With this many drugs available within the city, it becomes very important to make sure that addicts get to a drug rehab center and become drug-free. Vaughan citizens are sometimes caught elsewhere committing crimes involving drugs. For example, there were two men from Vaughan who were caught being part of a drug-smuggling operation. The drugs (cocaine and marijuana) were being moved between BC, Ontario, and the United States. The police uncovered three million dollars worth of marijuana and about thirty thousand dollars of cocaine. There was also a man who was charged with participating in a Canadian ecstasy trafficking ring. They found about seven million dollars worth of ecstasy and one and a half million dollars of cocaine. There are other problems that come with drug abuse and addiction. One of the things that are fought by the officials in Vaughan is the production of drugs. There are clandestine labs which are found in motel rooms, homes, etc. For example, the officials busted a methamphetamine laboratory; they found 29 kg of methamphetamine and chemicals that are used in the production. Those labs are especially dangerous as they sometimes explode or create health issues. The drug rehab centers play a major part in getting the meth clients off the drug and into a healthier place. There are also a lot of marijuana labs which produce cannabis by the kilograms. The size of the busts are often very impressive, they often go to over a million dollars worth of drugs and equipment. Of course, marijuana has always been one of the favorite drugs within the younger community.
