Fry has revealed that he once took cocaine while at Buckingham Palace.

The U.K. actor and TV personality admitted to and apologized for his actions in his latest autobiography, More Fool Me, excerpts of which have been widely circulated in the U.K. press. He also wrote that he used the drug in other high-profile locations, including the former BBC headquarters, Pinewood Studios and British parliament during the height of his 15-year addiction.

“I take this opportunity to apologize unreservedly to the owners, managers or representatives of the noble and ignoble premises and to the hundreds of private homes, offices, car dashboards, tables, mantelpieces and available polished surfaces that could so easily have been added to this list of shame,” he wrote.

“You may wish to have me struck off, banned, black-balled or in any other way punished for past crimes,” he wrote. “Surely now is the time to reach for the phone, the police or the club secretary.”

Published on Thursday, the third installment of Fry’s autobiography chronicles his life in the 1980s and 1990s as he found fame on U.K. TV and the expensive habit that grew out of it.

“How can I explain the extraordinary waste of time and money that went into my 15-year habit? Tens if not hundreds of thousands of pounds, and as many hours, sniffing, snorting and tooting away time that could have been employed writing, performing, thinking, exercising, living,” Fry wrote.

Fry, who suffers from bipolar disorder and has previously admitted to his drug addiction, also explained that he didn’t take the drug because he was depressed, unhappy or under pressure. “I took it because I really, really liked it,” he wrote.

Nigeria: Drug Mule Left to Die At Madrid Airport

A Nigerian drug mule has died in a Spanish airport after cocaine bags inside his body split open – because airport staff refused to touch him fearing he had Ebola.

The man collapsed in the customs area of the Madrid-Barajas airport outside the capital after arriving on a flight from Istanbul. Upon hearing that the man was from Nigeria, staff were too afraid to approach the man and left him in shivers on the airport floor.

The man, who had landed on a flight from Istanbul on October 18, died 90 minutes later from a massive drugs overdose, Spain’s El Mundo newspaper said. It later transpired that the man was suffering the effects of a cocaine overdose after several bags of the drug burst in his stomach.

A passenger accompanying the Nigerian later told police that he had flown from Madrid to Istanbul on October 14 and had not been to Nigeria for four years.

Ebola has killed 4,877 people in the past six weeks, almost all of whom were infected with the virus in West Africa.
