The nation’s acting drug czar promised more coordination with Canada on drug trafficking issues Tuesday and highlighted his northern border strategy by touring an area in North Dakota where authorities say heroin and other drugs are being pushed by motorcycle gangs and Mexican cartels.
Michael Botticelli, acting director of the White House’s Office of National Drug Control Policy, told The Associated Press he picked the oil patch as a backdrop because of the administration’s focus on combating the growing drug problem in the prosperous Bakken region. He said the area’s proximity to the Canadian border also was a factor.
