    sTUPID fUCKERS.....

    Thats's Nirvana's Afghani and Hindu Kush these cocksuckers are whacking down.....

    LAZARO CARDENAS, Mexico - Soldiers trying to seize control of one Mexico's top drug-producing regions found the countryside teeming with a new hybrid marijuana plant that can be cultivated year-round and cannot be killed with pesticides.

    Soldiers fanned out across some of the new fields Tuesday, pulling up plants by the root and burning them, as helicopter gunships clattered overhead to give them cover from a raging drug war in the western state of Michoacan. The plants' roots survive if they are doused with herbicide, said army Gen. Manuel Garcia.

    "These plants have been genetically improved," he told a handful of journalists allowed to accompany soldiers on a daylong raid of some 70 marijuana fields. "Before we could cut the plant and destroy it, but this plant will come back to life unless it's taken out by the roots."

    The new plants, known as "Colombians," mature in about two months and can be planted at any time of year, meaning authorities will no longer be able to time raids to coincide with twice-yearly harvests.

    The hybrid first appeared in Mexico two years ago but has become the plant of choice for drug traffickers Michoacan, a remote mountainous region that lends to itself to drug production.

    Yields are so high that traffickers can now produce as much marijuana on a plot the size of a football field as they used to harvest in 10 to 12 acres. That makes for smaller, harder-to-detect fields, though some discovered Tuesday had sophisticated irrigation systems with sprinklers, pumps and thousands of yards of tubing.

    "For each 100 (marijuana plots) that you spot from the air, there are 300 to 500 more that you discover once you get on the ground," Garcia said.

    The raids were part of President Felipe Calderon's new offensive to restore order in his home state of Michoacan and fight drug violence that has claimed more than 2,000 lives in Mexico this year.

    In Michoacan, officials say the Valencia and Gulf cartels have been battling over lucrative marijuana plantations and smuggling routes for cocaine and methamphetamine to the United States. In one incident, gunmen stormed into a bar and dumped five human heads on the dance floor.

    The president, who took office Dec. 1, sent 7,000 soldiers and federal officers to Michoacan last week.

    Officials have arrested 45 people, including several suspected leaders of the feuding cartels. They also seized three yachts, 2.2 pounds of gold, bulletproof vests, military equipment and shirts with federal and municipal police logos. More than 18,000 people have been searched, along with 8,000 vehicles and numerous foreign and national boats.

    "We are determined to shut down delinquency and stop crime in Mexico because it is endangering the lives of all Mexicans, of our families," Calderon said, calling the operation a "success" so far.

    In the past week, soldiers and federal police have found 1,795 marijuana fields covering 585 acres in Michoacan, security officials said.

    Officials estimate the raids could cost the cartels up to $626 million, counting the value of plants that have been destroyed and drugs that could have been produced with seized opium poppies and marijuana seeds.

    On Sunday, federal authorities announced the capture of suspected drug lord Elias Valencia, the most significant arrest since the operation began.

    Calderon's predecessor, Vicente Fox, started out with enthusiastic U.S. applause for his own fight against drug trafficking. U.S. officials called the arrest of drug bosses early in his six-year term unprecedented, while Fox boasted that his administration had destroyed 43,900 acres of marijuana and poppy plantations in its first six months and more than tripled drug seizures.

    Yet drug violence has spiked across the country in recent years, with gangs fighting over control of routes following the arrest of drug lords, authorities say.

    Mexico has also continued to struggle with corruption among its law enforcement ranks. Garcia said authorities did not tell soldiers where they were being sent on raids and banned the use of cell phones and radios.

    Hey El Campesino,

    I was going to ask you about that. So, when they say it is a hybrid, are you saying that it is a cross between Afghani and Hindu Kush?

    They also say they are hard to kill. Does that mean it would be easier to grow for an inexperienced hobby grower?

    I can't say for certain what they are growing as I'm not there....I can tell you the genetics that were introduced....that is Afghani and Hindu Kush...there was also a Texas Mystic Hybrid that had a lot of trouble with mold so I doubt that is doing anything there due to the altitude and humidity.

    Most likely what is there now is a cross of Afghani and HK since everything is outdoor and they are cranking 3 or 4 grows per year...probably everything crossed up by now

    here's more

    MEXICO CITY, Mexico (Reuters) -- Mexican police captured a high-profile drug boss in a crackdown on gangs in the western state of Michoacan, authorities said on Monday.

