I recently listened to audiobook versions of the Don Winslow books "The Power of the Dog" and "The Cartel", which are about the Mexican drug trade. Although these are English-language titles, they frequently use Spanish words and phrases for certain things
One word that gets used frequently sounds like "piso". One gang or cartel will pay a "piso" (or however it is spelled) to another gang/cartel to operate in their territory. Judging from the context, my impression is that the word means something like "offering" or "toll".
Since the word is used frequently, I tried to look up its definition, but all I've found is that "piso" means "floor". However, I found that the verb "pisar" means "to set foot in", which seems close to the concept of paying to operate in someone else's territory, so perhaps the word is a (slang?) conjugation of "pisar"?
