Mexican Cartels: How Drug Wars Affect Mexico, USA, Canada
After the fall of the Colombian drug cartels, it was only a matter of time before another group took over. Mexico’s cartels are even more dangerous than the Colombians due to their ambition and ruthlessness. These groups affect daily life in their native country with the threat of violence and horrific crimes, and have a stranglehold over local journalists. In this video, WatchMojo.com speaks with journalist Jerry Langton about his book "Gangland: The Rise of the Mexican Drug Cartels from El Paso to Vancouver," about how the cartels affect everyday life in Mexico, and we discuss how the drug wars bleed into the United States and Canada.
