Razul Pandulo, chief of the Datu Montawal municipal police, are now trying to identify the propagators of the marijuana shrubs planted neatly in rows on patches arable lands in an interior area at the border of Montawal and Pagalungan town, also in Maguindanao.

The marijuana plants were seized with the help of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency. The joint government-MILF activity that led to seizure of the illegal plants was observed by representatives from the office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process.
