    Edmonton ketamine bust largest in Alberta history

    EDMONTON — Alberta RCMP seized 19 kilograms of ketamine in what police say is the largest raid of its kind in provincial history.

    The hallucinogenic drug, also referred to as ‘Special K,’ was found inside a northwest Edmonton home when police raided it at 12:30 a.m. Monday. Police say the amount of drug seized could have been processed into 380,000 doses.

    It took RCMP and Edmonton police officers well into the afternoon to clear the house of the dangerous substances inside, which included ether, red phosphorous, hydrochloric acid, trimethyl chlorosynine, chloroform, phenyl thaline and sodium hydroxide.

    Police believe these items are all consistent with meth production. The raid also yielded a small amount of ecstasy, a digital scale and packing materials.

    The raid is a result of a two-month investigation by the RCMP Edmonton drug section.

    Tu Thanh Nguyen, 27, has been charged with three counts of possession and is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 2.

    This sucks SWIM is in Canada right beside Alberta, and has wanted to try ketamine for so long and the cops go and take more off the street that could have possibly made it up SWIMS way.

    PS: Fuck the Po-Lice

    I'm in Edmonton too...crazy stuff if this impacts things....I got a phonecall about 30 minutes after the bust...have to wonder if this will affect prices.

    edit: so is my math off or are they saying that 1/20th of a gram is a dose?

    that does appear to be what they are saying according to my calculator. which works out to 50mg/dose , probably a fairly common light dose. (intramuscular or insufflated, probably rather low orally)
