Would the nice USFK people please stop smuggling synthetic pot?

Somebody’s not getting the memo:

Four runaway American soldiers have been arrested on suspicion of producing and selling a new type of synthetic drug, South Korean police officers said Monday.

The suspects, including a 23-year-old private from the U.S. army, only known by his initial K, are accused of smuggling synthetic marijuana via international air mail, officers said. They then allegedly produced a new type of narcotics called “Spice,” and sold the drugs to locals, foreigners, and other American soldiers in the foreigners‘ hub of Itaewon and the Hongdae area in central Seoul.
The agency said it has also arrested a 27-year-old Filipino woman, only known by her initial D, on the same charges. Twelve locals and foreigners, and 13 other American soldiers have been arrested without detention on charges of buying and using Spice.

Truly innovative stuff, mailing yourself drugs. Amazing they got caught.

    I think the stupidity of most drug laws is nicely balanced by the stupidity of most people who break them.

    I think you should have said USFK people stop deserting the army.

    It’s great that Korea now only states the first “initial” of the naughty foreigners name.

    I remember back in the days when they would only display the first “initial” of the naughty Korean persons name,
    but state the WHOLE naughty foreigners name.

    Things are becoming more fair.

    Isn’t the picture of the pills and the syringe a little much? I mean . . . we’re talking about synthetic marijuana for crying out loud. It’s something you smoke . . . not something you inject or take in pill form.

    And what is this non-sense about “producing and selling a new type of synthetic drug?” Spice has been around since 2004. I have a hard time believing these knuckleheads were buying raw ingredients and then making Spice in Korea – especially when the finished product is so readily and cheaply available in the US.

    Korean American or Korean gets caught smuggling pot? At least 60 comments. Native born American smuggling pot? Barely 6 comments. Just an observation folks.
