An ecstasy lab was found yesterday in the garage of the same house where Toronto police discovered a marijuana grow-up last year.

Officers seized about 2 million units of ecstasy from what they said was a pill-pressing lab on Pipers Green Ave., in the Brimley Rd. and Finch Ave. E. area.

"This is the end of the production line," said Insp. Rick Penney, the officer in charge of operations for the RCMP's GTA drug squad. "The next step is in the mouth."

Penney would not say how much the pills were worth but since the drugs can sell for $20 a unit, the seizure could be worth up to $40 million on the street.

...

Toronto residents Yan Shi, 31, Wei Qion Ma, 29, Yao Quan Jian, 20, and Shu Qiang Wu, 37, face drug charges. New York resident Wan Shan Ling, 50, was also charged.
