Ghana Now Able to Produce Cocaine Precursor

Citing it use in water treatment, a Ghanese chemist has announced a new technique to produce potassium permanganate domestically in Ghana.

Potassium permanganate is also a precursor chemical used in the manufacture of cocaine.

The United Nations has recently noted that West Africa appear to be evolving from a transit hub for narcotics distribution into production center for creating narcotics.

  1. May I point out that the scientist who made this announcement is black and says he wants to use it for water purification.

    Maybe Ghana is developing into a hub for smart black people, not drugs.
