    So he got through the sniffer dogs at baggage check at airport. No good systems for detection ??

    Given that we are a hub for illicit drugs, surely more effective detection should be enforced at the airport.

    More reason why we should not have another international airport in the north- another gateway to the country for drug trafficking, which we struggle to control.
