Ouch, this is gonna Hurt (Huge 1.5 Tonnes of Cannabis Bust)

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.

Depends on your perspective. It's a drop in the ocean compared to the size of the market.

Fair enough, it's amazing how much not-very-good weed can be sowed and reaped on land owned/rented or commandeered by RCAF/5-0 affiliated peasants.

Somebody who I know very well visited such a place once with an army honcho for the lols. They were trying to flog kilos for $100 to a passing whitey, so I'd imagine there's a bulk buyers discount available somewhere.

this was weed brought down from Laos and they were busted with packaging equipment as well,
it is obviously for export not rag weed for local consumption

if anyone lost a 2 ton shipment, its not merely a drop in the ocean and they will be very pissed as there was lots of time/effort /$$ involved.

ahh the stories i could tell but....... :beer3:

It seems a bit odd to declare that 'Oh no this is evil Laotian weed, definitely not planted in clean Cambodian soil, no way!"

Obviously, having read Howard Marks, I fully understand that anything is possible. It's just that's quite a large shipment of stinking stuff to transport over the border and all the way down to PP.

But, anything can/will happen with reefer madness and stuff.

as i said; some one is going to be hurt with this loss
The raids netted 1,487 kilograms of dried marijuana and 1.5 kilograms of concentrated marijuana oil, along with equipment for processing the drug.
“It was [put in] a high-tech wrapping in order to distribute it to the third countries for a high price.
The seized marijuana costs about $7 million, and for the seized marijuana oil, it is estimated that it costs $50 per gram” for a total of $75,000, Saman said.
According to Saman, the people behind the alleged smuggling ring are believed to be based in Europe, though police had previously believed the drugs would be distributed locally.
Prices a bit off but still ....
