PDEA Director Aaron Aquino led the destruction of the drugs at the Integrated Waste Management Inc. facility in Trece Martinez City, Cavite, consisting of shabu, marijuana, ephedrine, cocaine, toluene and expired medicines.

The drugs were destroyed through thermal decomposition, a chemical process that prevents the drugs from being recycled.

This is the fourth destruction of illegal drugs since Aquino was appointed PDEA director.
