A Chinese tourist in Langkawi was recently detained by the police for smoking from a bong outside a shopping mall

Sin Chew Daily, as translated by The Star, reported that the elderly man was on a five-day, four-night tour with his wife.

It was later discovered that the man tested negative for drugs and was instead smoking "red tobacco"

He claimed that he brought the bong through Malaysian customs without being stopped by authorities because it was legal.
