MERIDA — According to the delegate of the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) in Yucatan, Juan Manuel León Leon, the marijuana is the most common drug that is seized during operations carried out by different authorities in the state.

In fact, he said, so far this year they have seized 500 kilograms of that narcotic. “If we have found other narcotics, but in smaller quantities, we can even say that in grams,” he added.

In these actions, Leon León emphasized, they seized mainly marijuana.
