On October 4, 2021, Canada Border Services Agency’s Pacific Region Intelligence Section, with assistance from the Agency’s National Targeting Centre, identified a container of interest and referred it for examination. Using a wide range of detection tools and technology, and upon physical inspection, CBSA noted discrepancies in the packaging and the substance within the bags.  The marine container, imported from Kenya, was declared to contain bags of tea leaves but was found to contain 125 bags (2,061kg) of Khat , a stimulant drug derived from a shrub and indigenous to East Africa and Southern Arabia. Khat is considered by the World Health Organization as an addictive drug of abuse.
