Northland Police have just seized almost a half tonne of Meth from operation in Far North.
Estimated $448 million...and change :o

That's got to be up there with the Mexican cartels.

I had already closed this topic and moved on when it struck me what I had read... ALMOST HALF A BILLION DOLLARS!! So every single person in New Zealand would have to spend $100 on meth to pay for all of that!

I read the article too.

It seems odd that they managed to get half a tonne of meth to NZ, but a) tried to land it by run about on a west coast beach; and B) didn't think offering people wads of cash to help launch said boat would be suspicious!

Wow that's impressive. Will it make a dent though?

Despite the police making more and bigger busts, meth continues to proliferate.

A recent study fund meth users in large urban centres in NZ can buy meth in less then 60 minutes.

That's better service than pizza companies.

I realize that it was rather ignorant of me, but I thought meth was a Stateside issue. I had no idea that ya'll had to deal with it too?

Yep it's a problem here. Fresh air and drinking piss isn't good enough for some people.
