A group of 20 people averaging around 50 years old were detained for taking drugs at a KTV room in a hotel in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province earlier this month.
The group of partiers, most of whom are around 50 years old, started doing drugs at a birthday party last April and have been gathering there ever since. They typically split the bill up, and each of them spends around 4,000 RMB at every gathering, Wenzhou Daily reported.
They told police that they would simply tell their families they were attending a “sports meeting”. They said they indulged in the KTV drug parties mostly because they “felt lonely”.
Investigations show that most of the 20 involved had been neighbors and friends for years. The youngest is 38 years old and the oldest is 54.
A majority of of them are housewives who take care of their grandchildren at home or kill time by watching TV, playing cards, singing karaoke or…taking ketamine, apparently.
