Mexican Army Burns More Than 36 Tons of Marijuana
Fri, 11 Nov 2011 21:18:35 GMT —
The Mexican Army, in conjunction with the Mexico's Attorney General's Office, incinerated more than 36 tons of marijuana in Reynosa on Thursday.
Soldiers seized the drugs in a series of sweeps over the past few weeks all along the border from Ciudad Mier to Matamoros.
The Mexican Army also incinerated nearly seven pounds of cocaine.
Once the drugs are taken in, soldiers send them to the regional Army headquarters in Reynosa.
Every few weeks, soldiers burn the drugs.
But they are quickly replaced my even more drugs, as the cartels seek to get them across the Tamaulipas border and into the Valley.
