The arrest was made by officers of the Policía de Control de Drogas (PCD) – Drug Control Police, after they discovered that the individual, originally from Italy, had a checked suitcase that had a double lining, inside which the drug was discovered.

Hashish is obtained from a purified resin, which is extracted from selected cannabis plants, usually grown in controlled environments.

It has a higher level of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) than common marijuana. THC is the psychoactive component of the plant.
