So, trisodium phosphate gives a false positive for ketamine?

/there goes my thanksgiving...

Heh - was my first thought but honestly, that much Ketamine made me wonder in the first place.  That shiat is niche as hell just about everywhere.  Was wondering who the fark would be moving that much of it - article makes it make sense.  The answer is no one at all.  So many easier, cheaper, and higher profit margin drugs you could be doing that with - it did not make a lot of sense.

And that is the problem with using presumptive drug tests on sacks of white powders. Chemistry a biatch and a half.

Especially in the hands of most of the rest of us. Vinegar makes some stuff bubble, but damned if I can remember, until I mix it into some recipe and the reaction starts.  It catches me every freaking time.

Since I don't make a living using chemicals, like these guys, I don't sweat my stuff, but this group needs serious training in understanding science and confirmation bias.

So they started their celebrating of this bigly drug bust with only the results from a few shiat field tests?

"Mr Somsak later admitted that it "might have been premature to hold a press conference" at such an early stage, said the Post."

Ya think? Farking morons.

Hey boss, these bags say TSP does that mean Thailand Super Police?

let's hope they didn't execute the perps too fast.

I assume they dragged them outside and summarily executed them right away.

If I was standing on top of a mountain of bags labeled something else, I think I would try just a tiny bump before telling the world it was Ketamine.

Too bad the appeal for those arrest was already denied and they were executed yesterday.

and it would be very rude of you not to share a bump with your fishy friend over here.

A friend got stopped in Customs once with a 500 gm jar of crystal vitamin C.  They were so disappointed when it checked out as vitamin C.

Field kits for drugs are notoriously unreliable. Relying on them exclusively for your evidence before your triumphal press conference is about as dumb as it gets.

Being Thailand, the persons arrested now face only 10 years in prison for "appearing to traffic narcotics" or some other made-up charge...

/Thailand is known for wildly punitive sentences for even minor drug trafficking charges. Unless you know someone, of course.

Is this some kind of (Thai) bust?

The US may be overly punitive, but not "death sentence for trafficking" harsh.

It's too bad they already tortured and executed everyone who worked there.

Drug trafficking is a capital crime under current federal law. Not sure anyone's been executed or even sentenced yet, but Trump has Barr working on it.

derpes_simplex: Hey boss, these bags say TSP does that mean Thailand Super Police?


To be fair, the bags are NOT going to be labelled, "DEFINITELY NOT KETAMINE.  SERIOUSLY.  IT'S JUST BAKING SODA OR SOMETHING.  GO AWAY."
 
2020-11-25 1:14:12 PM  
They actually had a translator come in, and they told the cops what the bags said. Probably something something Sodium Triphosphate.

Just a wild guess here.

It wasn't Special K, just an industrial cleaner?

Sounds like a TOTAL failure to me.
