Good news - drug bust

| No Comments

Huge bust in California - nice job keeping this shit from crossing the border Joe.
From the London Daily Mail:

Man, 30, and woman, 27, are arrested after cops find 21kg of carfentanil - enough to kill 50 MILLION people: Powerful sedative is 100 times more potent than fentanyl

    • Andres Jesus Morales, 30, and 27-year-old Christine Ponce were arrested after police in Southern California discovered the deadly stash in a residential home
    • Carfentanil is intended to sedate large animals such as elephants and moose
    • It's deadly at a nanogram level, but is used by dealers to give users a good high
    • The pair charged were arraigned yesterday, and were held in jail without bail

Police arrested two people after finding 21 kilograms of the highly-toxic drug carfentanil – enough to kill 50 million people – inside a Southern California home.

The synthetic opioid, which is 100-times more potent than fentanyl, is typically used to sedate elephants and other large mammals.

Andres Jesus Morales, 30, and 27-year-old Christine Ponce were charged with four felonies for possession for sales of fentanyl, cocaine, and heroin. Both pleaded guilty during an arraignment yesterday and were held without bail. They're due to appear in court again November 9.

Carfentanil is so powerful that it's fatal at a nanogram level; veterinarians wear protective gear while handling it to avoid exposure.

The amount seized would be enough to kill 50 million people if it was mixed with other drugs, police said.

Just wonderful - precursors come over from China into Mexico, manufactured in Mexico and then the cartels bring it into the USA. Thank you Chuck.  Thank you Nancy.  Keeping the borders open - just your part in wrecking this nation so that you can get a bit more money and power.
