Fentanyl in Mexico
The seizure of fentanyl in Mexico since the presidency of Andrés Manuel López Obrador began, in December 2018, is 1,000% higher than in the previous equivalent period, amid pressure from the United States.
“Of fentanyl, it is 1,079% more compared to what was had in seizures in the previous administration. Thus, a total of 6,273 kilograms of fentanyl is made, considering what has been done right now this year, which is 168 kilograms,” said Army chief Luis Cresencio Sandoval last Tuesday, January 17.

These figures, from December 2018 to January 2022, compare with the barely 532 kilograms of fentanyl seized between October 2014 and November 30, 2018, when the six-year term of Enrique Peña Nieto ended (2012-2018).
It should be noted that fentanyl is currently the leading cause of death among people 18 to 45 years of age, surpassing suicide, covid-19 and deaths from motor vehicle accidents, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). .
According to the Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), synthetic opioids—including fentanyl—are the drugs most commonly associated with overdose deaths in the United States today. In 2017, fentanyl was part of 59.8% of opioid-related deaths, compared to 14.3% in 2010.
