The world’s largest drug destruction operation: Brazil and Paraguay destroyed a total of 3,800 tons of marijuana

According to EFe news agency reported on December 8, Brazilian police revealed that they worked with Paraguayan authorities to destroy 3,800 tons of marijuana, which is believed to be the world’s largest marijuana eradication operation to date.
According to an announcement by Brazil’s Federal police, the new alliance took action (OperacionNuevaAlianza), which it described as “the largest police operation in international cooperation aimed at eliminating illegal cannabis cultivation.”
The fight against illicit cannabis cultivation, which has mainly targeted forested border areas and indigenous settlements, has been carried out in multiple stages by the Brazilian Federal Police and the Paraguayan National Anti-Drug Agency. For now, the final stage of the operation is the Gandet region of Paraguay, which borders the Brazilian states of Parana and Mato Grosso do Sul.
Police said the operation succeeded in stopping the spread of drugs in the area and destroyed an operational base used by 430 drug traffickers and related criminal organizations.
“Measures to stop the delivery of illegal cannabis have effectively stopped the operation of a widespread and organized criminal network.” The network includes a criminal syndicate that destroys the environment and sells weapons and other drugs.”
Much of the cannabis from Paraguay is shipped to Brazil to meet the needs of major criminal gangs in the South American giant country.
According to data released by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), there are 1 million police operations worldwide each year, of which 5,000 tons of cannabis are arrested.
