Red ribbon week began after the death of Agent Enrique Camarena's (DEA agent)death. Before his death he had been undercover for over four years in Mexico.He had given DEA a bunch of info about a multi-million dollar narcotics manufacturing operation in Mexico. So they began red ribbon week to honor him and to bring awareness to drug and alcohol use.
