4.78 grams of cheap gutter drugs?? Some "BIG" bust that was. The police women on scooters are the only thing believable in that story.

Because they was already living in Kerobokan they didn’t have a far way to Kerobokan jail. - Crystal meth is a Nazi German developed narcotic for German soldiers in WWII.

@Wayan Bo, It was Japan that first synthesize Meth in 1893. It was then forced on Axis soldiers of both German and Japanese during WW2. ISIS forced their fighters to take the powerful amphetamine similar to Meth, Captagon . It strips all conscious morality allowing the killer to slaughter without remorse. High sex drive is a side effect and users were driven to rape victims, child captives and each other. Long term use is deadly with constant use presenting open and weeping lesions. I certainly hope police increase arrest of drug users and give them all life sentences.
