The NCA stated in its yearly report that around 2,230 kg of marijuana was confiscated Bulgaria's borders, or higher by 32 percent in comparison with 2019.

A considerable rise in cocaine confiscations last year -- 225 kg, in comparison with only 3 kg in the previous year was reported by the agency. It stated that around 183 kg of the cocaine was confiscated in 2020 in two cases in containers with merchandise arriving from South America.
