ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the efforts of Cambodian rangers and the military to locate and destroy the illegal drug factories that plague the forest of Cardamom Mountains. The factories process Cinnamomoum parthenoxylon, a rare evergreen tree that is used to manufacture the drug MDMA, otherwise known as ecstasy. The tree is native to Cambodia, Indonesia and the Philippines, where it is considered to be critically endangered.
