Egyptian Customs Seize Smuggled Marijuana E-Cigarettes in Aswan
Egyptian authorities seize smuggled e-cigarettes containing hallucinogenic THC, raising concerns over drug trafficking at customs.

According to a report by Headtopics, the Egyptian customs department, in collaboration with the Aswan criminal investigation department and the anti-narcotics department, have successfully intercepted a case of smuggling e-cigarettes containing a high concentration of the hallucinogenic substance THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

 

The customs authorities, while carrying out routine customs procedures on packages, suspect one particular package that was sent from the United States. The package was initially described as containing a packet of coffee, but upon further inspection, it was found to be a bag containing 10 different kinds of e-cigarettes, with labels indicating the presence of THC components.

 

The customs department has submitted these suspicious e-cigarettes to the anti-narcotics unit at Cairo airport, who have confirmed that all intercepted e-cigarettes contain the hallucinogenic substance THC, which is prohibited in Egypt. They have called for strict monitoring of customs ports and the prevention of any smuggling attempts.
