Mexican drug gangs spreading meth throughout country
BY GREGOR

Just ordinary hard working immigrants, doing jobs Americans won't do.

Via The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Last week, federal officials announced the seizure of 174 pounds of crystal methamphetamine, calling it one of the largest ever on the East Coast.

But that's old news. On Wednesday, the feds announced a bust that doubled that.

In the latest case, law enforcement agents seized 341 pounds of the highly addictive crystal meth — or ice — in a Gainesville home. They said it is further evidence of the growing impact of Mexican drug organizations in the area. It was the sixth largest amount ever seized in this country, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Two men were arrested, and two others are wanted. All are illegal immigrants.
