Two Men Busted for Having Enough Fentanyl to Kill 4.7 Million People.
Two men have been hit with several felony charges in Southern California, after police say they found enough fentanyl to kill 4.7 million people … in one of the largest busts the county has seen in 16 years.
You read that right. Police arrested 36-year-old Edgar Alfonso Lamas and 53-year-old Carlos Raygozaparedes … after authorities found 821 lbs of meth, nearly 190 pounds of cocaine and 20.5 pounds of fentanyl pills inside a minivan pulling out from an Orange County, CA home.
As little as 2 milligrams of fentanyl is a lethal dose. The Orange County DA previously warned it would be cracking down on drug dealers … even saying murder charges would be on the table in cases involving drugs like fentanyl that all too often result in a person’s death.
Both guys now face a list of felony drug charges and a max sentence of 37 years and 4 months, if convicted.
They’ve both pleaded not guilty and remain in custody, on a $5 mil bail.
Today’s game is beyond stupid. All of the lacing, cutting, and straight up weird stuff. Syrup? Fentanyl? Bath Salts? And all the other crazy sh**? Why? I still haven’t, and never will see most of the drugs from the old days. Yeah, me and everyone else heard about them. I had fun with some of them back in the day. Sorta. More boring than fun. Most I simply said ‘no’ to. I can’t even imagine doing the stuff they have now. The furthest I will go now is the land of pot. I still haven’t even done edibles. I might try those for stress, and pain one day. Haven’t smoked in years. Your life is too important, just don’t. You have no idea what you’re getting these days. Be safe. Value your life. I’m not judging, but think hard if you are going to play this crazy game. As far as I’m concerned, the world is crazy enough, I don’t need to add to it. You don’t either. No need to add drama to your life.
This is Fentanyl:
Fentanyl, also spelled fentanil, is A POWERFUL OPIOID used as a pain medication and, together with other medications, for anesthesia. It is also used as a recreational drug, sometimes mixed with heroin, cocaine, or methamphetamine. Its potentially deadly overdose effects can be neutralized by naloxone.
China is the number one supplier of fentanyl to the United States. China is also the main supplier to Canada and Mexico. Cartels in the latter usually then smuggle it into the United States. After years of persistent efforts, the U.S.-China bilateral crackdown on opioid trafficking has started to see recent success.
