    BEIJING - Police cracked some 120,000 drug-related crimes and arrested 130,000 related suspects last year, according to the Ministry of Public Security (MPS).

    A total of 7.3 tonnes of heroin, 16.2 tonnes of methamphetamine, 4.7 tonnes of ketamine and more than 5,800 tonnes of chemical agents used to make drugs were confiscated, according to a MPS meeting held Thursday.

    Describing the current drug-fighting situation as "complicated and austere," the ministry ordered a 100-day nationwide police campaign to crack down on the manufacture and sale of drugs, as well as other drug-related crimes that "severely harm young people's health and create other public security threats."

    According to the meeting, the campaign will focus on drug-related activity in popular entertainment venues located near communities.

    The ministry vowed to improve regional law enforcement coordination in the fight against drugs, aiming to bust the ringleaders of major transnational drug gangs, as well as those who smuggle drug-making chemical agents or illegally grow and purchase plants that can be used to produce drugs.

    In a high-profile case, Myanmar drug lord Naw Kham and his armed drug trafficking gang were busted last year in a joint operation conducted by police from China, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand following the brutal murder of 13 Chinese sailors.

    The gang is believed to have engaged in drug trafficking, kidnapping, murder, looting and other crimes along the Mekong River for many years.

    Naw Kham was sentenced to death late last year.

    its interesting that the US and Canada represent 13% of global heroin consumption with Approx 350 million people while china with its 1.344 billion people only represents 12% of the global consumption.


    its also interesting that Europe is the biggest heroin consomer. the value of the EU heroin market is over 20 Billion dollars per year while the US and china's market is estimated to be a 8 and 9 billion respectivly. europe represents 26% of global heroin consumption.

      What I don't get is how they make the stuff without government help. I remember in Thailand durning the Vietnam war, opium laced weed was so common right off the base. Just don't get it. And look at the inner cities in the US. I just watched YOUTUBE's gangland series, that is some serious stuff.

      I bet those numbers would be a lot different if it included all opioids and not just heroin.
