CB has conducted a intensive operation against the illegal import of curated marijuana (bud), which is primarily sourced from USA and Canada and has huge market demand in Mumbai.  In all, 3.5 Kg of bud has been seized from foreign post offices based on the specific inputs. The widespread use and demand of bud in Mumbai region has jacked up the prices in the grey market and it has huge pecuniary gains in the trafficking. The sourcing of the bud is primarily through the Darknet, which gives the layers of the anonymity to the buyers and sellers. The economic transactions in these types of international drug trafficking is based on the cryptocurrency dealings.

In the operations at Delhi, the source of the bud was found to be USA.
