Badiraguato Mayor Wants Drug Trafficking Museum; Governor rejects it

In Badiraguato, Sinaloa – homeland of Joaquín “Chapo” Guzmán and Rafael Caro Quintero – they want to build a drug trafficking museum, to attract tourism and economic development, said the mayor of the municipality, José Luis López Elenes.
He explained that in the museum would be figures of the iconic drug trafficking characters of the region.
“It is possible that we can have a museum of drug trafficking, we are not closed to any issue … We are a government that is going to push for economic development to reach the municipality and we can overcome this stigma of drug trafficking,” he said.

He assured that the history of Badiraguato cannot be denied, “they must recognize it”; He pointed out that this museum would also serve to tell people that “it is not good to be in that activity and how harmful it is to consume the drug.”
“We should not be scared of a drug trafficking museum, on the contrary, we must see the positive side,” said the mayor of Morena.

He pointed out that in that municipality there is a vocation for work, kindness and loyalty, which prevail over anyone who seeks to stigmatize this land.

I do not agree at all, and emphatically reject, the idea of building a drug trafficking museum in Badiraguato. The municipality in which I was born, is historically distinguished by the vocation of work, kindness and loyalty of its people.
