Hot! Thailand Blames Myanmar After Massive Drug Haul

Daily Times | A senior Thai politician on Thursday accused neighboring Myanmar of failing to tackle drug production after 3.3 million amphetamine tablets were seized in Bangkok.

The haul, with a street value of $350,000 and believed to be one of the biggest on record in Thailand, has prompted fears of a surge in the amount of drugs pouring into the kingdom.

The Wa live in an autonomous region in northern Shan state, bordering China and Laos, and are believed to have a thousands-strong army that analysts say is sustained by drug money.
