Contraband drug is also being produced inside Bangladesh

28views

Online Desk :Although yaba is mainly smuggled from Myanmar in massive quantities, law enforcement agencies say the contraband drug is also being produced inside Bangladesh.

Several arrested local yaba producers have told the court about using pseudoephedrine or similar chemicals, used to produce medicine for cold, as raw material for amphetamine, the main ingredient of the drug.

Bangladesh banned pseudoephedrine import in February last year after noticing a spike in the quantity brought in by the pharmaceutical companies compared to previous years.

Local manufacturers, who are smuggling the chemical, say producing and selling the drug is more profitable than smuggling it from Myanmar. They separate chemicals for amphetamine from medicines containing them when the raw material becomes scarce.

Law enforcement agencies have busted about 50 yaba factories in Bangladesh since 2007. Security forces say they suspect there are more such small factories.
