(Reuters) - The Mexican army has seized just under 840 metric tonnes of chemicals used for manufacturing methamphetamine in a raid in central Mexico, one of the biggest finds of its kind ever made in the country.

Seized was 787 tonnes of phenylacetamide and 52.5 tonnes of tartaric acid, all in 25 kilogram (55 pound) packets.
In this story it is unclear whether or not they were attempting to make Meth there or whats more likely just sell the raw product to addicts who cook their own...
all I can say is damn... that's a lot of drugs... no wonder we cant stop the cartels... Hell I bet their operations are on scale with companies like Bayer and Pfizer...
