  1. Great catch Yanqui, but that's just a tiny dent on the war on drugs. I am sure the drug mules will be serving time, in jail then deported back to Mexico.

  2. Isn't it illegal to bring cheese into the US? If so, and that's where it was going, not the best plan. Contraband inside contraband.

    1. I know people bringing 10, 20 cheeses back from mexico in their own car, on the bus, and gorditas, tamales, Chiles gueritos curtidos, no problem, BUT NO VINEGAR... why, that is the best part, chingadamadre!

  3. Mmmmm let me get this straight. 50 lbs of meth are worth more than 42 kilos of meth. Mmmmmmm I wonder if one of us needs to take some math classes.

  4. So who do they send weed to? If its to the states where it is still illegal, i assume the price there dropped since Mexican weed is not as potent as strains found in the legal states, also wouldnt it be much easier to traffick weed from legal states to non legal states? Less risk and lower cost to smuggle across states than country?

    1. People that are super broke will buy this weed specially kids under 18 who cant go to the shops...

  5. I would not necessarily assume any more that all mexican mota is not potent. Alot of more sophisticated strains have migrated south. They are not all that stupid. There is alot of experimentation going on plus light dep happening.

  6. What i want to know were are they making 1million on 50lbs of meth cause thats a real good return on $75,000of meth.

  7. I rip smack talking sinaloenses mouths all the time here in Modesto. So much bark & no bite with you guys. Puro Michoacán, gente humilde y de huevos, no fanfarrónes y habladóres como ustédes.
