    while this meth likely came from mexico it may do well to remember that according to the DEA approx 75 to 85 percent of the meth sold in the us is manufactured here. You can try to turn this one bust into a platform for border enforcement but if it was truly the sale of meth you where worried about you would focus on our home grown meth makers.

    Sleep better, ha? He might sleep better and contented for bringing down 41 pounds of meth and millions of dollars loot but we are put on an heightened alert for increased home invasion, home robberies, muggings, and death threats.

    The street value of meth just tripled and where do they think the addicts get their money from to buy their drugs? The 41 lbs. is a days work for the drug lords and there's hundreds of pounds out there that is still for sale by street vendors.

    Does Utah, SLC, and WVC consider drug vendors as legal entrepreneurs for a city's economy as it redistributes the wealth of rich home owners with vagrant drug addicts and illegal foreign nationals rights as spoils of a war from a defeated America? The addicts are the criminals they must chase, arrest, and put in prison for life.

    Militarize the border where they belong. It doesn't make sense to put the military thousands of miles behind the front line of the battles chasing ghosts, front line engagements are more effective. Does it make sense to tell soldiers go catch falling bombs before they hit the ground and explode?

    It will be interesting to see who the suspected drug traffickers are, when their names and homes are released.

    We know from the story that the drugs came from Mexico. That alone should be incentive to secure the borders. We can talk more when the traffickers are identified to look at other steps to get this deadly drug off our streets.
