Ex-Vancouver Resident Sentenced to 5 Year Imprisonment for BZP

    A former resident of Vancouver has been sentenced to five years of imprisonment this Friday for smuggling party drugs into the United States.

    The 23 year-old man named Nen Angel Cruces was held in a Seattle courtroom for his involvement in a local drug trafficking ring which led to the distribution of BZP into Seattle and on to Chicago and Detroit.

    U. S. District Court Judge Richard Jones explained to Cruces that BZP is an extremely dangerous drug, while sentencing him.

    “If you walk around the city of Seattle, you will see the many young people and kids who are suffering from addiction to drugs as a result of their use of ecstasy and BZP”, he added.

    He further said that Cruces is held responsible for bringing in thousands of drugs in US. He will not be spared for the risk.

    BZP is basically a hallucinogen similar to amphetamine. It is banned in the United States, the United Kingdom and other countries. However, it can be sold legally in Canada.

    The federal agency has been pondering upon the inclusion of BZP in the category of Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. Its legality in Canada has been a loophole in the full on control on the inflow.

    What? :confused:

    What?? :laugh:

    I'm thinking topnews must be an intentionally unfitting name for the group of trained chimps that crapped out this article. Piperazines (and the avoidance thereof) probably do more to curtail the ecstacy market than anything else. Few people want any piece of them. This seems more like a victory for MDMA afficonados than the 'War on Drugs', so well played US legal system. Still.. 5 years imprisonment for peddling a few poxy piperazines seems a little harsh.

    he was partners with Krysta Edwards- also sentenced recently- see: 'Simpsons’ busted for ecstasy

    Made-in-B.C. party drug is province’s latest export

    There were estimated to be hauling 50,000 pills a load- he alone had 12 documented border crossings = 600,000 pills.

    Having spent well over a decade in the pacific northwest the turtles aardvark says he is very, very familiar with the BC gangs. Many friends ended up like these two, many more made millions in a matter of years. Really not sure who did better for themselves - the fast money for selling ones conscience destroyed a lot of friends.

    If they had been running high quality MDMA the turtles aardvark would be upset with the sentence as harsh. In this case- 5 years at Guantanamo would be lenient. What was it Hunter S Thompson said about Ed Meese all those years ago? He should be stripped naked and locked in a cell with a horny bull elk rammed full of LSD. Sounds just about right here...

    Swim agrees with the sentiments displayed in this thread. If you're smuggling BZP passing it off as ecstasy, fuck you. You deserve all the jail time you get. Swim applauds every seizure of TMFPP/BZP/etc
