Dubai Customs thwarts 87 marijuana oil smuggling attempts through Dubai airports in 1Q 2019

Dubai – 11 May 2019:  Passenger Operations Department at Dubai Customs made 87 seizures of marijuana oil in 1Q 2019 compared to only 7 seizures in 2018. The department made 36 seizures in total in 2018. 

“It is a huge increase in seizures for this illegal substance. We need to work together with all relevant departments in the country to fight the smuggling of narcotics, especially marijuana oil which is used in e-cigarettes and vape pens” Ibrahim Al Kamali, Director of Passenger Operations Department said. “Raising awareness around the hazards and bad effects of narcotics is very important, especially among young people.”  

Al Kamali said they take all measures to prevent the smuggling of marijuana oil through Dubai airports. 

“Our inspection officers have a very high level of training and skill which enables them to detect these substances efficiently, with the help of highly advanced devices. This is part of our vision of protecting society from the hazards of these dangerous substances.”

Director of passenger Operations Department added they continue developing their smart electronic baggage inspection systems and the Department has launched the Smart Customs Baggage Inspection System using the ideas and innovative suggestions of its employees.

The system helps officers identify risks in suspected suitcases and whether it is safe to inspect them manually.
