MANILA, Philippines—Anti-narcotics agents arrested a 20-year-old Korean national for selling a sachet of marijuana in San Francisco City, La Union province, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) said on Thursday.
Kim Sang Su of San Francisco, San Fernando City was seized by PDEA agents and La Union police after he sold dried marijuana leaves in a plastic sachet to an undercover agent on Monday.
