Over 130kg of marijuana seized at Macedonian border crossing


Border officers found and seized over 130kg of marijuana from an Albania-registered truck at Bogorodica border crossing on Wednesday.

The narcotics were hidden in a cache in the truck’s trailer.

The 37-year-old driver from Albania has been given 30-day detention, said the basic Public Prosecutor’s Office on Thursday.

    What happens to the seized marijuana? Do they burn/incinerate it?

      No. When SDS is in charge, they resell it at higher prices.

        Do any of them smoke it themselves you think?
        I’m also doubting the Albanians really closed down that town (Lazarat?) devoted to growing marijuana. I’ve read that the Albanians sell marijuana and use the proceeds to buy heroin and cocaine. And then they sell the cocaine in The Netherlands and Britain.
