Wolbachia, helping to provide the community long-lasting protection from harmful diseases such dengue, Zika and chikungunya.
La Paz is the first city in Mexico to implement the WMP's self-sustaining method that uses naturally-occurring bacteria called Wolbachia to reduce the ability of mosquitoes to transmit viruses between people.
Once mosquitoes with Wolbachia are released in La Paz, they breed with wild mosquitoes until over time the majority of mosquitoes carry Wolbachia, helping to provide the community long-lasting protection from harmful diseases such dengue, Zika and chikungunya.
Dengue poses a significant health burden across the La Paz community. During 2013 and 2014, Baja California Sur experienced a dengue epidemic, with up to 4,472 confirmed cases.

The recent suggestion by Enrique de la Madrid, Mexico’s Minister for Tourism, to decriminalize marijuana is certainly worthy of debate. Even the mere suggestion that cannabis could be legalized as a way to reduce insecurity (and boost tourism) has generated no shortage of reaction.

A person was shot and killed with 3 bullets to the head in the downtown area of +La Paz Baja California Sur BCS at Márquez de León and Guillermo Prieto. Basically diagonally across the street of La Cava del Patron
We are back to the old “normal” of daily killings if you observe the daily news. (If so, keep in mind to do with a grain of salt - ALL local and popular opinion websites / outlets are “sponsored” by the government).

The USA with 31 million Americans visited Mexico in 2016 and State Department data shows there were reports of 75 American homicide victims there while, In comparison, 49 million Americans traveled to all other foreign countries, and 69 were reported killed by homicide.
The Australians warn about "Violent crime, including murder, armed robbery, sexual assault, and kidnapping, occurs in Mexico, including in popular tourist destinations and beach resorts" and the Canadians issue the ".......hotel employees, taxi drivers and security personnel “at popular tourist destinations” have physically or sexually assaulted foreigners" warning.
And that all published by an investigative travel editor in the digital powerhouse Forbes online magazine. More headache for the tourism marketing attempting to white-wash and sugar-coat that......

On February 2, 1848 the United States acquired about 55 percent of Mexico’s territory for $15 million. The treaty set a border between Texas and Mexico, and ceded land that now includes the states of California, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, most of Arizona and Colorado, and parts of Oklahoma, Kansas, and Wyoming to the United States.
In late 1853, the United States acquired more territory from Mexico. The Gadsden Purchase represented about 29,000 square miles of land that eventually became southern Arizona and New Mexico. The then-steep cost of $10 million became part of a broader controversy about slavery since Southern railroad interests wanted the territory for a proposed rail line to California.

The Mexican government reported on Sunday there were 29,168 murders in 2017 in Mexico, the highest homicide rate in decades.
The Interior Department, which posted the number, reported the country’s homicide rate was 20.5 per 100,000 inhabitants in 2017, compared to 19.4 in 2011.
However, some parts of Mexico were singularly violent including Baja California Sur, home to the twin resort towns of Los Cabos, showing a rate of 69.1 (Compare with high population density US locations: St. Louis, Missouri/59.29 - Baltimore, Maryland/55.37 - Detroit, Michigan/43.82 - New Orleans, Louisiana/41.68 by 2015 FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Program)
This year promises to be even bloodier. The violence in Mexico has many causes. Drug trafficking is one of them, of course, but it is not the only one, There are social triggers, institutional ones, historical ones, issues of land rights, it is complex.
The murder rates now are about where they were in the mid-20th century.
The violence was different then, no doubt, but your possibility of being murdered in the 1930s was considerably higher than it is now.

The US state department has warned tourists to "completely avoid" five states in Mexico because of rampant crime levels and gang activity.
Colima, Guerrero, Michoacán, Sinaloa and Tamaulipas have all been classified as a level-four risk, the highest in the scale.
That puts them at the same levels as conflict-ridden countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.

The Samalayuca sand dunes are considered one of Mexico's best-kept secrets. With their stunning views and endemic vegetation, they have plenty of potential to attract tourists, nature lovers and sand boarders. But their location, just 50km (30 miles) south of Ciudad Juárez, means few venture out here as many are put off by the Mexican city's high murder rate.

John Feeley, a former Marine Corps helicopter pilot, said he was "honor-bound" to resign. "As a junior foreign service officer, I signed an oath to serve faithfully the president and his administration in an apolitical fashion, even when I might not agree with certain policies," Mr Feeley said in his resignation letter.
"My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that, I would be honor bound to resign. That time has come."
