Philippine Police Destroys P14 Million Worth of Cannabis
« on: January 05, 2021, 10:00:41 am »
Press Release:

“The PNP has successfully reduced the supply of Marijuana in the streets during the holiday season.”

This is the assessment of PNP Chief, Police General Debold M Sinas as he noted continuing eradication operations of clandestine Marijuana farms in the hinterlands, particularly in the Cordillera region which is a natural habitat of the prohibited plant.

As early as November 2020, Sinas has instructed PNP units to step-up supply reduction operations of illegal drugs in anticipation of the increased demand during the holiday season.

“The relentless marijuana eradication efforts of PNP units in the Cordillera, in coordination with PDEA, led to a scarcity in the supply of Marijuana products to users in other parts of the country,” he said.

For the month of December alone, Sinas noted the series of Marijuana eradication operations were carried out by Police Regional Office-Cordillera in 17 separate cultivation sites and clandestine farms in the region.

“These operations resulted to the destruction of some 73,192 fully-grown Marijuana plants and 3,847 Marijuana seedlings with a combined street value of P14,792,280.00,” Sinas said, citing reports from Cordillera PNP Regional Director, Police Brigadier General R’Win Pagkalinawan.

“This effort will continue beyond the holiday season, and perhaps throughout the year when good weather permits that our troops can reach even the farthest clandestine Marijuana farms targeted for destruction.” He said.

As an opening salvo for the new year, Cordillera police raided another Marijuana plantation site in Sitio Topinao, Madaymen, Kibungan, Benguet on Sunday afternoon.
Destroyed on-site were 1,350 fully-grown Marijuana plants estimate to be worth Php 270, 000.00 planted on a 270 squaremeter lot.

Investigators are now tracing ownership of the property through the municipal assessor’s office of Kibungan, Benguet.
Sinas said police operations against cultivation, production and trafficking of Marijuana will continue without let-up despite a recent action by the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs (UN-CND) to remove cannabis from Schedule IV of the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs.

“Cannabis in the form of plants, products and its derivatives is still a dangerous drug as defined under Republic Act No. 9165 or The Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002,” he said. (PNP-PIO)

John 3:16-18 ESV
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son (Jesus Christ), that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
