Largest Cannabis Eradication Operation in World by Brazilian and Paraguayan Authorities
Brazilian and Paraguayan authorities have destroyed 3,800 tons of cannabis in what is considered the world's largest eradication operation.

According to a report by Agence France-Presse on December 8th, Brazilian authorities have disclosed that they, along with the relevant agencies in Paraguay, have successfully destroyed 3,800 tons of marijuana, marking what is considered the largest-scale eradication operation of the drug worldwide.


According to a statement by the Federal Police of Brazil, Operation Nueva Alianza has been hailed as the "largest law enforcement operation in international cooperation aimed at eradicating illegal marijuana cultivation.


This operation against illegal marijuana cultivation in forest border areas and indigenous settlements is being carried out in multiple phases by the Federal Police of Brazil and the National Anti-Drug Department of Paraguay. The final phase is currently taking place in the Gani du region of Paraguay, which borders the Brazilian states of Parana and Mato Grosso do Sul.


The police authorities have stated that this operation effectively curbed the circulation of drugs in the area, resulting in the destruction of 430 camps used by drug dealers and associated criminal organizations as operational bases.


The announcement states, "By preventing the illicit cultivation of marijuana, it has disrupted a vast and organized criminal network, including crimes related to environmental violations and the capitalization of criminal groups involved in the trafficking of weapons and other drugs.


Most of the marijuana produced in Paraguay is transported to Brazil, primarily to supply the main criminal organizations operating in this South American giant.


According to data from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), law enforcement agencies globally confiscate 5,000 tons of marijuana annually during one million policing operations.
