DEA Makes Largest Meth Bust in History

Hubert Collins, American Renaissance, October 16, 2020

Yesterday, the DEA announced that a sweep of stash houses in California turned up:

  • 13 pounds of heroin
  • 893 pounds of cocaine
  • 2,224 pounds of meth

That was a new record for meth seized by law enforcement in America.

Biggest Meth Bust Ever

Lethal meth overdose quantities vary, but typically, all it takes is 150 mg orally, 100 mg injected, or 50 mg smoked — so at an average of 100mg. 2,224 pounds is 1,008,789,430.88 milligrams — over 10,000,000 lethal doses. The average street value of one pound of meth is $3,000, making the value of this bust $6,672,000 — and that’s without the heroin and cocaine. These drugs belonged to the Sinaloa Mexican drug cartel, which is now millions of dollars poorer than it was last week.

Illegal drugs fuel the “deaths of despair” that kill so many white Americans:

The men making these arrests are heroes.
