KUALA LUMPUR - A prostitution hub in Kuala Lumpur - Lorong Haji Taib - has also become a thriving "drive-through" centre for illegal sex enhancement drugs.
In a series of undercover investigations, Harian Metro reported that the "traders" would set up foldable tables and small wooden boxes along the 100m stretch of road from 11pm to 4am.
They were mostly drug addicts seeking money to finance their habit, while their customers were mostly those who engaged the services of the prostitutes in the area.
Buyers in cars and on motorcycles need only stop by the pavement, choose their preferred drug - selling at RM10 (S$3.70) per dose - and pay the seller before moving off.
Some traders also held empty drug packets which they sold in the open. The contents were hidden near drains or behind walls, so that the sellers could avoid arrest in case of a police raid.
A seller known as Abang Mat told an undercover reporter that he could earn about RM50 a night, after deducting expenses for food and his drug habit.
