Around 60 pots of marijuana plants were seized from a fully-airconditioned room equipped with UV light, water supply, lighting and cooling system at the whole fourth floor.

At least 3.33 kilos of dried marijuana leaves ready for distribution were seized by the authorities.

Meanwhile, Mayor Mayor Francis Zamora said the city government is “100 percent all-out” on its campaign against illegal  drugs.
