When the city's locally-made meth industry collapsed in 2005, a new type of dealer and supplier took over. Mexican suppliers flooded the city with 'Ice', giving them complete monopoly over Portland's drug market. Taking advantage of the epidemic of prescription pill addiction, the Mexican cartels moved in, flooding the city with cheap and potent heroin. Targeting users as young as 15, a whole generation of young addicts have funded a drug empire based on Mexican heroin that is leaving a trail of death and destruction in its wake.
