Leon Guanajuato Zetas Re-Entered

Leon also has a thriving “narcomenudeo”, or illicit retail drug sales market. Drug use has been rapidly increasing due to the inexpensive availability of drugs such as cocaine and methamphetamine's. The availability of drugs in Leon is due to the northern drug pipeline which passes through the area.
Since the 1990’s, the organized crime “Plaza” of Leon had been under the control of the Sinaloa Cartel and Chapo Guzmán. But in 2008, the control of the plaza was left to the LFM. Hundreds of killers and drug dealers from Michoacan invaded Guanajuato to take over the state’s criminal underworld , According to an interview granted to El Milenio by Servando Gomez “La Tuta”, a top LFM leader, La Familia entered Guanajuato only to create a buffer state that would serve to protect the people of Michoacan from their mortal enemies, Los Zetas.
