Kids these days: boy, 12, coaxed into selling meth

A 12-year-old street hawker was detained by police on Monday in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district, after police noticed the youngster was peddling some unusual – and illegal – wares: nearly 60 bags of crystal meth.

The child confessed and said he had been selling flowers when he was approached to sell drugs instead, and was being paid $7.50 a day for his illicit efforts, but had only been in the meth game for a mere three days.