    Alfonso Barajas, known as "Ugly Poncho" and a local chief of the Gulf cartel, was arrested Saturday in Apatzingan, a battleground town where rival drug gangs have been fighting in recent months, Public Security Minister Genaro Garcia said.

    New President Felipe Calderon, who began his six-year term this month, sent more than 7,000 soldiers, sailors and police last week to Michoacan, a transfer point for cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamines smuggled north to U.S. consumers.

    Troops in armored cars and federal police have set up checkpoints around Apatzingan and Aguililla and have searched thousands of vehicles and people in the region, where drug hit men, often better armed than local police, have effectively controlled swathes of the countryside.

    Barajas leads a team of gunmen -- many of them thought to be former soldiers -- called the "Zetas," who fight other drug gangs on behalf of the Gulf cartel, police said.

    Strain drain...

    Great article...if ya' like hearin' 'bout a bunch...and I mean a bunch of perfectly good smoke bein' totally mistreat' my humble opinion...

    El Camp...thanks for the certainly boggles the mind...course with my recently harvest'd MindBoggle X Thai & MindBoggle X NYCD...suffice to don't take much to boggle my

    Had to really laugh out loud at this:

    " They also say they are hard to kill. Does that mean it would be easier to grow for an inexperienced hobby grower? "

    ...reminds me of the strains of garden vegetables that a seed order company sells...they label n' deem certain strains of certain vegetables "ABC" strains...which essentially means that whatever vegetable they are talkin' ''s much easier to grow and care fact...they highly recommend these plants to perhaps these hard to kill mj strains ya' all speak of here are part of that "ABC" series of ;-)

    ...I find that after one harvests his/her own homegrown makes hearin' 'bout others having theirs pull'd by cops and being confiscated...a whole lot easier to bear...lmao...lmao...that's so rude...just keep on harshin' me baby...

    Shiiiit el camp, i just posted on another thread that id heard of a potential drug bust in mexico(very near you i thought?) and now im just reading away to check the link.Be safel ... the authorities are pretty lax with you anyhow aint they?Peace:punk:

    local politicians are quick to take the view that the drug trade is in fact commerce taking place in their territory and feel completely justified in taxing it.

    The true charm of Mexico is that you can fix ANYTHING with $$$....I keep everybody that matters happy, whether it be money or women...they stay happy. :)

    If Mexico was so great we would be crossing illegally instead of the other way around.

    Mexico is Mexico, a source of cheap labor to cook my food at resaurants.

    chopstick Chilled out

    Fence jumping?

    I plan to make a trip to the States sometime soon, I was just wondering how easy it would be to hook up with some Mexicans and run the border, I have outstanding warrents and Intl trafficking charges in North America so Mexico sounds like an easy way in since hunderds seem to be doing it daily. What's the deal, is it really that easy, or am I looking at dying in the desert after being robbed blind by some hopped up drug mule?

    El Campesino The Farmer

    Go to any border town and mingle a few blocks back from the crossings...the "polleros" operate in the areas near bus stations and truck loadings.....there are tricks to getting across in each particular area and these guys are experts at it. ALL border towns are shitholes....VERY dangerous transition points. Be careful and suspicious of everything and everybody. No jewelry and stash your cash good.

    chopstick... el campesino will show you the way!PM him.

    Surprisingly enough chopstick its the canadian border thats the most lax so that would be your best entry point for sure but obviously your on interpol type 'watch' lists?Yes ppl do die in the desert,they even have a patrol of good american ppl who go out and supply the mexicans with water and shit,a lot of ppl HAVE died in the process but listen to el campesino i suppose cos thats his part of the world and business.

    Do ya not know any ships you can get a job on and work till ya port somewhere 'suitable' and set of on your journey.Listen chopstick,from the Emails and pictures el campesino has sent seems like MEXICO is a mini paradise on earth.Hot,beautiful scenery,historic shit i dig,weed all over and no one seems to give a fuck.

    Its a drug runners paradise Chopstick!Nice place for a dude like you to mopve onto and start a lil cultivation in a nice country with no dodgy extradition laws.Shit EVEN dog the bounty hunter might be going to prison in mexico cos he illegally entered the country and arrested/detained the MAX FACTOR heir rapist(A.Lister?).Iv always wanted to DO south america personally so im day i will head out there for a holiday then maybe even retire out there on the beach,either that or Peru/Brasilia.Peace y'all:)
