Drug-related violence in Mexico spiked in recent years as drug trafficking organizations (DTOs) competed for control of smuggling routes into the U.S. Drug trafficking issues are prominent in Mexico because the country has for at least four decades been among the most important producers and suppliers of heroin, marijuana and (later) methamphetamine to the U.S. market. Today it is the leading source of all three drugs and is now the leading transit country for cocaine coming from South America to the U.S. Although previous Mexican governments had accommodated some drug trafficking in the country, when President Felipe Calderón came into office in Dec. 2006 he made battling the Mexican drug trafficking organizations a top priority. In response to the government’s crackdown, the DTOs responded with escalating violence. Contents of this May 2009 report: (I) Drug Trafficking in Mexico: Background on Mexico’s Anti-drug Efforts; Major DTOs in Mexico; Other Groups and Emergent Cartels; The Mexican State v. The DTOs; Pervasive Corruption and the Drug Trade; (II) Escalation of Violence in 2008 and 2009: Causes; Location of the Violence and Mexico’s Drug War Strategies; (III) The U.S. Policy Response; The Mérida Initiative; Implementation of Mérida.
