Drug syndicates are taking advantage of the rich natural resources of the country and the sorry state of our farmers. They are able to grow hectares of Cannabis in the mountains of La Union, Benguet and Ilocos Sur. The marijuana plantations are well hidden in the thick part of the mountains, rendering any aerial surveillance attempts futile. Before operatives are able to reach the plantation by foot, they will have to cross 6 rivers and climb 2 mountains. Time of the essence. The BITAG team, together with northern operatives, quickly initiated an operation to destroy the plantation before the drugs are transported to Metro Manila and Calabarzon.
