A huge ecstasy bust just went down in Canada. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police searched a British Columbia drug lab uncovering large quantities of MDMA (molly), ecstasy and crystal meth. The RCMP say that this may be the biggest lab they’ve ever busted, finding “commercial mixers and 200-litre drums producing millions of dollars worth of drugs per week and housing enough chemicals to level a city block.” The lab was discovered after people were seen running from a fire that ignited in it. They have come to find that the lab was being run by a motorcycle gang and it is suspected that they were transporting drugs into the United States and other areas.
RCMP investigators say that 60 kilograms of ecstasy have been found so far at the lab. This is enough to get 60,000 X popper “rolling.” It’s said to be worth $3 million on the street.Police say that this is, so far, the second biggest seizure of ecstasy in the history of British Columbia. This amount is expected to climb as investigators have uncovered this much after days of searching.
Authorities are also concerned about the set up. The chemicals used to make meth are dangerous and a huge tragedy could have happened. “The explosion — the amount of chemicals that I read that were involved in this — could level a city block. You could have death and destruction from that,” said forensic drug expert Wayne Jeffrey. He suggests that authorities be more wary of the chemicals they allow in and out of their ordinances. “We say ‘no chemicals, no drugs.’ If you can prevent the chemicals coming into the country, you can prevent the manufacture of those drugs.”
