Mexico seizes 25 tons of Fentanyl

The Mexican government announced the major fentanyl seizure of 25.75 tons (23,368 kilograms or 51,517 pounds) of powdered fentanyl that originated in Shanghai China and was headed to Culiacán, Sinaloa, the home base for the Sinaloa Cartel.
The Sinaloa cartel has stepped up production for the U.S. drug market.
Cops found the cargo inside a container of a Danish flagged vessel with a cargo manifest saying contents consisted of calcium chloride. Authorities took a random sampling of the powdered substance which tested positive for fentanyl. Officials seized a total of 931 sacks of the substance.

Powered fentanyl is mass-produced into the black market oxycodone M-30’s known as 'Mexican Oxy.'
