Chapo Down Under

The Australian Crime Commission says that Chapo Guzmán is the major cocaine supplier in that country. This comes months after the newspaper The Age reported that Guzmán smuggles 500 kilos into the country every month. The ACC also points out that despite the distance, the fact that Australians are prolific users of illegal drugs and prices there are far higher in Australia than in other developed nations makes the market an attractive one for global networks. I'm not sue when it all started, Mexicans have been getting detained in Australia for drug trafficking with some regularity since at least 2008.
