Philippine Customs seizes Php1.1M Worth of Marijuana
    #26756088 - 06/19/20 01:20 AM (12 days, 22 hours ago)

This is just a Philippines' Bureau of Customs FB page update

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2694306850817081&id=1653473014900475

Consistent with its mandate of protecting the borders against the entry of illegal drugs, the Bureau of Customs-Port of Clark seized 966 grams of Marijuana with an estimated value of Php 1.1 Million and subsequently turned over yesterday, June 18, 2020 to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Region III.

The shipment declared as "art-work fine" from California, USA arrived on June 09, 2020, was subjected to strict profiling of documents and x-ray examination. Physical examination on the subject shipment yielded two (2) vacuum-sealed clear plastic packs of suspected fine kush weeds.

Said shipment was likewise subjected to K9 sniffing which indicated presence of illegal drugs. Thereafter, PDEA chemical analysis was conducted affirming the findings of BOC-Clark personnel.

Also turned over to PDEA were two (2) other shipments containing separately one (1) bottle of CBD Oil and six (6) tobacco rolling papers which likewise positively resulted for presence of marijuana. 

Warrants of Seizure and Detention (WSD) were issued by District Collector Ruby Alameda against the subject shipments for violation of Sections 118 (g), 119 (d) & 1113 (f), (i) & (l) of R.A. No. 10863 or the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act (CMTA) in relation to Republic Act No. 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.

Last March 30, 2020 the Port of Clark also apprehended P13.2 million worth of marijuana bringing the total to12.535 kgs of illegal or illegal substances seized by the port in 2020.

The Port of Clark remains vigilant in protecting the country's borders in support of BOC Commissioner Rey Guerrero's commitment to support the Duterte Administration's war on drugs.

In a free society, the presumption must be that people can smoke, snort, eat or inject whatever they wish, so long as they do not harm others. The burden of proof should rest on those who would ban marijuana, not those who want it legal. That burden has never been met.

2,200 USD is approximately 110,000 Philippine pesos. So I wouldn't be too sure about that. Of course they are inflating the value to make a better headline, but it looks like weed over there is super expensive.

Just because the exchange rate leaves your with a higher nominal value doesn't necessarily mean you will end up with more buying power for every and all goods and services. No doubt the cost of living is lower over there, but anywhere supply fails to meet demand you are likely to run into higher prices. So expect things like food and real estate to be cheaper, but the standard of living will be lower as well and you wouldn't necessarily have access to all the amenities and luxuries found in first world countries.

I got a kick out of that as well, the statement just sounds weird...and what I want to know is how did they come to the conclusion it was Kush?

Sure but that its nice for a vacation. Southeast asia too, very tropical yet cheap region. Some countries there have very strict laws about drugs though, Thailand has the death penalty. Even though there are shroom shake bars everywhere, so that seems to be an exception and very tolerated, as if it was legal. Advertised and all.

A pound of cannabis is around 1000 dollars in California. I have seen it cheaper and more expensive but never more than 1600 since 2018. 2200 for 2 pounds is a very normal price for cannabis from cali.

The real problem here is they, either the cannabis growers, or the authorities, or everyone, are treating the holy herbal as money. That's the real W.T.F.. :rasta:✠

I wouldn't go there to buy weed...more like vacation.  Exchange rates make traveling down south more economical.  Google Travel list 3-4star hotels for less than $50us a night and dinner for two at mid range restaurants for less than $20usd in the Philippines.

Well with the laws over there now, somebody is probably going to get killed.  That sucks, I suspect that was going to be somebody's personal stash for the next few years bc of the CBD oil.  Not worth it in that country with the crazy leader.  I guess they could shoot the person who's house that got sent to just for "suspicion" and get away with it from some of the news I've read.

Just like the DEA and other LE does over here, they inflated the value for the headline. Curious, was the weed over there good? Because that weed looks like shit, not sure from the picture but it looks like its full of undeveloped seeds..."fine kush weeds" indeed.

Lmao it's funny how the police prices drugs these days. Literally a Kilo of the worst weed you buy from the province worth P10,000 ~[$200] will be valued at 100 times more than the actual "street value"

Clearly it’s to keep you in jail/give you less leeway, that shit is terrible

Anyone who wants to go to the Philippines for the weed, you are crazy
