Mexican officials and police officers have been killed

Hello,

Mexico is suffering from the worst drug violence the country has ever seen and as the war against drugs rages on, the opposition "army" continues to seize narcotics, guns and gems from drug traffickers. Where is this ever-increasing bounty kept? The Museum of Narcotics, of course. GlobalPost correspondant Ioan Grillo visited the museum recently and documented it on video:

In just the last year alone, more than 1,000 Mexican officials and police officers have been killed by drug traffickers, who smuggle heroin in butt implants and flash Versace-branded guns. Will learning more about these traffickers help to win the war?
