The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency burned Php 134 million worth of confiscated methamphetamine, also known as shabu, and marijuana to prevent the illegal substances from being recycled.

According to PDEA Director General Isidro Lapeña, the destroyed drugs were seized from an operation last November 16, 2016, at Banawe Street, Barangay Manresa, Quezon City.

The melting of the illegal drugs were carried out after the court gave their clearance, and said that it will not be used as evidence for a case.

Officials from PDEA, Department of Justice, Dangerous Drug Board, and the Public Attorney’s Office witnessed the destruction of the drugs, which was done at Cleanleaf International Corporation, Barangay Maysilo, Malabon City last July 4.
