Blog: Chris Brook-CarterVending the law

Chris Brook-Carter | 23 February 2004

An interesting piece appeared in the Russian press over the weekend, highlighting unscrupulous – though some would also say enterprising – practices within the country’s nightclub trade.

Apparently soft drink vending machines are being used to sell drugs to clubbers in the city of St Petersburg. One such vending machine, owned by a top drinks company, had seen its cans of fizzy pop replaced by ecstasy tablets which could be bought by punters for 350 roubles (US$12.28).

Police have apparently detained 20 people and seized the machine.
