I was interested to read that in Virginia Mexican cocaine is displacing drugs imported in the state from NYC because the Mexican coke is cheaper. What this means for possible new drug violence in Virginia I have no clue, but it is interesting that such a relatively small local market (half a million dollars) warrants the attention of international supply chains.

If Mexican cocaine is cheaper in central Virginia than NY cocaine (a nearby and robust market itself), it might lead even non-inquiring minds to consider the cascading failures of the U.S.-financed drug war in Mexico, even with its most recent enormous boost.
