    The question is how many of these or similar shipments made it through... Crazy. That's a lot of drugs.

    I had to read that amount twice. With a drug usually measured per pill, to hear of it measured in tonnage... its mind-boggling. Wow.

    :p

    Their numbers are out, they assume a cost of ~$20 a pill (assuming each pill weighs 250mg). In dealer prices it's worth a tiny fraction of that.

    Actually, just a few weeks ago few a number of chaps were sentenced to record prison sentences for a drugs haul off the west coast of Ireland which occured in July last year.

    Like all good stories, it starts on a dark and stormy night. In July. A sodden character staggered up a rocky coast, soaked to the skin, hammered on a door and reported the sinking of his craft and the possible loss of his colleague. (Cue lashing rain, looming seas, gale force winds). A volunteer life boat service proceeded to put to sea in atrocious conditions, where they managed to locate said colleague on sinking craft , and rescued him at the possible cost of their lives. They also noticed an astonishing number of fleecy white bales bobbing in the stormy seas. The rescued man lay on the deck of the lifeboat which had rescued him, shocked, soaked, and swearing. Instead of thanking the crew who had rescued him at the possible cost of their lives, he swore, fluently and at length, staring at the bobbing bales.

    The coast guard arrived and took the saturated ones into custody. Initial valuations of the haul suggested €10 million, then €40 million, then €100 million. By the time the gentlemen in question received their record prison sentences a few short weeks ago, authorities had put the value of the haul as exceeding €440 million. It is certainly a record for our part of the world.

    There is a wonderful postscript. The craft stalled in stormy seas, because, wait for it, in an otherwise meticulously planned operation, they put diesel into an engine designed for petrol. Cheers

    I take offense to that. I'm gay, and I never have, nor will I ever use drugs. :mad:

    I'm sorry iGary, I just find that very...stereotypical and offensive.

    Anyway, that is great news that it isn't on the street.

    He didn't say that all gay men and ravers used ecstasy. But it certainly is a popular club drug, and and is particularly popular in the gay club scene. That's not stereotypical, it's a fact.

    Anyway, welcome back iGary!! We've missed you!

    also - did anyone see the CNN article about $1 billion worth of pot being grown in Sequoia National Forest? My goodness, that takes some gall.

    I forgot– part of the Internet Bill of Rights entitles everyone to never ever being offended. Moderators? Please, get this man a tissue and pat his back.

    Seriously. It is the internet, and some guy you'll never meet said that.

    Problem it is usually so so true, which is why the redneck jokes were always so funny.

    Even if it is a select group within ruining it for everyone else.

    Hope the cops aren't dumb enough to flush all that down the toilet. There'd be some crazy ass people lazying about the next day.
