NCB bust drug smuggling, seizes marijuna worth Rs 55 lakh | India News

MUMBAI: The narcotic control bureau (NCB) busted an international drug trafficking racket through courier services and have arrested two persons with one kg of American Weed (Curated marijuana) valued at Rs 50 to 55 lakh.
What has baffled the security agencies is the fact that till the recent Sushant Singh death case, ganja was considered a petty drug but during the course of investigations of the case the agencies were enlightened with the imported curated marijuana. Sources said that there is a lot of difference between Indian Ganja and foreign weed. Bud size: Size of cannabis buds in India is small. This is because in India no one grows weed in a professional way. While in foreign countries, they give the plant good fertilizers which help the plant to produce bigger buds. Secondly the THC is the chemical compound which is found in cannabis buds and this is what makes us high. In Indian weed THC level is less compared to foreign weed. This imported weed is used by elite socialites and Bollywood celebrities.

Since less flights are operating due to the outbreak of pandemic and various agencies are breaking the backbone of drug smuggling, the drug smugglers are heavily relying on smuggling the contraband through air couriers.

Acting on the specific tip off the NCB on Friday and Saturday intercepted a parcel at Lonavala post office in Pune and seized 1036 grams of curated marijuana which was sourced from USA and was destined to Mumbai and Ahmedabad.
Based on the source destination the NCB late on Saturday arrested Shrimay Shah, a resident of Ahmedabad in Gujarat and Jaiprakash Tupe, a resident of Nerul in Navi Mumbai. While Shah is believed to be into peddling, Tupe is the consumer.
