Buying American, another reason not to support China.

I buy local, Made in America and Made in Oklahoma at every chance I get, even if it cost me a bit more. I try to keep my money flowing in my local economy to help out and support those that I live near. That being said, I do not need much more of a reason to not send my money overseas if I can help it. But running across this article made me look even a little more closely at where those products that I have to buy from other sources come from. I have several different economies I try my hardest to keep from supporting, China being one of the most prominent on that list. This only goes to reinforce the stance that I take on the issue.

China in business with drug cartels

  • February 4th, 2011 9:29 pm ET

Last week, Mexican authorities seized over 23 tons of ethyl phenylacetate, which is used in the manufacture of methamphetamine. The drug component was discovered at the Pacific port of Manzanillo, in a shipment from China.

In April 2010, Mexican officials seized 80 tons of phenylacetic acid and its derivatives shipped from Shanghai, China. Imports of ethyl phenylacetate require authorization from the country’s health ministry, so the shipments are intentionally mis-labeled before leaving China.

Last year, an anonymous U.S. official told Reuters that between October and November 2010, Mexican authorities seized 818 tons of chemicals used in making crystal meth.

Due to rampant corruption among port officials, the cartels are allowed to receive large shipments of the chemicals from China which are transported to meth labs throughout Mexico.

The chemicals are used in a production process known as phenyl-2-propanone (P2P method), and cost much less than pseudoephedrine, thus increasing the cartels’ profits.

In 2009 alone, the Mexican police and military found 215 meth labs, a 400 percent increase of the labs discovered in 2008.

90 percent of the methamphetamine sold in the U.S. is brought into this country from Mexico and distributed by several street gangs such as the notoriously violent MS-13.
