Mexican Cartel Targets MT Reservations-(Also Fentanyl 20 Times the Profit in MT)

Date:

There is some seriously big big money in the sale of fentanyl in Montana (except on reservations where initially it is doled out for free to ensure addiction sets in among the natives). Once they are hooked on these drugs the cartels ‘own’ the native population so to speak.

Mexican cartels have flooded Montana with fentanyl and meth – by setting up operations on Indian reservations, where law enforcement is scarce, according to a report.

“They know who to choose,” Stephanie Iron Shooter, the American Indian health director for the Montana Department of Health and Human Services told NBC News.

“Just like any other prey-predator situation — that’s how it is.”

The drug pushers have found that the notoriously deadly fentanyl goes for nearly 20 times the price in remote Big Sky Country, where its population of 1.2 million is spread out across 150,000 square miles of rugged terrain.

They will initially target Native Americans by giving away an initial supply of drugs, transforming them into addicts, former Drug Enforcement Administration investigator Stacy Zinn said.”
