International News: Authorities in Mexico seize over 40 tons of meth from drug lab in Sonora

Posted: Tuesday, February 13, 2024. 11:28 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Authorities in Mexico have seized over 40 tons of methamphetamine at the biggest drug lab found during the current administration.

According to the Associated Press, the Mexican navy raided the lab in Sonora last Thursday.

Law enforcement authorities found more than 90,000 pounds of meth and another 28,000 pounds of meth chemicals.

The Mexican navy reportedly destroyed the equipment by blowing it.

Officials believe that the drug was bound for export to Europe, Asia and the United States.

But Mexico also has a big problem with domestic use of meth.

Previously, most big meth labs had been found in Sinaloa, but it appears the increasingly violent state of Sonora has become a center of production, and not just a smuggling route.
