LUCENA CITY –– Police arrested a notorious peddler of marijuana or “weeds” in Lopez town in Quezon province on Sunday night.

Lopez police reported that anti-illegal drug operatives collared Aldwin Baclao, 28, after he sold a pack of marijuana to an undercover police agent in a transaction in Barangay San Antonio around 9:45 p.m.

Seized were three sachets of marijuana ready for distribution to illegal drug users in the village.

The suspect is facing charges for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.

FEATURED STORIES

In December last year, the United Nations (UN) Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) removed marijuana from the most dangerous category of drugs.

However, the Dangerous Drugs Board and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, maintained that the country’s drug laws would prevail in terms of marijuana use.
