Two men have been arrested after a large meth bust in Christchurch.

About 3kg of the drug, with a street value of more than $2 million, was seized by police following an investigation into the supply of methamphetamine in Canterbury.

Several thousand dollars in cash was also seized during a series of search warrants.

Two men - aged 31 and 39 - have been charged with possession for supply.

"Methamphetamine is a highly dangerous and addictive drug which continues to cause significant harm in the community," a police statement said.

The two men are due to appear in the Christchurch District Court on Tuesday.

"Anyone affected by drug addiction is urged to seek help through the Alcohol and Drug Helpline on 0800 787 797, or free text 1737 to speak with a trained counsellor," police added.
