(NationalSentinel) The Mexican navy has managed to intercept tens of thousands of pounds of deadly fentanyl that was mislabeled aboard a Danish-flagged cargo ship from Shanghai, China.

According to reports, the cargo manifest for the 40-foot ocean container claimed that powder content within was 23,368 kilograms of inorganic calcium chloride, which is used most often as an electrolyte in sports drinks, bottled water, beverages, and as a non-sodium pickle flavoring.

If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 

The Mexican navy managed to intercept the unloaded cargo container August 24 as it was enroute to the Sinaloa Cartel base of Culiacan, about 300 miles from the port.

According to local media, the Navy alerted customs authorities from nearby City of Lazaro Cardenas. Authorities collected samples from plain bulk-bags were taken to a laboratory that confirmed the powder was fentanyl. In all, 52,000 pounds were seized.

While officials are still testing the purity of the fentanyl, if it turns out to be of pharmacy-grade quality, as suspected, it could be pressed into tens of millions of tablets.

The Epoch Times notes:

Fentanyl synthetic-opioid was hailed as a wonder drug 50 years ago when it was approved as a more effective treatment than drip morphine for cancer patients’ pain. With four types of opioid receptors throughout the human body, pharmacological fentanyl is more effective attaching faster to all the receptors than the highest purity of illicit street-heroin.


Drug cartels favor fentanyl or fentanyl precursors imported from China because it can be diluted with fillers and marketed by street-dealers as cocaine, heroin or meth. Fentanyl can also be pressed into pills and sold on the street as oxycodone.

The real danger behind fentanyl is its strength. The National Institute on Drug Abuse advises that pharmaceutical-grade fentanyl is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine.

Also, fentanyl is extremely dangerous to handle because as little as 0.25 milligrams absorbed through skin contact can be lethal.

Breitbart News’ Texas news bureau reported last week that the Mexican army, federal police, and investigative personnel with the attorney general’s (FGR) office raided a Sinaloa Drug Cartel lab at a residence in the northwest section of Culiacan.
