When someone tries to smuggle something into Texas, it's simply not a good idea.

According to the United States Department of Justice, certain people try to smuggle different drugs into both the state and country. Examples given include cocaine, heroin, marijuana, and methamphetamine. Recently, one drug has brought many eyes upon it.

Fentanyl has been making headlines in the state for how powerful the drug can be. Due to various organizations making illegal copies of the substance, some have lost their lives ingesting it. Others attempt to bring the manufactured copies into the state.

Recently, one woman attempted to bring the drug into the states via an unorthodox manner.
