Federal law enforcement reporters Jim Mustian, New York, and Jake Bleiberg, Dallas, revealed how the coronavirus is taking a bite out of the global drug trafficking – everything from severing key supply chains for Chinese precursor drugs to paralyzing the economies upon which drug sales rely. With detailed, on-the-record source work, they reported why drug cartels in Mexico and Colombia are being disrupted and how that is playing out in cities across the U.S., mostly in the form of tight supplies and prices that have risen to crisis-gouging levels. They also revealed how cartels are purposely withholding sales of some drugs, such as meth, to keep prices high. https://bit.ly/355KtWz
