In the northwestern region of Mexico, a significant discovery has been made by security forces. A massive drug laboratory was found in a rural area, with over 40 tons of methamphetamine and chemicals for the production of synthetic drugs seized during an operation in Rancho Viejo, Sonora state. This is considered one of the most important discoveries in recent years and no arrests have been reported as a result of the operation.
Mexico is plagued by high crime and widespread impunity, especially amid the so-called war on drugs. Drug cartels and criminal syndicates control vast regions of the country and engage in violent battles for areas of influence and smuggling routes. Despite having a population of around 126 million, the country registered over 30,000 murders last year, with most of the crimes going unsolved.
In addition to this, Mexico also faces several unrelated issues such as fashion trends, firearms laws, chiropractic services, casinos, and online gaming. These topics may not be directly related to security or crime but they are still important issues that impact Mexican society.
