This is wonderful news and a huge bust. This guy just lost at least 3 million dollars! Ecstasy is a huge problem in the area and this means less pills to wind up in the hands of local teenagers. Until a new shipment comes in from Mexico of course!

Local school officials would probably never admit it, but ecstasy is a BIG problem right now and NO it's not coming from Mexico. It is coming in from Canada. This investigation targeted Asian gangsters.

Sorry Grrrr To bust your Tea Party bubble, but MDMA comes from Northern Europe, usually in shipments of 100k or more. To big cities, then transferred in wholesale amounts to suburban areas and used in "Raves" or Clubs. Despite all of our negative opinions of the drug trafficking in Mexico, only to boost our stigmas about minorities, you are mistaking in assuming MDMA comes from Mexico. It comes from White Northern Europeans, bringing them over in suitcases from The Netherlands and Belgium made by chemists in white lab coats.
Again, sorry I'm just trying to help...you know I stand up for the Pot smokers and the Heroin users that directly benefit from the Mexican Drug Cartels.

I'm a "local school official" and I admit it's a problem. Most of my co-workers agree but they won't admit it to the parents. The kids use this stuff at school all of the time and it's rampant on my campus. It's usually sold for 5 or 10 bucks a hit or traded for a Xanax pill. This is what your kids could be using their lunch money on! Can you imagine the zombies walking around unable to learn in class? Most of the teachers are totally oblivious to this and they just let the kids keep their heads down on the desk all day.

Another part of the problem is that our schools do not the enforce the zero tolerance policy that they claim. Smoking pot on campus- three day suspension. Selling drugs on campus and caught with a roll of 20's and little baggies filled, along with confessions from their buyers???-Not necessarily an expulsion. Most of these kids come back within a week. Districts don't want to lose out on the money we receive from the state to have them on campus... even if it means putting many lives at risk. It disgusts me. Sure these are "kids" and they deserve grace, but they also need some consequences. I don't see this problem going away any time soon.

"Beverly Hills police declined to release any information about what they were doing in other jurisdictions"

They were doing Police work and serving a warrant. What do you think they have to stop at the city limit?
