Record meth haul in Northland, but how much is let through?

“Record methamphetamine haul in Northland rivals revenues of NZ’s biggest companies”
Those behind a massive haul of methamphetamine, worth nearly half a billion dollars, seized in Northland were running a business the size of a top 50 company.
The $438 million worth of the illicit drug comes close to Auckland International Airport’s revenue last year of $508.5m.
It’s also not too far off casino operator Sky City’s reported revenue for the first half of this year of $513.7m. It is somewhat shy of Fisher and Paykel Healthcare’s 2015 operating revenue of $623.4m.
However the haul beats fast food operator Restaurant Brands’ latest annual sales of $387.6m. Restaurant Brands owns the KFC, Pizza Hut, Starbucks and Carls Jr franchises. http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/81033787/police-make-record-seizure-of-438-million-of-meth-in-northland
Based on the ever so tiniest fluctuations observed in the street price of meth after each “major bust,” you can easily calculate that for every 1km of the deadly stuff seized, more than 999km are allowed to get through to the suicidal end users [under the protection of authorities.] There’s, of course an ongoing, but one-sided, competition between the “cartel” and non-cartel suppliers. The cartel members have a permanent “advance and collect your money” card, together with “get out of jail free” pass, in case of any inadvertent mistake by police. In a “business” so lucrative nothing is left to chance. Ask the PM. He’s the Key!
Northland Police made the record seizure of methamphetamine in an investigation that started with finding a boat abandoned at 90 Mile Beach.
The seizure outstrips the total combined amount of methamphetamine seized in New Zealand in 2015, which totalled 334kg – and has earned police praise from PM John Key [no doubt.]
So, where does so much drug come from, and where will it go after the photo ops are over? You don’t have to think hard, just follow the money!
“Police were unable to make any comments as to where the methamphetamine came from, not wanting to jeopardise the ongoing investigation [I bet,] but said due to the sheer size of the haul, organised crime was probably somewhere behind it [no shit.]”
