In 2003, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) arrested over 65 individuals in ten cities throughout the United States and Canada. It was the result of an 18 months investigation that targeted the importation of an essential chemical to manufacture the drug methamphetamine. Arrests occurred in several cities across several Canadian and American states. As part of this investigation, agents targeted (and arrested) 6 executives from 3 Canadian chemical companies, all of whom had sold bulk quantities of pseudoephedrine to methamphetamine manufacturers in the United States.
