Taiwan Drug Busts

Now is the time to take note if any regular forumosa posters mysteriously disappear. :thinking:


This may help explain a lot of the crazy driving we see out there on the nation’s roads.

Speaking of mysterious disappearances, has anyone heard from @Andrew0409 recently?


He daren’t post now that his GFs posting here.


He’s got more than one? That could get tricky.


I have a note from TG to excuse me from possessive apostrophe’s. Its a clinical condition, apostrophe dyslexia.


I think your condition is even more serious than you realize. :sunglasses:


I cant’ see apost’rophe’s, thats the whole prob’lem.

This would be enough of the drug for 3 million customers, according to local media reports.

Or three tweekers with a week off?

That’s a lot.

That is a lot! Taiwan used to be a famous transhipment point, especially Kaohsiung
I suspect they import the raw materials from those countries also and then manufacture amphetamines in more remote places like Pingdong.
I wonder how many synthetics are being shipped

I was just watching ‘Dope’ on Netflix.

That’s the size of one shipment of cocaine out of Colombia.

Not suggesting any link between the countries, just mention it as over 8 months 5 tonnes seems not a huge quantity by comparison.

This is just the stuff they are intercepting.
Agree though don’t know if it’s a lot of not on the grand scale of things .

The article mentions heroin but not fentanyl, if that stuff starts coming in then the problems really start.

it’s significant for such a small market.

In anti-drug operations conducted from July 22 to Aug. 5, personnel from the six local agencies seized 2,571kg (5000lbs) of illegal drugs and raided 13 drug manufacturing plants.

This one still blows my mind.
Meth valued at US$ $204,360,000

The Criminal Investigation Bureau said that the seized materials can produce more than three tons of methamphetamine, with an estimated value of NT$6 billion (US$0.2 billion)

It blew my mind too :slight_smile:

6000lbs x US street value of $3000/lb = 18M USD

Not sure what the Asia street price is for meth but just used the US street price from the first google match I could find. Valuation seems way off…
