Police intelligence agents and anti-narcotics operatives discovered almost P46 million of marijuana in two separate raids on plantation sites in Benguet.

Gen. Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar, chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP), said the operations conducted on Friday morning stemmed from a tip-off about marijuana cultivation in Palwa, Sagpat, Kibungan town.

He said the marijuana plants were uprooted and burned on the two plantation sites.

Aside from fully-grown marijuana, Eleazar said 12 sacks of marijuana were also discovered some 300 meters away from one of the plantation sites.
