Tesla Branded Cocaine?
The Sinaloa Cartel is Rebranding Cocaine

Not to long ago Elon Musk made a joke about purchasing Coca-Cola just so that he could put the cocaine back into it. Obviously he did not purchase Coca-Cola but the joke was heard loud and clear by the Sinaloa Cartel who is now branding packages of cocaine with the Telsa logo as well as the Prada Label.
It’s actually quite ingenious and as it turns out, in Mexico City authorities busted 4 men who were in the midst of moving 1.6 tons of cocaine through the capital earlier this week. The police in Mexico City have increased police operations against the Sinaloa Cartel operatives that are found to be working in and around Mexico City.
The cocaine had been found in 2 tractor trailers, along with a 3rd vehicle that was staged in an effort to protect the shipments. During the bust authorities found the drug’s packaging were stamped with the logos of Tesla and Prada.
It is rumoured that this is one of the largest bust for Mexico City and that whilst some of the drugs were en route to the Tepito neighbourhood, a good portion of the drugs were also earmarked to be sent here to the United States.
Sadly sometimes Red Bull does not give you wings and you need a little something stronger.
Whilst authorities were somewhat hesitant to truly identify the 4 men who had been arrested as being part of the Sinaloa Cartel, local media in Mexico City were quick to point that the 4 men in fact are part of the Sinaloa Cartel.
It is said that the Mexico City police force is as war with the Sinaloa Cartel, on July the 12th the police engaged the cartel in a rather bloody shootout through the southern part of Mexico City, where 150 police thought it would be a good idea to engage the cartel in a gun battle. The cartel however, was found to be well armed and quite ready for the police.
The Sinaloa Cartel was found to have a 50 caliber sniper rifle, grenades, and cache of numerous guns and high powered rifles. This left 14 alleged Sinaloa Cartel members arrested and later released due to lack of evidence while 4 officers were injured.
Perhaps next time the police will have a better thought out plan other than engaging the cartel in a dangerous gun battle in the streets of Mexico City.
I’m not sure how Elon Musk or Mario Prada feel about this but I give the Cartel a thumbs up here for the rebranding effort.
