Bulgarian police seize over two tonnes of cannabis .
Sofia. Bulgarian police seized more than two tonnes of cannabis in several villages along the southern border with Greece, a local police spokeswoman told AFP Monday.
"Over two tonnes of the drug were confiscated during a special police operation carried out in a number of villages in the region, which are notorious for growing cannabis," spokeswoman Gergana Moralieva said.
Bulgaria is a major transit point on the so-called Balkan route, which brings heroin and other illicit drugs to Western Europe, but the cannabis cultivated in the country is primarily for domestic consumption, according to the latest US Department of State narcotics control report.
