Police have intercepted a staggering 7,500 ecstasy (MDMA) tablets valued at $500,000. These tablets were believed to be bound for the Future Music Festival in Queensland, Australia. After, catching my breath, I thought that this must be a very ambitious drug dealer. Although, the use of illegal substances may be even more common than it seems. Illegal drug use is alarmingly high in schools as well. So maybe this is just another day.
From the source: ‘Today we have prevented over 7,500 MDMA tablets being consumed at music festivals such as the Future Festival tomorrow, helping to make all Queenslanders safer, in particular our teenagers and young adults’, said inspector Mark Andrews of Taskforce Maxima. Superintended Brendan Smith added that over $50,000 and 22 cellphones were confiscated. This case is still developing, and further charges may follow.
