TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police have arrested a male Canadian national for allegedly importing an illegal sex-enhancement drug from overseas, reports TV Asahi (Nov. 30).
In September, the suspect, a 34-year-old graduate student, allegedly received the drug Blue boy through a mail order site in France.
According to police, Blue boy contains isopropyl nitrite, which is banned in Japan. The drug is inhaled to give a sense of euphoria.
The suspect lives in Nakano Ward. “I imported [Blue boy] for my own use,” he said. “I didn’t know it was regulated in Japan.”
A Japan Customs official discovered the drug upon its arrival into Japan through the international mail.
