Philippine Customs Seize Over 2kg of Kush at Port
Philippine Customs Bureau seized over 2kg of kush and 156 cannabis e-cigarettes worth $66,267 at Clark Port on June 5.

According to a report from the Philippine News Agency on June 5th, the Bureau of Customs (BOC) in the Port of Clark, Philippines, intercepted over 2 kilograms of kush (high-grade marijuana) and 156 disposable e-cigarettes containing marijuana, with an estimated value of over 3.9 million Philippine pesos ($66,267). The package was declared as "accessories" imported from California, USA.


On June 5th, the cargo was marked by X-ray Inspection Project (XIP) personnel due to abnormal X-ray images. Later, after being sniffed by a police dog, it was found to potentially contain illegal drugs. The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) confirmed the presence of marijuana in the package after conducting chemical laboratory analysis.


The Customs Bureau has issued detention and arrest warrants for violations of sections 118 (g), 119 (d) and section 1113 paragraphs f, I, and l (3 and 4) of the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act, as well as the number 9165 law.


The Director General of the Philippines' Bureau of Customs stated:


The recent seizure operation has demonstrated the efforts we are making to combat drug trafficking and ensure community safety. We will continue to strengthen our operations, enhance our capabilities, and prevent any attempts to smuggle illegal substances into the country.
