MANILA, Philippines — Agents of the Bureau of Customs (BOC) have seized six boxes of liquid marijuana at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia), the agency said on Sunday.

According to the BOC-Naia, the package was initially declared as “ULEI CBD full plant extract” when imported in the country by sender Bayer Jasilica last Friday.

However, upon inspection and test conducted by the authorities, it tested positive for the presence of Tetrahydrocannabinol or liquid marijuana.

The boxes labeled “Lady Mary Farm Cannabidiol CBD Oil BIO” was reportedly shipped from the country Romania, BOC said.

The agency also identified the consignee of the package as Jeffrey Ciabal Perez of San Pablo City, Laguna.

A case was already filed against Perez for the Importation of Dangerous Drugs in the country, and for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act. /je
