Drug seizures of fentanyl, meth see uptick along southwest border: 与える

It’s also where Customs and Border Protection seized $ 1.2 million worth of cocaine and fentanyl on Oct. 1. That’s hardly a dent in the quantity of drugs making their way across the border through Texas and eventually to cities and states nationwide.

Just the amount of fentanyl just apprehended by the Texas Department of Public Safety just this year is more than enough to kill every man, woman and child in the states of Texas, California and New York,” said Texas Gov. グレッグ・アボット.

Most times fentanyl, a synthetic opioid often in the form of counterfeit pills, is manufactured in Mexico. Cartels then illegally bring the pills across the border to bigger cities like San Antonio. And from there, the pills could go across the country.
