Man caught with drugs in e-cigarettes, candies at Dubai airport
The man claimed they were for personal use only.
An American citizen, who was caught with marijuana oil and candies stuffed with cannabis, stood trial at the Dubai Court of First Instance on Wednesday.
The case dates back to September 4 when the 42-year-old American man was apprehended at the Dubai International Airport after customs officers found contraband in his luggage.
He remained in detention ever since.
The man confessed to possessing the drugs, but claimed they were for personal use only.
According to the Dubai Police crime lab, the General Directorate of Criminal Evidence and Forensics, as many as 37 e-cigarette filters containing marijuana oil, a quantity of heroin and another quantity of cannabis oil, were seized from the traveller.
A total of 147 candies stuffed with cannabis, weighing over 818 grams, were also found in his baggage. Besides, 19 controlled tablets were confiscated from the man.
He was then referred to the General Directorate of Anti-Narcotics.
A ruling will be issued on December 22.
