Drug trafficker in 'healthy cocaine' released in Madrid: "Romanian drug trafficker who sold ‘healthy’ cocaine has been found not guilty in the Spanish Supreme Court on appeal. The drug had been cut so much the remaining content of cocaine was so low, it was considered to have null effect on users.

The court heard evidence that to have any ‘psychoactive’ effects content has to be 0.05 grams, but in the drugs sold in this case the content was 11.7% pure at just 0.045 grams. The defence argued that there could be no crime against public health, the description for drug trafficking in Spain, because the drugs were so adulterated. They noted the 0.05gram content had been established by the Supreme Court in 2004 as the minimum considered to be a danger to health.

The court thus overturns a previously guilty verdict from the Madrid Provincial Court, which had handed down a three year prison sentence."
