Mexico Police Find Enough Fentanyl To Kill Millions En Route To US Border

The Mexican National Security Commission reports that federal police discovered a multi-drug international shipment that included 914 pounds of crystal meth, 100 pounds of fentanyl, 88 pounds of cocaine, and 18 pounds of heroin, in a vehicle headed to the California border.

 

According to the Oxford Treatment Center,

The lethal dose for fentanyl is generally stated to be 2 milligrams. Again, this lethal dose considers that the individual has not developed significant tolerance; however, even in individuals with significant tolerance, the lethal dose of fentanyl is extremely small compared to the potential lethal doses of many other opiate drugs.

That means the 100 pounds of fentanyl (45.5 kilograms) is enough to kill millions of Americans.

Federal police regularly conduct security and surveillance tasks along the highway that connects Ensenada with the town of Lazaro Cardenas. Ensenada is a coastal city in Mexico, the third largest in Baja California and located about 77 miles south of San Diego. Federal police closely monitor the highways in Baja, because the network of roads in the area are some of the top preferred methods of hauling drugs into the United States via drug cartels.

 

On Thursday, federal police noticed an SUV traveling without license plates towards the United States border. After pulling over the vehicle, the driver agreed to a physical inspection of the SUV, and that is where officers found “10 sacks, three suitcases, 18 packages made with adhesive tape and 18 plastic containers,” said Gob.MX.

 

“In total, 620 packages and containers were inside the vehicle, with 532 of crystal, 43 of fentanyl, 73 of cocaine and 8 of heroin, which yielded an approximate weight of 508.4 kilograms.,” Gob.Mx adds. The driver was arrested and now faces serious drug charges. Interesting enough, Mexican investigators were able to confirm the vehicle is registered in California.

In December 2017, we noted that drug cartel violence penetrated the tourist areas of Baja California Sur, home to Cabo and La Paz, which is just south to where the 100 pounds of fentanyl was found. In 2017, there were 62 homicides per 100,000 residents in Baja California Sur, as the country suffers from an out of control drug cartel war.

 

Earlier this month,  Mexico was assigned the Level 2 rating, as U.S. citizens and U.S. government employees are urged to “exercise increased caution” and “be aware of heightened risks to safety and security.” Increased violence in the region has been fueled by U.S. demand for opioids coupled with a power struggle between Mexican drug cartels. In the first 11 months of 2017, there were 22,409 deaths across Mexico–making it one of deadliest years ever.

 

It appears the 100 pounds of fentanyl that could have led to millions of overdoses across the United States was en route from the Tijuana cartel controlled area of Baja California.  The vast networks of cartel territories and drug routes are astonishing throughout Mexico.

 

Perhaps it's not supply that's the problem? America has a drug problem and its demand is fueling it.

If I were President there would be mountains of fentanyl with a huge pile of sterile, individually wrapped needles, and a fucking sign that said "I dare you" in every town. 

These are awful people they don't care about anyone else or themselves. Stop keeping them on my taxes.

Quite correct.  This load got stopped.  There are many others, just today I'm sure.  Where there's demand, somebody is going to meet the demand.  Fortifying the border and and revoking the Constitution haven't worked so far, except to increase the danger premium and make the drugs trade more lucrative for those willing to take the risk.

Far better to decriminalize drug use and treat it like a public health problem.  If junkies can legally get clean stuff that they know what it is, they'll buy that and not fentanyl.  Anybody who does kill themselves on fentanyl, that's on them if they had a choice.  

What makes no sense from a public perspective is the current bullshit.  All it does is create a permanent underclass, depress wages for the rest of us, give a pretext for Authoritarian bullshit and militarization of all of society, the suppression of the Constitution.  Oh, but it does make a crony cabal rich, or at least give jobs to a lot of cops, lawyers, prosecutors, judges, social workers, jailers, court reporters, file clerks, etc.

Let the shit be legal and focus on protecting the rest of us from the side effects.

