Half a ton of Skunk variety marijuana, with a high concentration of psychotropic substanceswas intercepted by the authorities in one of the branches of the Amazon River, which connects southern Colombia with Brazil.

According to information from the Navy, apparently the herb was grown in the department of Putumayo and would be exported to the city of Manaus on a boat, guarded by a criminal group.

A source warned the Navy what was happening, and it in turn alerted the Brazilian Federal Police, which intercepted the vessel in the town of Villa Bittencourt, in the State of Amazonas. The criminals apparently left her abandoned and escaped.

Upon inspection, the police found 544 kilos of marijuana, valued in the foreign market at 3 million dollars.

According to specialized cannabis portals, the Skunk variety seed was designed in laboratories in the United States in the 70s. The plant has a higher concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)the compound that produces the psychoactive effects of this drug.

The inappropriate use of this type of marijuana, such as mixing it with alcohol and other drugs, exposes the user to suffering states of paranoia, panic attacks, hallucinations and excessive sleeping

As EL COLOMBIANO has been denouncing, marijuana trafficking between Colombia and Brazil along the Amazon river routes is strongly influenced by the Carolina Ramírez front of the Central General Staff (EMC) of the FARC.

Its leader is “Danilo Alvizú”, one of the trusted men of Néstor Gregorio Vera (“Iván Mordisco”)the top head of the EMC.

These criminals serve as suppliers to organizations that manage vice plazas in Brazil’s main cities, such as the Red Command (Comando Vermelho), the Familia do Norte and the Primeiro Comando da Capital (First Capital Command or PCC).
