Iranians Selling Cheaper Crystal Meth

in Substance Abuse

Drug smuggling gangs are undercutting the crystal meth market in Thailand by selling the drug at a cheaper price then the Myanmar drug dealers.

Police report that traffickers from Iran are selling a kilogram of crystal meth in Thailand for $26,000 (800,000 Thai Baht), undercutting the Myanmar traffickers, who sell a kilogram of crystal meth for $81,000 (2.5 Million Thai Baht).

The Iranians are able to sell their drugs at a cheaper price due to using lesser amounts of pseudoephedrine.
