Eleven Indicted in Chemical Revolution Case

Eleven suspects are now facing drug trafficking charges connected to an investigation into Germany’s largest online drug shop, Chemical Revolution. According to the Frankfurt Public Prosecutor, Chemical Revolution sold hundreds of kilograms of drugs and earned a profit of more than one million euros.

The “Chemical Revolution” shop was shut down as a result of a joint operation by the German Federal Criminal Police Office and the French criminal police. A 2018 drug trafficking arrest in Brandenburg set the Chemical Revolution investigation into motion; German authorities arrested a 26-year-old in Brandenburg who had close to 50 kilograms of amphetamine, 16 kilograms of cannabis, 2 kilograms of MDMA, 900 grams of cocaine, 600 grams of heroin, and many other substances in his possession. Investigators learned that the suspected drug trafficker had been storing drugs for Germany’s largest drug shop.

Authorities really need to decriminalize and legalize all drugs. Zero harm is done in voluntarily exchanging cash for drugs and I hope in the future we can look back on this idiotic behavior as thousands of lives have been ruined by the state just so agents can generate revenue.

Legalizing drugs is the worst decision that you can think over, lets say the goverment will legilize it, they make their own commercial price which is and people can only buy a limited drugs. There goes the problem already ’limit ‘drugs. The dark business will rise and they can sell for probably higher profit than ever the drugs to those who wants more which causes more drugs war.. nevertheless the war on drugs will never stop even with legalization .

the legalization of drugs of course would still make it illegal to sell P2P. Just like marijuana, it is illegal to sell marijuana P2P without a business. drugs would have to become unregulated like things you can sell on craigslist, offerup, and lift in order to free the people.

Our responsible and sparing use of MDMD has provided many memorable, loving, healing, heart-expanding experiences. Decriminalization is the way.

Keep drugs illegal I say. Legal stuff sucks. Just end up paying tax, being tracked. Never had a problem getting drugs and quality good on black market. What’s the point of going legal?
