We should not be surprised. Drugs change hands where young people go for entertainment whether its in a nightclub in New York or London, or a music festival. Cambodia is no different

I think you are right with the statement, but there could be more cause for the sellers, and a easy trap to fall into if the person is desperate and needs money.
We see it over and over again on CEOCambodiaNews and for what we know it could be a fraction of what goes on. They also seem to be low time dealers, police in our home countries would have relentless interrogation interviews with a suspect to find out the source, how it came to be in the hands of that person. Looking at this one, it's one bag, not so many little ones we would see with the other photos of dealers. What would a price be on that bag of crazy crap, and money of 215,000 riels, that's about $53 it doesn't seem worth it. But looking at the photo, and she looks high, sure it wasn't only for personal use.

That would be similar to asking the extraordinary courts to prosecute all the Khmer Rouge for the atrocities committed.

Logical questions are often asked by members of CEO, but the answers are often complicated and never reported.

Even more disturbing to see some expat with a dime bag of weed being deported plastered across the universe.
I am concerned about the chinese tea kilos of ice being found. That is big money. It is enough to poison many souls.
In the USA they have confiscated enough fentanyl to kill millions of people. china is making that shit and shipping it to the cartels in mexico to bring across the porous border.
When you can make a hard drug instead of extract it from a plant it sure makes the process easier.
These small busts are typical.

Depends on your home country. In mine police are far too busy chasing speeding tickets. In fact according to the government figures less than 50% of reported crime is investigated, and when my house was robbed the police told me to go ask the neighbors if they saw anything. I had a lot of contact with our police because I worked with a legal firm. To be honest they couldn't give a stuff. Mosty of them seem to be on something anyway!

If your talking of the country of what you are holding the flag with your avatar at the side of your page I would say of the 50% of crime reported is nonsense or that of petty that does not warrant investigations, its only that of government bickering's that produces such percentages, backbench nobodies with the will to upset any balance just to have voice and still counted, one could say rightly they are the criminal for receiving ample payments for what they don't do for the countries people, but still it costs the people dearly one way or another. but here, I myself bicker with the political legal rights what we call the correct way of what our country votes upon, the so called peoples choice. Lowering the numbers of local policing because the year before crime rates were not rated has high as the year previously, but unfortunately they unpredicted the following years growth in criminal activities because of a fall in employment or increase in immigration, who can get the balance correct alone on estimations. Policing is worked on what matters to be of importance, more so when the force is limited in its workload and manpower. Serious crime must come first, petty crime will be on a back burner being too much expense made to the new lower budget. In one respect like your unfortunate predicament, if you are insured you have not totally lost, only the offender has got away for now, he may reoffend and be caught at a later date.

Most of them seem to be on something anyway! Are you suggesting most UK police officers are using illegal drugs? The definition of most is the greatest number.

I would say that none are on any illegal drugs whatsoever, if that was so they would not be on the police force for very long, so all their hard work and commitment to become that police officer and uphold the law for the British public would have all been a waste of time.

For clarification I was referring to most of the ones I had contact with in a professional capacity, not most of the police force in general as I try to avoid inreraction with them. mnay officrs have an alcohol problem and are not adverse to the odd spliff. Police policy at one point was to reserve police officer vacancise for retunring military vets who also have a higher than average mental issues due to trauma related to service service. There is somethign seriously wrong when police drive arrested persons in a black maria up and down streets with bumps when they are not on the way to the station
