Customs intercepts 489.8 grams of composed marijuana at Post Office


Samoa’s Ministry of Customs and Revenue intercepted 489.8 grams of composed marijuana or hash at the Post Office. 

This was confirmed in a statement released by the MCR. The drugs will be turned over to the Ministry of Police and Prisons. 

According to the statement, the MCR and the Police Joint K9 unit and NZ Customs Pacific Detector Dog Program  to combat illicit narcotics made a drug bust when they intercepted close to 500 grams of marijuana hast. 

‘The inference on the rarity of the illicit drugs in its compressed form found locally further confirms the importation of the illicit drugs from overseas.” 

The statement says that the MCR and the Samoa Police will continue to collaborate with its international partners in a joint effort to combat trafficking of illicit narcotics.
