Dwelling on one state with more details, we can mention that North Carolina has a lot of problems with various drug inroads into its territory. Nowadays the Mexican cartels are giving big amounts of heroin there and the city Charlotte that is located in North Carolina is considered to be one of the main distribution centers for black tar heroin imported from Mexico’s fields. The quantity of drug is really great in the city and its price is something about $12.50 a dose.

Time passes and the number of drug abused people increases quickly year in year out in North Carolina. New patients everyday become drug addicted and almost 15-20 new patients are seeking the treatment for heroin addiction daily in The McCleod Addictive Disease Center in Charlotte. These numbers of new patients are great because there were only 7-8 patients daily in 2008, and these numbers have increased to 15-20 patients a day in 2011.Drug cartels present a big threat to the United States but their scales of development grew quickly because the major cartels decided to unite their forces and they have formed different alliances with one another for the purpose of to increase their influence and occupy much more territories in different states.

At the end of the paper it is necessary to say that it is surprisingly, but even drug cartels have their own enemies. These enemies are business rivals and adversaries. Those cartels that have failed their attempts to divide the zone of influence between each other are business rivals, while adversaries are politicians who are constantly trying to fight corruption and drug trafficking in their country. Politicians are enemies number one for Mexican cartels, while the enemies number two are people who do not want to take drugs and promoting such negative attitude to drugs to the masses. Praise and honor for such people, in fact they are the greatest threat to the drug cartels because the more people hate drugs, the less revenue will receive the drug lords.

In conclusion, we have observed existed situation with drugs in the United States and show an example of Mexican cartels’ inroads to North Carolina. Our nation needs healthy future and only people who will understand this can unite their efforts and stop drug inroads into the country.
