And well aged poutine.

2. I doubt there's a single entry point to the US

through which contraband does not flow.

3. Not unless the republicans decide to build another wall, then it will be a dire

situation. Long overdue for money to build a big beautiful wall.

4. Lots and lots. Only some of them are by prescription.

 

The "wall" isn't about immigration. It's not about drugs. It's not even about a wall.

It's about buying billions of dollars of steel from Russian Oligarchs.

5. The majority of smuggled drugs come through legal points of entry.

6. yes, it has been well documenyed....

Even the tv show drugs inc. had an episode on it...

It used to be cannabis, but more recently cocaine, opiates/phentonyl and meth.

But that is a cottage industry. Small market stuff. The real bulk comes into container ports. By the ton, not by the backpack, or car, or truck.

And the "wall" does nothing for any of it.. It just makes russians richer.

7. Probably.

If there is a demand, there will be a supply. It's that simple. No wall, no nothing will stop that demand from being met. The supply will come in through one of the 8,800 miles around the US border or by air. Either way there is too much money to be made. I recall reading a report that said the cartels could have 90% of their shipments intercepted and still make a profit.

8. The fentanyl comes across the Canadian border.

It's being trafficked in from China. They're working on it, but it's still an issue.

10. Our own military has been smuggling drugs- 2 Green Berets pleaded guilty recently

https://www.newsweek.com/us-soldiers-guilty-smuggling-cocaine-colombia-1282131

January 7 2019:

"Two American special forces soldiers have pled guilty to conspiring to transport $1 million worth of cocaine from Colombia to the United States aboard a military transport plane.

Former Master Sergeant Daniel Gould, 36, and Sergeant 1st Class Henry Royer, 35, who were both Army Green Berets, were caught when they attempted to transport 90 pounds of cocaine via a military aircraft last year, Army Times reported this weekend. According to the report, the soldiers had already successfully trafficked a large quantity of the illicit drug from the South American country in the past, selling it to a distributor in Florida.

Gould and Royer had previously transported 22 pounds of cocaine from the Colombian city of Cali to northwest Florida. They reportedly used a hollowed-out punching bag to conceal the drugs, which were transported to the U.S. In a bid to reinvest the money they made from the sale and make a larger profit, the two men attempted to traffic a larger quantity when they were caught"
