Cannabis Resin Seizures in Algeria

Between January and June 2013, security officials in Algeria seized 78 tons of cannabis resin in the country.

The amount seized was higher than the 71 tons of marijuana that was seized during the first half of 2012.

Most of the cannabis products that enter Algeria is trafficked from neighboring Morocco.
