Families in Action – Monday, June 24, 2013

Cary and Bob started today’s show off with an announcement they love to share, letting the community know Canyon High School hosts a free group meeting with Action Family Counseling, where parents can come with their kids to tackle the increasingly growing problem of our youth experimenting with drugs in our community. There is also a spanish speaking group as well. Next, they brought on Sam Quinones to speak about the influx and history of Mexican Black Tar Heroin. Sam is an investigative journalist with decades of reporting under his belt from covering crime in Stockton, to living in Mexico and covering the tracks of the cartels to villages producing heroin and working with the LA Times and so much more. It was really staggering how much knowledge Sam has acquired over the years, he has single handedly discovered the intricacies of the Mexican drug trade. For example, Sam was talking to a Prosecutor in Charlotte, North Carolina who had several illegal immigrants and their cell phones (which are used to communicate to the higher ups in Mexico) and the cells were ringing off the hook saying how they already replaced the people who were arrested. This entire multinational business is really unique, and works exactly like a franchise, driven by entrepreneurial individuals. These people making the drugs and driving it over the border and throughout the targeted cities are mostly farm boys from extremely small communities trying to make a little money for them to live on. Nearly all of them are from a culture that embraces producing the heroin because it is an easy job that will put food on the table – completely different from the old idea of mafia, gun totting violent dealers.
