AB in Mexico

Don't watch this episode if you are prone to depression.
The first part Tony explains how the entire country of Mexico is 100% owned and operated by the 'cartels'. He even provides a map of where each cartel controls which part of the country.
Pretty damn bleak business.
In the last quarter of the episode Tony throws in a few compulsory/compensatory scenes about some local foods.
But by then the damage had been done to my psyche.
I'm not 'glad' I watched the whole episode but I now have a clearer picture of the very sad reality facing those you live there.
I did note that the point was made that at first the drugs were mostly being smuggled into the US. But now a lot of the drugs are for 'home consumption'.
After the Mexico episode the TV station re-ran the Lyon episode.
The contrast was mind numbing.
