3 tons of meth "precusor" wouldn't even be enough meth to get a small town, like Wasilla Alaska, through a weekend.
Definitely small time operators.
Fair enough. Let's try 840 tons.
Mexico's army has made one of its biggest-ever drug busts, seizing a warehouse full of chemicals that experts say could have been used to make billions of dollars worth of methamphetamine.
Just under 840 tonnes of the chemicals used for making methamphetamine were found in a warehouse in an industrial area in Queretaro...
...It was the largest seizure of meth chemicals since President Felipe Calderon launched an army-led crackdown on Mexico's drug cartels shortly after taking office at the end of 2006.
...If the seized chemicals were processed in a sophisticated lab they could yield nearly 3.5 million doses, which would have a street value in the United States of nearly $28 billion, Islas calculated on the basis of current market prices.
Not even Wasilla could snort through $28 billion now that Bristol Palin's moved to the Failed State of Arizona.
