Yucatan appears in a study on the transfer of drugs to the United States.
A new Stanford University report indicates that Yucatan figures among routes used by organized crime to transport drugs to the United States and Asia. At the same time, it is indicated that the Southeastern territories of Mexico are in dispute between the drug cartels that operate in the country.
The study in which Yucatan appears on the map of drug trafficking routes was prepared by Stanford University and made known to the Mexican Senate.
There are 27 routes in the country for transfer of drugs, and Yucatan is included in one of them, according to the analysis.
The drugs arrive in Cancun by air from countries like Colombia and Venezuela, and later they are distributed by maritime and terrestrial routes in different points of the Southeast region. Yucatán is among the states along this route. Drugs then move to the north of the country to reach the United States and Asia.
However, an agency of the Office of the Attorney General of the Republic says that in Yucatan organized crime does not operate, as it does in the neighboring state of Quintana Roo, where drug-related violence has recently occurred, and left behind multiple deaths.
