Portuguese Authorities Siezed Millions Of Weed Products Over Last Four Years
Numerous cannabis-related inspections have resulted in more than 4.3 million units and nearly 75 liters of confiscated weed products, totaling some €133,898 ($144,425), reported Business of Cannabis.
Ana Oliveira, Portugal's chief food safety inspector, said 31 countervailing proceedings and 18 criminal proceedings have been initiated concerning product seizures.
Cannabis is not officially legal in Portugal though its possession and use are decriminalized, resulting in a hazy situation for all involved. Over 100 stores are selling CBD and other hemp derivatives with less than 0.3% THC.
