San Felipe doesn't really seem like a city where much happens.  It seems like an off the radar type of town.  Is it just used as a staging ground of sorts, before they throw shipments at the border? Sort of like Puerto Penasco?  From San Felipe its a straight shot to Mexicali and a bit further to TJ.  Im not sure how patrolled the sea of Cortez is, but couldn't you send shipments from Sinaloa, or La Paz by boat up through the Cortez to San Felipe?  And then on towards the US.  

I honestly have no idea, but this is just a theory I thought of based on simple geography.

Yeah, she was based in TJ and lost a big load coming into San Felipe from Sinaloa. It's definitely an old beachhead for boats bringing in product.

What's the deal with the seeds though?  Seems like an odd place to find them.  Can you grow poppy in Baja?

Yes, poppy can grown be just about anywhere that is hot and suitable for growing vegetables, from Iowa to Argentina.

Actually, Spain is the second largest producer of legal opium poppy and it is grown around Seville, which sits near the 37th parallel north, roughly equal in latitude to San Francisco or Colorado City. It is also extensively cultivate in the UK in Dorset at 50 degrees north, and Tasmania is the largest legal producer of opium poppy, and their fields are located on the 41st parallel south.

In Tasmania the industry is highly efficient. It produces about 50% of the world's concentrated poppy straw for morphine and related opiates from merely 10.7% of the world production area.

by going that far north and in baja with loads they can cross over to the pacific side near ensenada or up through mexicali with fewer retens than going overland through several states on mex 15.  and there is an airport there.

San Felipe was hot this weekend. Everyone was there for Memorial Day weekend and it's usually a quiet place with hardly any of the army there but the army was everywhere and searching everyone going into the popular Rockodile night club
