A teenage boy from Tijuana died drinking liquid methamphetamine at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, according to autopsy results released Wednesday by the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office.

Cruz Marcelino Velazquez Acevedo, 16, was walking from Mexico to the United States last November and ingested the mixture to prove it was not apple juice, the report found.

The report does not indicate whether inspectors asked Acevedo to drink the liquid.

Acevedo died a little over an hour after drinking meth at 8:57 p.m. Nov. 18 at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center.

'...ingested the mixture to prove it was not apple juice...' that's probably suppose to say 'to prove to the agents it was apple juice'... does meth usually come in liquid form? is that how they take the stuff..??? i thought it was smoked or snorted or shot up or something...

First I'm hearing of the liquid form as well. If Breaking Bad was at all accurate the greatest proportion of the precursor chemicals for meth are liquid. Maybe easier to transport clandestinely in liquid form, vice powdered or rocked? Did that crap in the early '80's. Wouldn't touch it again for anything. At my age, eight hours of uninterrupted sleep is far more rewarding than 3 days of half finished projects and paranoia. Besides, one Redbull makes me grind my teeth these days.

Methamphetamine Oil is becoming popular ever since the invention of the e-cigarette --- as is Marijuana Oil ------ you didn't think it was just Nicotine Oil being smoked did you ???

As a side note I just saw a news story of Heroin being put in capsules --- much cheaper than Oxycontin ...
