8,000 ecstasy pills seized by Customs
Septemember 8, 2005 - nogalesinternational.com

U.S. Customs officers seized a large amount of the drug ecstasy Sept. 3 at the Mariposa Port of Entry.

Maria Lopez-Canez was arrested after officers allegedly found more than 8,000 pills stashed in her vehicle, said Customs and Border Protection spokesman Brian Levin.

Lopez-Canez arrived at the port, intending to enter the United States. A Customs officer who initially interviewed her became suspicious and referred her for secondary inspection. Officers went through her vehicle, and allegedly found a large bag of pills hidden inside.

The drugs had an approximate street value of $237,000, Levin said.

Large amounts of ecstasy are not often seized here, said James Tong, port director.

"We don't usually see contraband of this type in Nogales, especially not in a quantity of this size," he said, adding, "This is a significant quantity of pills that might otherwise been in the hands of those wishing to harm our children.

Worth $237,000

According to information on the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration's Web site, ecstasy is a hallucinogenic stimulant that is usually found in pill form. Users can become dependent on it, and may experience tremors, confusion, anxiety, increased heart rate and blood pressure. Negative effects can last from six months to a year after an ecstasy user has stopped taking the drug.

The DEA reports that, in 2000, 2.6 percent of 10th grade students, and 3.6 percent of 12th grade students reported using ecstasy.

Wow, $237k sounds pretty steep for that many pills. Thats pretty much $30 a piece ><.

Glad the DEA isn't a dealer :P.

OMG the children could be harmed! :shocked:

How about they seize automobiles from factories because they could in fact, harm the children?
