500kg ephedrine! The point is that person has obtained it illegally, most probably for drug trafficking reasons. What I find confusing is that now people might think that ephedrine equals drug traffic, even if producing ephedrine for common medicines is legal and normal for a pharmaceutical company in most countries. Again, due to a minority of persons, what could be a relief to millions of people is becoming a dangerous drug. It always amazes me how hard it is to build a better world, and how easy it is to make it worse...
