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.

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.
Amsterdam with some connections would be the cheapest, or one of the cheapest places in the world to source and buy such a product. Everything increases in price once you start transporting it. When its over borders and not legal the the the price increases significantly. Nobody is selling MDMA for $10 a gram in Kampot, or anywhere else in Asia. A gram isn't something you can get through in a night like an E or a gram of coke, apparently. Your maths are all wrong.
my maths are not wrong sir, I have asked how much it would be selling for, I have no knowledge of the subject of prices, I speculated a $100 per gram others have said much much lower. If you have some knowledge of price per gram then please share. As for the maths 10 x 260 = 2600 (rounded the grams up) or 100 x 260 = 26000 - unless you have some alternative calculating system?
so presumably the amount this guy stood to make is within those ranges. if its $50 a gram it is $13000, - either way even at the top end it is not a lot of money to risk your freedom for,

So instead of snarky comments perhaps contribute something useful into the discussion, especially as you clearly seem to have some knowledge of this.
We paid €80 for 4gms in 2016. I’d speculate that prices might fluctuate by country, by supply route and all manner of different economic influencers. Weed was cheap as chips in the cafes of Amsterdam. I have no idea about the price of heroin or Colombian Marching Powder as I didn’t buy any. Nor pills, so can’t comment on those either. I would hazard that the mark-up to the dealer would have been worth his while at €20 per gram. Mind you, it was delivered by (I guess) the equivalent of a courier. So the dealer had an extra layer of cost and it was still €20. Either he was a “pile it high, sell it cheap” kind of guy. Or he was making ample profit at €20 to satisfy his needs.
1 grm = apx 8=12 pills as recommended dose is 80-140 mgs. Average dose of MDMA is ur weight in kilos + 50
so if u weighed 70 kilos u'd take 120 mgs
There is no way any normal human could take a gram of MDMA in a night

A quick search turns up
If it’s crystal mdma in a capsule, these can go for about $10 to $20 a pop for about 100–150mg.

In the Netherlands, they are pretty much always €5 each and are typically between 175 mg-205 mg per pill
From my own personal experience of buying in California, a regular pill of ecstasy, normal strength, is $10, just the same as a capsule of molly which is consider to be more pure mdma.

Thank you PR thats some useful information - so potentially if we go for the median for simple math = 10 caps per gram so each gram could make approx $100-$200, I would imagine they would sell for $10, $15 or $20 rather than any other random figure. So high end return off his 260 gram is $52,000 mid range $39,000 lower end $26,000. Less of course what he purchased for originally.

something to also to keep in mind that its estimated that lots of MDMA sold is not MDMA
so if its not pure and cut with ... he could make a lot of $$ :beer3:

Unfortunately, your “MDMA”, “Molly” or Ecstasy is probably not pure MDMA. This 2005 paper found that 61% of tested ecstasy tablets contained other drugs. And a massive 46% contained 0% MDMA.10

87% of “Molly” analyzed by the DEA between 2009 and 2013 contained 0% MDMA, instead mostly containing “bath salts.”4 😔

These other substances that are mixed in with MDMA can have worse side effects than pure MDMA

Here he is, mr know it all strikes again @phuketrichard
People here are talking from experience, not going from what the internet tells them. Depending on how big a night you’re having it is perfectly realistic to down a gram in a night.
On a side note, might have to move to Amsterdam. Can go for up to $350 In aus :D

Anyone who checks them.figures has never dabbled in class a
I regulaly consumed 3 or 4 pills a night in the day. Usually double dropping.
Charlie, in a day 2-3 grams was easy before your nose closed up and it became pointless.
I am pretty sure the only thing you put up your nose is your finger, and i am equally sure the only thing you double dropped is your ego pretending to be a player in the past.

Not really, you may not like him, but he was all over Asia before you were even a twinkle in your mom's eye. You have no idea, so please put your ill-informed ideas elsewhere.
