Three of the 16 middle-aged women who were caught taking ketamine at a KTV room in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province in January were sentenced to jail terms and fined on March 30.
A total of 20 people were busted in the KTV raid on January 8, four of whom were men. The 16 women, aged 38 to 54 years old, were either all neighbors or friends. Most of them were full-time housewives and many of them had grandchildren.
Police pointed to a middle-aged woman surnamed Dai as the main organizer of the ladies’ rollicking drug parties. In court, she admitted to buying two baggies of Special K to bring to a friend’s KTV birthday celebration that night, and was sentenced to one year in prison and fined 5,000 yuan. The other two accomplices were sentenced to four months in jail and slapped with 2,000 yuan fines each.
The women had previously told investigators that they lived a dull existence outside of doing housework and taking care of their grandchildren. Many of them slept in until noon and wasted the day away playing Mahjong and going to beauty salons. At night, the lonely wives club would meet up to sing karaoke, drink and occasionally get ripped on ketamine.
When they went out, they told their families that they were attending a “sports meeting”, and when they stumbled in after their highly illegal extracurricular activities, they would sometimes watch TV until the early hours of the morning as the effects wore off.
At a birthday party in April 2014, someone had whipped out a bag of Special K and asked everybody to give it a try. Since then, the drug remained a staple party favor at every one of their gatherings.
It’s reported that each of the women dropped around 4,000 yuan at every party after they split up the bill. Zhejiang aunties go hard.
