Although other countries in the world have slowly started to allow and legalise the use of marijuana for medical as well as recreational use, there is currently nothing concrete in regards to Malaysia’s status on it.

Some people are currently facing a death sentence for growing marijuana trees in their home.

Recently, a 78-year-old former Malaysian diplomat was found with 102 marijuana tress planted all around his home in Janda Baik, Pahang.

The raid was carried out by policemen from the Narcotics Crime Investigation Division (JSJN) around 6pm yesterday (23 May).

“It is understood that the police were there to detain the elderly man before finding rows of several boundaries of land believed to be used to plant cannabis trees.”

Pahang police chief Datuk Ramli Mohamed Yoosuf said that the suspect learnt how to grow and process the drug through YouTube videos and that he bought the seeds from KL, 7 years ago.

He said that the suspect admitted to planting the cannabis trees since 2015.

“The police found a total of 102 cannabis trees which has a value of RM61,200.”

Ramli added that the police managed to confiscate dried cannabis leaves weighing 1.02kg which is worth RM2,500 as well as a bottle of cannabis oil which was being sold for RM250.

Meanwhile, the police have also arrested the former diplomat’s son at a house in Shah Alam.

“Urine test results found that the son was positive for cannabis while his father was negative and both had no previous criminal record,” he added.
