The police reportedly found that the arrested persons were using Amazon’s India shopping website to order and smuggle marijuana to various states.

As per the report, the smugglers allegedly used the Amazon India platform to order and deliver marijuana, which is listed under the guise of dry stevia leaves, a natural food sweetener.