Rather strange to have such a large shipment in one car with no license plates.  Was it a CIA shipment stopped cold lol?  Why not split that shipment into many other smaller shipments and carried by people traveling in buses.  Better yet everyone knows that area is monitored, there are many dirt roads that bypass HWY1 all over Baja, heck you can even take trails where only a mule can go across. Which makes me wonder if only a small part of that was actual drugs, like the stuff on top, the rest of the stuff being fake drugs.  Cops there are not going to say we found a little bit of the real stuff and most of it was fake.  Even if its all real stuff I bet a lot of it will make its way out of the evidence lockers and still make it across the border.  Also why make it down south and ship it all the way to the north of baja. Why not manufacture all those drugs in the area close to the border. And lastly why transport in the back of a SUV with no license plate when you can transport it in the back of a Federale police vehicle all the way to the border with no problems, which is likely what will happen next with that shipment lol.

These periodic drug seizures are set-ups arranged by the cartels and the Mexican federal police in order to show the "War on Drugs" is making progress.  One SUV gets stopped, and another ten continue on their journey northward.  The government in Mexico City demands action.  The local police oblige, and get a star in their personnel file for the effort, along with envelopes full of cash from the cartel for all participants.  Plomo or plata, take your pick.

My response: More "OBOZO" rotten fruit that President TRUMP and his team have to clean up.

BUILD THE DAMN WALL and the DEMOCRATS can go to HELL!!!!!!

"OBOZO" can go to HELL as well.

They belong to their father, the devil, and they want to carry out their father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Yes it would be, heartless too.

As for all those drugs the Federales got, where do you think they will end up? Unless bonfired right then and there, they will somehow get "lost". This was just another reallocation of resources in the never ending war over who controls the drugs. Mexico just as corrupt as the USA, no wonder they feel so at home here.

A resident of a very multi-cultural area and knowing the blue coastal areas well, I don't know of social problems that sanctuary states have that other states do not have. The Opioid epidemic is everywhere, alcoholism is everywhere, etc.

It makes me think the problems arise from forces independent of the many immigrants, e.g. drug laws (benefiting the entire government, but especially the CIA), the lousy economy, a result of the spending on wars and social programs, beneficiaries the CIA-MIC and permanent-government groups.

Immigrants are a distraction, they are not the source of the problem.  As for 'rape epidemics where Muslims go', a) those are Arabic culture, not Muslim culture, the eastern Muslim cultures are much different, women in business and government, etc. b) notice how the US does NOT have a rape epidemic? Does the fact that so many women carry guns in the US influence that? Or the facts that our cops are not as PC? c) Note that many nation's in the world with large US military bases complain about the US's rape culture. Some of all that is young men, an additional effect of young Arabic men enforcing their societies' modesty dictates.

Also, Arabs have been in Europe in increasing numbers for many years, and only recently has the 'rape epidemic' happened. What made the difference?

In addition to which, much of our recent NWO-driven immigration is driven by the Federal Government's need for graft and the CIA's need for people to run ratlines. George Webb for all that. At worst, immigrants are symptoms, not the disease.

Remember, in 1900, 20% of the population was immigrant, it is only 15% now. Catholics were the big concern then, and the same things were said of them as are said of Mexicans and Muslims now. We are sort of proud of that era of history now, it is a big part of American culture, and not just the cities.

In 1926 there was an immigrant cut-off, because said ((immigrants)) proved themselves as indigestible.  They were causing high friction, and Congress put a stop to it.  These immigrants were agitating for their own state, and for communism.  They were acting as an in-group and demanding special favors.

It is important to only immigrate like type people, or you get high friction civilizations.  

Ever since Putnam's book, Bowling Alone, it is no longer tenable to be an apologist for multiculturalism, or shill for immigration.

People that do this sort of shilling, are in alignment with the dark forces which desire labor arbitrage, sex trafficking, or even satanic child abuse.

High friction societies lose their ability to volunteer and look out for each other.  So, YES, opioid epidemic is a function of people tuning out and feeling isolated, which in turn is a function of idiotic immigration policy.  General societal breakdown has many factors, and high friction is at top of the list.

There are differences between the races, and there are in-group behaviors that form. It is lunacy to immigrate unlike peoples, who then become a drag on the indigenous population.  

With regards to "rape" muslims, it is not culture, it is race.  Indonesian muslims will of course be different than Arab muslims.

this looks like a fake story.  probably created to satisfy DEA and US concerns that Mexico is actually doing something to fight drugs.  notice how the very large bags are simply loaded in the back of the SUV like groceries.  and we all know the best way to travel incognito is without license plates.
