Vitamin K lands in Phillipines

"Vitamin K" lands in Phillipines
March 30, 2005
abs-cbnnews.com

A new form of "party drug" is slowly taking the place of the more popular shabu and "ecstasy" and it is not even classified as illegal, the Philippine National Police said Wednesday.

Police Deputy Director Ricardo de Leon of the Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operation Task Force identified the substance as "ketamine," which is similar to shabu (methamphetamine crystals).

He said that the effect of ketamine on its user is quite similar to shabu.

De Leon said that the substance is slowly taking the place of shabu at parties because it is easily obtained and legal.

Ketamine is more popularly known among the youth as K, Ket, Special K, Vitamin K, Vitamin K, Kit Kat, Keller, Kelly's Day, Green, Blind Squid, Cat Valium, Purple, Special Coke, Super Acid and Super C.

The substance, de Leon added, is also known a "rape drug" because of its tranquilizing effects on the user.

He said ketamine was originally intended for veterinary use, specifically for horses.

While the substance has been classified an illegal substance in other Asian countries as well as in the United States, the Philippines has yet to categorize it as such, de Leon said.

De Leon said that he will ask the Dangerous Drugs Board to declare ketamine as an illegal substance.

The PNP's findings followed Tuesday's raid when $3.2 million worth of ketamine was confiscated from two foreigners in Malate.

The suspects were identified as Chinese national Chen Lim Yung and his Taiwanese partner, Tai Wun Lang.

The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency said a gram of ketamine fetches a street price of P5,400.

I don't know what kind of "shabu" they've been using, but uh, since when is ketamine even remotely similar in effects to methamphetamines?
