fairytale cinderella trafficking

The Cape May County Correctional Center recently broken up a "fairytale" drug trafficking operation that used children's coloring books featuring Cinderella and Snow White to smuggle drugs into jail. The operation used a dissolved solution of narcotics which was made into a paste and then painted onto the coloring book pages and mailed to the inmates. The coloring pages, seemed like an innocent correspondent and were even addressed "to Daddy" and signed "from Emma Lee." The authorities were tipped off on the operation and shut it down.

The main drug in the paste was Suboxone. Suboxone is used to treat opioid addiction and contains a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is an opioid medication. Buprenorphine is similar to other opioids such as morphine, codeine, and heroin. Naloxone blocks the effects of opioids such as morphine, codeine, and heroin.
