One hundred police officers involved in the arrest of the participants "elite" drug cartel in Almaty

Officers of the Anti-Narcotics Force (DEA) of the Department of Internal Affairs of Almaty became known in the early summer about gaining popularity among the "gilded youth" top-grade marijuana - the so-called "indyuha". Later it was reported that the drug appeared in Astana. Investigation among dealers and drug addicts didn't lead to anything, no one knew anything about the new drug. For employees of DEA it was not surprising - the price of a glass of "indyuha" as it became known, was about 50-70 thousand tenge - the amount are prohibitive for ordinary drug users.
