    Smuggling drugs to U.S. nets 4 years

    WASHINGTON STATE - An Abbotsford commercial trucker was sentenced Thursday to four years in an American jail for entering Washington state January with 290,000 ecstasy pills and 200 kilograms of ephredrine, used to make crystal meth.

    Sarbjit Singh Bassi, 33, pleaded guilty last April to possession of ecstasy with the intent to distribute.

    U.S. District Judge Thomas Zilly said the lengthy sentence would place a burden on Bassi's family but was necessary to send a strong message to other potential participants in the transporting of illegal drugs into the U.S.
    Bassi attempted to cross into the U.S. at Blaine last Jan. 15 with a load of ecstasy and ephedrine concealed in the tractor-trailer he was driving.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
