DUBAI – An Indian man has been jailed for planting cannabis seeds at his residence in Jebel Ali.
The 32-year-old worker alleged that was not aware that the seeds were cannabis and thought that he was planting tomato seeds instead.
Police raided his residence after getting a tip-off from an informant. Police seized marijuana from his possession.
The Indian worker also tested positive for hashish. His case was referred to court where he was convicted of planting, consuming and possessing cannabis and marijuana.
He was also sentenced to deportation, apart from a two-year jail term. He has appealed the judgement and is scheduled to appear in court next month. GAD/Expat Media
