In Markham, Ontario about half a billion dollars in estacy was seized by police who say that they've made the largest ever ecstacy bust.
Seven men from British Columbia were arrested along with the seizure of a large quantity of cash. York Regional Police Chief Armand La Barge said that the amount of product seized is large enough to fill an entire room.

Police in Markham, just northeast of Toronto, say they've made the largest ever Canadian ecstasy bust, seizing drugs with a potential street value of half a billion dollars.

An investigation culminated "with the arrest of seven men from British Columbia, and the seizure of a quantity of cash, hashish and over 1,000 kilograms of liquid and powder MDMA or ecstasy," York Regional Police Chief Armand La Barge told reporters.

The chief added that the value of the drugs is conservatively estimated to be "in excess of $100 million and could conceivably yield a profit in excess of a half a billion dollars."

If I had to total the amount of crime and corruption that takes place in north america alone, it would probably total in excess of 100 million. There is so much crime taking place in this world both unreported and reported that no one can keep up with it. It is a pitiful shame that the (Drug Industry) even though not a legitimate one is here to stay. It won't go away no matter how many drug busts there are. Because if you solve one crime, there will probably be ten to twenty that will go unsolved.

If you look hard enough, you can see faces in clouds everywhere, but on the other hand it is quite common (at least in Holland) for drugdealers to buy their wives some expensive clothes store for "fun" and also to launder some cash.

Usually these female shopowners don't work very much, usually they drop by in their BMW-X5 or Porsche Cheyenne 2-3 times a week to bitch around the other salesgirls ("supervision") after wich they grab a pile of money and go either to some fashionshow in milan or to the nailstudio hehe.
