Chemicals for one billion ecstasy pills seized in the Netherlands

February 10, 2017

The massive haul included 100 bottles of hydrogen gas, 15 tonnes of caustic soda and 3,000 litres of other chemicals.

Local police say the value of the raw materials ran into hundreds of thousands of euros, and the HGV was probably being used as a storage facility for an ecstasy laboratory.

It is believed some of the chemicals were stolen, as the canisters of hydrogen gas found on board cannot be purchased publicly.

Officers in the southern province of Zeeland began investigating the lorry because it had not moved from a parking space for a long time.

The Netherlands is known as one of the world's manufacturing centres for ecstasy, which is a Class A drug.

Earlier this week, a report for the British charity DrugWise warned that drugs including ecstasy are being sold at unprecedented levels of purity in the UK.

Dutch police have seized a truckload of chemicals they say could have produced up to one billion ecstasy pills.
Police from the Netherland's Zeeland province told CNN more than 100 bottles of hydrogen gas, 15,000 kilograms (33,069 pounds) of caustic soda and 3,000 liters of other raw materials were found in a tractor trailer in Rilland, 40 kilometers north of the of the Belgium border on Thursday night.
A civil servant from a nearby municipality noticed the truck hadn't moved from the trucker's parking lot for days, and the authorities were called to investigate.
The police estimate the chemicals alone are worth around several hundred thousand euros -- the largest seizure of raw materials the force has ever recorded.
The bust came a day after 35 cans of chemical waste -- believed to be drug runoff from an illegal ecstasy laboratory -- were found in the same town. Police told CNN they are investigating both incidents and that no arrests have been made so far.
The Netherlands is one of the world's major hubs for ecstasy production and distribution. According to the European Monitoring Center for Drugs and Drug Addiction, production of the popular party drug is on the rise in the Netherlands and neighboring Belgium, with underground laboratories becoming larger and more professional.

'warned that MDMA is being sold at unprecedented purity...'

Surely, that is nothing but a good thing? what would the filth think better? pills that are full of PMA or PMMA? dirty, amphetamine/meth bombs? piperazine based shite? if people are going to take it, and they are, regardless of the opinion of verminous LE trash, surely, it is a far better thing for the product to be purer and cleaner, than it is for it to be dirty muck. If nothing else, bar massive overdoses, or hyponatraemia due to people knowing to drink lots of fluid whilst raving, but not realizing it needs to contain electrolytes to replace those lost there will be far fewer deaths.

Warnings, should be left for bad pills, not good pills. v

Still pretty popular down UK ways. We've long been fond of the ol' beans. Well, say 'we', not hugely into entactogens for regular usage personally, but for 'legitimately' therapeutic  purposes, some of them have been a big help. With PTSD in particular, although AMT was the tool of choice in besting it. Still remember the first time on MDMA though. And on methylone. Although the latter was...not nearly for so good a reason. Commercial  product, tainted with triphenylphosphine, spent the next few days coughing blood. But the first time on pills, in Tsath's teens, quite a bash that was, although he did end up having to more or less carry some 13yo girl to the toilet for her to make room for more booze, whilst gurning manically, and courtesy of a couple of bottles of ether and some home-made yopo snuff not so steady on his feet either. Still, it was about good manners, if that makes sense, better that than have her throw up somewhere undignified, or get her hair in it etc.

Still remember that party after all these years, they say you don't forget your first time, not that Toady will ever forget the several week-long sleepless hangover after dramatically underestimating the potency of some really cheap amphetamine, the pasty stuff around in the '90s and thenabouts with the funky smell to it? at 3 grams for a tenner, wasn't expecting much, but what Tsath' didn't know, that it apparently, was courtesy of the seller being a close friend of the hostess'es mother. 3 grams of that stuff within perhaps that many hours...lets just say the comedown stank worse than theresa may's chocolate starfish had it crawled into a broken mexican sewer pipe, inverted itself and shat in reverse:P
