MEXICO — Mexican drug cartels’ longstanding attempts to bring coca plantations out of South America and onto their turf may be bearing fruit.
Mexico’s military found and destroyed a 4-hectare plantation of coca in the mountains of Guerrero state in February. This was the third time authorities have found coca plantations in Mexico. The other two were found in the state of Chiapas, near the border with Guatemala, in 2014 and 2020, according to reports.
