This may explain why I've been feeling very energized since drinking “Tequila” on a cruise to Mexico this weekend.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) recently busted Rene Diaz and Veronica Carrasco of Oregon for drug trafficking.  The CHP had set up a drug stop on Interstate 5 in Fresno County when the vehicle driven by Diaz came through.  According to the news, “officers found 15 Mexican-brand tequila bottles that were actually filled with 56 pounds of liquid methamphetamine.”

Diaz and Carrasco are charged with federal drug trafficking and attempting to traffic across state lines.

Matt Radke, the spokesman for the CHP called this type of trafficking a “new trend of transportation.”  I don’t have much experience in drug trafficking but I have a feeling this isn’t a new method of smuggling drugs.

Drug Trafficking

Drug trafficking is a serious crime that carries with it substantial penalties. If the government can prove that the individual imported sold or transported an illegal drug, they may be convicted of drug trafficking.  Drug trafficking charges are commonly brought against those who deal in marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, and heroine among other illegal drugs.  Of course, the penalties for drug trafficking charges depend on the amount of the drug involved.

If you have been charged with drug trafficking or have questions about a legal matter, contact a Drug Trafficking Attorney near you.

I wonder what they did to the little worm inside the bottle…
