LUCENA CITY–Two alleged marijuana peddlers, one of them a 15-year-old boy, were arrested in buy-bust operations in this city on Tuesday and Wednesday. Anti-illegal drug operatives arrested John Cyrill Almendras, 21, after he sold a sachet of marijuana to an undercover police in Barangay Gulang-Gulang around 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday, said Senior Supt. Authorities seized from Almendras two grams of the “weeds” worth P3,000 in the street market. On Tuesday, police arrested a minor who yielded two grams of marijuana and a sachet of crystal meth (“shabu”) worth P500. With the scarcity of shabu in the local market, a police agent revealed that most drug users have shifted to marijuana.
