KUWAIT: The information technology department of criminal detectives discovered what they described as the largest quantity of marijuana in Kuwait, and arrested two people, Canadian and Kuwaiti, in the process. Information was received that the suspects traded in marijuana, so a team was formed to collect information. Based on the investigations, detectives raided the Canadian man’s residence and found 39 marijuana seedlings, along with other quantities ready for sale, in addition to marijuana seeds. The citizen was arrested with eight seedlings and half a kilogram of the drugs, in addition to seeds and fertilizers. He also had an unlicensed firearm. Both suspects confessed to selling marijuana, and the citizen said he got the seedlings from the Canadian who also gave him instructions on how to plant them. Both were sent to concerned authorities.
