Although id probably take a few dozen wads of cash myself.

It was $200 mil when they took the picture, probably more like $300 million beforehand.

Semesky said $100 bills are the preferred method for making large payments between drug organizations, because they are less bulky. With $20 bills, $1 million weighs 110 pounds.

"They don't want to build a storage location for 20s," the DEA's Semesky said of the drug traffickers. "You're talking about decreasing that bulk at least five times."

100$ / 20$ = 5 (Im pretty sure the bills weigh the same individually)

Where are they getting 100$/20$ >= 5 ??

Edit:
Maybe the weight saved from having to rubber band less stacks? (The weight of the rubber bands?)

So the 10 million illegals in California & Texas will be getting from the Mexico Govt a $20 bus ticket back home, right?

Actually it's a myth that it rots your teeth, it's just that the worst addicts eat like crap and don't brush/floss. Mine are fine.

are you seriously asking how 5x $20 bills weigh more/ takes more space than 1x $ 100 bill?

Not sure about teeth, but I'd be quite surprised if it doesn't at least rot your brain a little bit.

while its true that it isn't the primary agent rotting your teeth, it is certainly an accelerant

No, he's asking how 5x $20 bills weigh more than 5x more than 1x $100 bill, as implied by the bolded parts of the article that he quoted
