Former rider Laurent Roux busted in 'Belgian Pot' ring

Eurosport | Roux arrested in 'pot belge' scandal

Can't beat Eurosport's lead graf:

A French court announced Saturday that six people -- including former French pro Laurent Roux -- have been arrested for their involvement in a drug trafficking ring specialising in 'pot belge,' an insidious mix of heroine, cocaine and amphetamines.

Roux is the only rider or former rider implicated, but police are questioning nine others, and have charged 5 others, with trafficking doping products.

There's very little on the English-speaking web on the effects of 'Belgian Pot', but many, many stories in other languages.
