THE Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) has arrested two male Singaporeans, aged 22 and 23, for allegedly possessing synthetic cannabis.
This is the first arrest made for offences related to New Psychoactive Substances after such substances were listed as Class A controlled drugs on May 1.
The two men were arrested in a shopping centre in Tampines.
CNB officers found 71.7gm of synthetic cannabis, or “K2”, on them.
The 22-year-old male was suspected to have been trafficking in synthetic cannabis. CNB officers followed up with a raid of the suspect’s home and recovered another 22.3gm of synthetic cannabis.
“CNB will continue to take strong enforcement action against abusers and traffickers of New Psychoactive Substances to keep our streets drug-free,” CNB warned in a statement. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
