Major Crackdown On Internet Drug Traffickers

Attorney General John Ashcroft announced a major crackdown in Internet drug traffickers Thursday, disclosing that 115 dealers of the ‘date rape’ drug GHB had been arrested  in 84 cities in the United States and Canada. The DEA has documented 72 deaths from the drug and its derivatives, which are sold over the internet to teenagers and young adults by dealers who operate  their own Web sites. The drugs are delivered by mail.
At a news conference authorities announced that as part of the probe, they had conducted enforcement operations in over 80 U.S. cities with drug seizures that could have yield more than 25 million doses of GHB and its derivatives.
