Drug mules have come a long way — from smuggling cocaine in their stomachs to smuggling it in their breast implants around the world… YES, breast implants.
Guadalupe Luin, a woman from Mexico, was one of these women. She was recently busted in Medellín, Colombia trying to smuggle out 1,400 grams of liquid cocaine in her breast implants. That’s roughly a $24,000 boob job.
“The suspect voluntarily agreed to get an x-ray, which showed breast implants that had a different color than normal implants,” police said.
Now she faces 4 to 12 years in a Colombian prison. LBH, she’s probably not the only one trying to smuggle the drugs out because Colombia’s cocaine production has almost doubled in the last year. Some experts blame the slowing economy in the country due to lower oil prices and others say it’s the increase in price of the coca leaf.
One thing is for sure, boob job or not, cocaine will be smuggled out.

Giant estates with swimming pools and escape tunnels, a ranch surrounded by acres of land, and a chic luxury apartment with a terrifying history were among the 27 properties Mexico had seized from drug traffickers and others auctioned on Sunday.
The government is seizing property and selling it at auction.
The apartments auctioned on Sunday include one of a cartel leader who was killed there and disposed of by his brothers.
The government is also selling off land. The cheapest is a lot in Culiacán, Sinaloa, priced at about $11,200 USD, while the most expensive is the Rancho Los Tres García in Naucalpan, México state, priced at over $1.6 million USD. It was confiscated from convicted drug trafficker Carlos Montemayor, father-in-law of Edgar “La Barbie” Valdez Villarreal, after he was arrested in 2010.
According to Mexican media, the auction raised $56.6 million pesos (or about $3 million USD) of the 167m pesos predicted.
The Mexican President pledged that all the money raised from the auctions would go to benefit impoverished communities.
According to Lopez-Obrador (AMLO), the proceeds from the auction of properties and land, which had been seized by previous governments, would go to aid marginalized communities in the poor and violent state of Guerrero.
“Buyers will know that in addition to acquiring a good deal, they will also be doing good, that is, they will be helping those who need support because of the situation of poverty and marginalization they suffer,” AMLO said Friday.
In one of his first acts in office, Lopez Obrador enforced an austerity plan.
AMLO sold government-owned vehicles and even planned on selling the president’s brand new Boeing 787 jetliner. He also dismissed the Presidential Guard, which is tasked with protecting the president, and declined to move into Los Pinos – Mexico’s version of the White House – and instead lives in his private home.
In a similar auction at the end of May, Mexican authorities raised $1.5 million from the sales of 82 vehicles, including a Lamborghini and other assets seized from criminals and at least one former politician.
The late-May auction saw 800 bidders, with the money raised going to two poor communities in the southern state of Oaxaca to improve roads and schools. Seventeen black, bulletproof Chevrolet Suburbans were also up for auction but it was the muscle cars and vintage VWs that got all the attention.
Reactions on Twitter were pretty mixed.
A pretty common sentiment across Twitter was that people just wouldn’t feel safe moving into a home that had been seized from a former drug lord. I mean just think of all the risk that carries with it. Like that drug lord still has connections, still has friends – there are still people that are aware of its history. Maybe they’d show up wanting to take it for themselves at some point.
But everyone agreed that giving the proceeds of the auction to help the poor was the right move.
Especially since the communities that will benefit from these proceeds are in violence plagued Guerrero state – a state that has suffered greatly because of the Drug War.
How many times do we women say they’re not in the mood and blame it on a headache or that time of the month? It’s a common enough occurrence that sure has frustrated some men for centuries. Men don’t necessarily have that excuse, and that changed in 1996 when Viagra was officially patented and then approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) two years later.
Now 23 years later, women who are just not in the mood to get busy will be able to remedy that within 45 minutes.
The FDA just approved a new drug called Vyleesi that is the equivalent of Viagra but for women.
In 2015, researchers released a groundbreaking Viagra-type drug for women called Addyi. However, that drug had many issues. Women would have to take it every day and not consume any alcohol because a side effect could result in fainting. Vyleesi is different because women can take it 45 minutes before sexual intercourse, and experience minimal side effects.
According to The New York Times, 40 percent of the women that participated in the study for Vyleesi said they experienced nausea, and one percent of women said they had “darkening in their gums and parts of their skin, which did not go away in about half of the patients after they stopped treatment.”
They also suggest women who have high blood pressure or cardiovascular disease should not take Vyleesi. About 18 percent of the women dropped out of the study because of nausea. The biggest drawback appears that Vyleesi doesn’t come in a pill, but rather an injection.
Some claim that this drug will only enforce the notion that women must have sex with their partners despite not wanting to, and it has nothing to do with not being in the mood.
Some medical professionals say that women “not being in the mood for sex” doesn’t necessarily have to do with having a low sex drive but rather dealing with another range of emotions from stress, depression, and a slew of other mental health issues. This new drug will just reinforce that women must comply with their duties as partners and give in to sex.
“[Women] oftentimes having mercy or duty sex because they want to maintain their relationship,” Dr. Julie Krop, of AMAG Pharmaceuticals said to The New York Times. “The problem is, they’re distressed about having that sex that they are having.”
