    In this Sept. 7, 2012, photo a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration technician holds several pounds of Mexican meth confiscated in the St. Louis area. Methamphetamine has long been a significant problem in the United States, but the DEA says the influx of meth from south of the border is offsetting any gains made against clandestine meth labs in the U.S. DEA statistics show that the Mexican cartels are making the meth more pure, creating a faster and easier high for users, and they’re selling it more cheaply in hopes of creating a new market. Seizures at the border and in several U.S. cities are up sharply. (AP Photo/Jim Salter)

    Soldiers stand guard at a military checkpoint in San Salvador January 12, 2012. As Mexican cartels are moving into Central America, this forces governments to call in army troops to support local law enforcements efforts against drug trafficking. Drug gangs have also established connections with local kingpins and gangs, known as Maras, increasing the levels of violence in the area. Picture taken January 12, 2012.
