A member of the leadership team for the West Baton Rouge Chamber of Commerce is on a leave of absence from the organization after being arrested at the U.S.–Mexico border on drug charges Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2020.
Marie Brand was busted at the border while attempting to come back into the U.S. from Mexico. She was arrested for allegedly smuggling a highly addictive narcotic back into Texas.
quote:

According to arrest records the 9News Investigators requested from the arresting agency, deputies with the Hidalgo County Constable’s Office caught her with a purse full of pills. The report alleges she lined her purse with more than 500 grams of Tramadol, which totaled approximately 1,564 pills.
When asked about the drugs, Brand told officers she drove to Mexico to pick up the pills for her hip and that she wanted to get enough for a year. She was charged with possession of schedule III narcotics and got out of jail the next day on a $15,000 bond. Gangsta

I don't blame her at all. Medication is cheaper in Mexico and when you have to take 2000 mg of Tramadol a day the costs justify the risk.

I kind of believe her story, nobody goes to Mexico with the intention of smuggling drugs and only gets tramadol. Certainly not someone heavily into opiates

It’s like Tylenol except it can give you seizures. You can’t really get high off of it. Docs prescribe it because they are scared to write a script for opiates. Tramadol is supposed to be some sort of synthetic opiate substitute but it’s absolute crap and has nasty side effects like seizures.

Weak. If you're gonna mule something back across the border, why not "real" opiates? Get a few thousand MGs of hydrocodone and make it worthwhile.

FWIW, SWIM says that class 2 narcotics are difficult to obtain in Mexico. Apparently you can get just about everything EXCEPT real opiates.
