Sepang Police Seize Ganja-Infused Toothpaste Sent To 2 Politicians
Police has seized a parcel addressed to two politicians, containing a tube of toothpaste believed to be infused with cannabis leaf extract
In a statement yesterday, 13 March, Sepang district police chief ACP Wan Kamarul Azran Wan Yusof said that an officer working in the inquiry office of a ministry had lodged a police report regarding the parcel.
"It was suspected that the parcel contained prohibited items, as last week a government office received a parcel containing 'cannabis leaf' too," Malay Mail quoted him as saying.
The tube has a cannabis leaf logo, with 'Happy Green' written on it
Sepang police confiscated the parcel at a courier hub in Pulau Meranti, Sepang on 10 March.
On the day, at approximately 6.30pm, two police officers and the complainant had gone to the parcel hub.
The item was purchased by the sender with an address in Indonesia through an online platform, and the confiscated items had no connection with the two politicians' addressees, according to Wan Kamarul.
The Narcotics Division is investigating the case under Section 6 of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952. Section 6 deals with restrictions on the possession of raw opium, coca leaves, poppy straw, and cannabis.
