Customer Detained After Eating Opium-Laced Noodles

Customer Detained After Eating Opium-Laced Noodles
Sep 26, 2014 By eChinacities.com

One restaurant owner in Yan’an, Shaanxi province has admitted to lacing his noodles with opium to keep his customers coming back for more.

The noodle shop owner-surnamed Zhang- bought poppy buds, crushed them into a powder and started sprinkling it on noodles, no doubt hoping to create a noodle dependency in his customers.

However, he was busted when one of his customers tested postive in a drugs test, despite never having touched drugs. Liu Juyou, suspecting that the noodle shop was to blame, persuaded several relatives to eat at the shop and then take a drugs test. They all tested positive, and reported their findings to the police.

Unfortunately, the police still dismissed Liu’s appeal against his detention, even after they arrested Zhang, as apparently, accidental drug use is still punishable by law.

"Nothing personal, folks, it's business", said the shop's owner. After a brief pause the guy added, "Well, nothing personal except my personal bank account, that is. Welcome to China, the land where OUR dreams come true!"

If someone poisons you, it is not an accident. How many Chinese will now copy lacing their food with opium.

So if someone puts drugs in my soup or something... I am to blame? I guess these cops get their baijiu spiked with paint thinner... you wouldn't notice the difference with how baijiu tastes.

I had "noodle dependency" in college. It ended after I got my first paycheck.
