I saw on the local TV news yesterday, that NZ police have seized another large Meth/P haul; 17kgs. It was reported that it has a street value of $(NZ)17 million ($1000 per gram). The Police like to tag these seizures with massive black-market ‘street values’, so they can use it to say ‘how much DRUG-harm they have reduced !’
The Counties/Manukau (Sth Auckland) Police have laid importation & supply charges against 3 members of the ‘Bandidoes’ motor cycle gang, apparently from the Thailand chapter ? The spokesperson reported that the precursors for this drug are often coming in from Asia (mostly China).
It does seem that the Police focus has moved off Cannabis (class C) & onto stopping the supply of this more harmful (class A) drug.
