British Man Arrested in Kampot for Drug Traffic

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

My original post "My, we do have some well-informed members here, don't we", was just an off the cuff smart arse comment which seems to have been taken incorrectly by some. God only knows why.

Considering the context the comment was banter of the highest hilarity. Don’t know what all the fuss is about. Everyone need to chill and get a drink. I’m buying one for Username.

How much do you pay for 250gm in Eu?
3 years ago, mdma was around 15 quid a gram back in south england
About the same in Amsterdam. €20 a gram back in 2016.
Are you sure you arent mixing them up with price per pill? This UK site says around 40 pounds per gram is average.

Dunno about today, but in my pill taking prime 14-17 years ago it was ten pills for fifty euro, so I'm fairly sure that's a per gram price

I am just curious really to work out what he stood to make. if it sells for $10 per gram that's approx $2,600 $100 per gram is $26,000 not a massive amount for the risk and potential 15-20 years in Jail.
