Nothing New Under the Sun

I have been saying this for a while and this is the reason that I won't do drugs.....Drugs have deep social ties and the roots run deep griping and holding societies, communities, towns, and even entire countries down....I really do feel that certain types of drugs fragment a person(body, mond and soul) and make you more susceptible to demonic possession and mind control....

Meth ring targeted reservations

LANDER -- A ruthlessly planned and executed business plan developed by a Mexican drug ring targeted Indian reservations in the West for methamphetamine distribution.

Last month, Jesus Martin Sagaste-Cruz was convicted of distribution of methamphetamine and conspiracy, and sentenced to life in federal prison.

Authorities said he executed a business plan to sell meth not only in Fremont County, but also the Rosebud, Pine Ridge and Yankton reservations in South Dakota and the Santee Sioux Reservation in Nebraska.

To execute the business plan, members of the Cruz cell moved into nearby communities of the above reservations, Murray said. The first thing the Mexican-national gang members did was to develop romantic relationships with Indian women.

Some of them even had children with these Indian women," Murray said.

The women were introduced to meth with free samples, he said. "All of the low-level distributors said they started as recreational users," and all became severely addicted to meth.

To support their new and expensive habits, meth customers became dealers and distributors themselves, using free samples to recruit customers, Murray said. From there, it was steady growth as customers became dealers/recruiters themselves, and their customers became dealers/recruiters in a deadly pyramid growth scheme.

The growth of the customer base was equal opportunity, with meth sold to Indians and non-Indians alike.
