Nakhon Phanom’s provincial administration on Tuesday set fire to 8,700 kilograms of seized marijuana to mark the “International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking”.

Provincial Governor Somchai Witdamrong chaired the ceremony, held at 9am on the field in front of the Nakhon Phanom rangers’ command.
Somchai said the marijuana had been seized in drug cases that had been finalised by courts.
