Busted 212,000 Hits of LSD [AU]
    #3861345 - 03/03/05 08:16 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

http://www.afp.gov.au/afp/page/Media/2004/2104afplsd.htm

AFP investigation culminates in massive seizure of LSD
Australian Federal Police have arrested a man in the Byron Bay area after a major investigation which has resulted in one of Australia's largest seizures of LSD.

Federal agents have seized approximately 190 millilitres of suspected liquid LSD and 212,000 tabs of paper allegedly being prepared for LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) distribution following a series of raids on premises in northern NSW.

While the final scientific analysis is not yet complete, federal agents believe this to be one of the largest seizures of LSD ever recorded in Australia.

The operation began about two months ago as a result of an AFP intelligence probe and culminated yesterday when search warrants were executed at three addresses in the Byron Bay and Ocean Shores areas.

Federal agents allegedly found 19 small bottles during the searches, each containing approximately 10 millilitres of suspected LSD in liquid form, approximately one kilogram of cannabis, approximately 20 grams of powder believed to be MDMA, $2,340 in cash and computer equipment.

A 52-year-old Byron Bay man has been arrested and charged under the Customs Act with possession of a commercial quantity of LSD reasonably suspected of being imported, and possession of prohibited drugs, cultivation of a prohibited plant and manufacture of prohibited drugs under the NSW Drugs Misuse and Trafficking Act. The man will appear in Byron Bay Court on Friday, April 23.

This amount of LSD has an approximate street value of $45 million, although the exact amount will not be known until it has been analysed by forensic scientists to ascertain purity and exact weight.

AFP Brisbane office manager, Federal Agent Paul Jevtovic, said the operation is of major significance in that a large amount of an extremely dangerous drug has been prevented from reaching the street.

"This amount of liquid LSD has the potential to make almost four million doses," agent Jevtovic said.

"The issue is not so much its value, LSD is a dangerous drug and federal agents have been able to stop a large amount of it from being distributed on the street," he said.

The seized drugs will be available for picture opportunity at 2:30 pm today, along with comment by Brisbane office manager Paul Jevtovic at AFP Brisbane Office, 203 Wharf Street, Spring Hill.

I have a question that's a little off topic.
What would happen if someone where to drink a whole bottle of LSD?

Speaking out of my ass, haven't there been people who were on the verge of being busted who consumed a whole lot of their product and ended up being carted off to padded cells for a long long time as a result? Or is this just another urban legend? Once again, this is my ass speaking.


RIP that LSD.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

I always wondered if it would be worth eating a sheet of acid right before a bust. additional charges vs. possible insanity (tripping that hard in a jail cell thinking about all the time your facing could really fuck your mental health).

Hopefully we won't hear of any busts like this in the states. I would think someone with that much LSD would only sell it to people they trust their life with; I wonder how the police found out about them.

i don't think insanity is worth less jail time. that'd be really fucked up if that was the case.

According to the Psychedelics Encyclopedia by Peter Stafford "For those concerned about immediate medical hazards in ingesting LSD...Abram Hoffer has estimated, on the basis of animal studies, that the half-lethal human dose--meaning half would die--would be about 14,000 [ug]. But one person who took 40,000 ug survived. In the only case of death reportedly caused by overdose (Journal of the Kentucky Medical Association), the quantity of LSD in the blood indicated that 320,000 ug had been injected intravenously.

So, I would assume that if someone drank the LSD in this story (four million doses) they would surely die. But, unlike the rest of us, they would vist both heaven and hell before they do.

I'm not familiar with Australian law on LSD, but isn't 12 years for that many hits tame in comparison to what would happen under the same cirumstances in America?

Yea, in the US you would could quite possibly get a life sentence. Sucks though, some of that could have potentially made it to the states.

45 million street value? what the fuck

LSD IS A DANGEROUS DRUG so we have to lock people up to protect the people. See how protected you are because we are locking the baddies up... we even kill some of them! if it wasn't for us this world would be dangerous!

FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK

"Seizure of a dangerous drug" fucking stupid uninformed police. They dont know a fucking thing. Kilo's of coke are probably being shifted around the country, leading to health problems, addictions and crime and the fucking police claim acid is a dangerous drug? For fucks sake. Sorry for the use of such foul language but bloody hell, this is so frustrating to see yet another fucked up example of the worlds handling of drugs.

Now onto a more positive point....

Australia is luckily fucking lenient in sentencing on all fronts really. :smirk:

> What would happen if someone where to drink a whole bottle of LSD?

With what little they had in the 190 milliliters, not much. Extremly large dosages (multi-gram) require a hospital, but would most likely live with no negative side effects. The multi-gram doses of LSD tend to suppress the respitory system, but not much else. There have been documented cases of accidental multi-gram doses being consumed with no negative long term effects.

What do you mean by a whole bottle? A bottle is a very subjective object, and can hold varying amounts of LSD, depending on how diluted it is and the size of it.

If you're wondering about massive doses of LSD, you should check the Thumbprint thread. They don't make you end up in a padded cell or such (unless you have a mental disorder of some sorts), but if you took a whole bottle as in grams of the stuff you'd probably die.

Though if a normal dose is say, 100 micrograms, for simplicity of math, that's 10 doses a milligram, 1000 milligrams in a gram, so if it took 10,000 doses of a drug to kill you, it's still pretty safe. Imagine the health effects if you took 100 aspirin, or drank 100 glasses of wine. Comparitively, people eating a sheet of acid, or 100 hits, have been fine.

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.
