7.7 tonnes of marijuana seized in Colombia

Bogota, March 27 : Colombian police have seized more than 7.7 tonnes of marijuana that allegedly belonged to the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), reports Xinhua.

Police found 158 packages which tested positive for cannabis in two trucks stopped at a toll booth Tuesday, authorities said.

FARC rebels reportedly planned to distribute the marijuana in Colombia's capital.

The rebels are believed to rely partly on the drug trade to fund their movements, mostly by taxing Colombia's cocaine producers and traffickers.
