By CNNHealth WriterJennifer O’NeillThe pharmacy industry has a big problem in Mexico, where drug overdoses and drug use are on the rise.
It has been a concern since 2013 when the country was gripped by a deadly wave of violence that claimed more than 20,000 lives.
That year, the number of people in Mexico who were dying of drug overdoses hit an all-time high.
The country is facing an economic crisis that has seen millions of Mexicans lose their jobs and the country’s pharmaceutical sector, the backbone of the country, shut down for years.
But it has also created a new wave of drug-related deaths that has become a concern for U.s. pharmacy companies.
Since January, Mexico’s homicide rate has surged, rising from 3.5 per 100,000 people in 2017 to 4.3 in 2018, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.
That is the highest rate in the world.
Mexico has had a violent drug war for decades.
Since the 1980s, when the drug war was launched, more than 40,000 Mexicans have died.
Mexico is one of the top drug-producing countries in the Americas.
The epidemic is so serious that the World Health Organization is urging Mexico to end its drug war.
The United States, which has a more robust drug policy than Mexico, has taken a softer approach.
Drug abuse in Mexico has spiked over the past decade, with drug use up more than 25% in the last year.
Mexico has had two years of a national campaign to address the epidemic.
The country launched a national initiative to prevent drug-using families from leaving their homes and to give them access to the government health system.
But many people still turn to drug dealers and gang members.
Drug use is a huge problem in the country.
Last year, there were 6,700 drug overdose deaths, according the National Health Statistics Agency.
That’s a far higher rate than the United States or Europe, which have rates in the tens of thousands.
Experts say the epidemic is a national problem that has led to the country not having enough resources to fight the epidemic and is also forcing many families to move to Mexico to escape the violence.
Some experts have called the problem in Latin America’s biggest economy the most complicated in the industrialized world.
Some economists say the crisis could worsen as the country struggles to cope with the epidemic’s fallout.
“We’re not going to solve the problem.
We’re not gonna solve it by throwing money at it,” said Dr. Carlos Rangel, the head of Mexico’s national drug agency.
