This article appeared in the New York Times today. It showed a picture of of presumably law enforcement officials standing next to bales of marijuana seized at in Arizona, smuggled by the Sinaloa drug gang headed by notorious Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán.

The smuggling of guns from the United States into Mexico is also a newsworthy topic and a contextual reference to this would have been necessary in this article if there are guns in the photo.
