Chemical Warfare

Pharmaceutical fentanyl dosages are measured in micrograms. 288 micrograms should be sufficient to make a user feel pretty good all day.

Let’s say a major illegal drug supplier wants to boost product potency by lacing his whatever with bootleg fentanyl. Our hypothetical supplier is major, so he — through a network of distributors and street dealers — has one million end users.

That calls for one million 288mcg doses. That’s 288 grams. But he wants to keep enough on hand for 30 days of operations. More than that and he has too much tied up in inventory overhead, and risks losing it in a bust. 8,640 grams; 8.64 kilos.

Which she’s keeping solely for the sentimental value, a reminder of her beloved jihadi husband, and not the whole portable wealth thing. You know, when you fly out of the country, they ask about how cash you’re taking, but not jewelry.
