Pervitine makers moving out of Prague, says police report

The production of the illegal drug pervitine has moved from the capital to the central Bohemian region, according to a report produced by the Prague police for the city’s Town Hall. The report, which focuses on drugs in the city in 2007, says producers of pervitine are now making the meta-amphetamine outside Prague to lower the risk of detection and then taking it to the city to sell. That said, eleven pervitine making labs were uncovered in Prague last year. Meanwhile, there has been an increase in marijuana growing in the capital, with more and more production in the hands of Vietnamese gangs, the report says. One official said the production of marijuana in the Czech capital was now extremely professional.
