Canada Border Services Agency seized over 3.3 tonnes of chemicals used to make drugs at Toronto Airport
The Canada Border Services Agency on Thursday said it has seized over 3.3 tonnes of chemicals used to make ecstasy and other drugs at Toronto Pearson International Airport, between the months of June and July.
The substances were found in multiple separate shipments examined by border services officers, CBSA said. The shipments were exclusively arriving from Asia.
The chemicals are used to manufacture ecstasy drugs that act on the central nervous system and can cause changes in mood, awareness, and behavior.
