MANILA, Philippines – Some 330 cartridges of liquid marijuana were seized from various warehouses at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), the Bureau of Customs (BOC) said.
In a statement issued Wednesday, the BOC said the drug cartridges, which were confiscated from air cargo parcels, were estimated to worth P700,000.
Customs personnel examining the air parcels initially discovered a total of 11 packages containing liquid marijuana.
The bureau said it coordinated the seizure of drugs with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and the NAIA Inter-Agency Drug Interdiction Task Group.
The cartridges of liquid marijuana were then turned over to PDEA for further investigation of its consignees and senders.
The BOC stressed that the importation of “hempseed” and “Cannabidiol” is still considered illegal and may be subject to seizure pursuant to the provisions of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act, and the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act.
