PETALING JAYA: Calling himself a “caregiver”, the self-styled Dr Ganja often posted on Facebook extolling the “health benefits” of ganja and that his products could “cure” chronic diseases.

Posting pictures of his products – chocolate brownies, cakes and chocolates laced with marijuana and hemp oil – he was, however, careful never to disclose the prices.

The pictures on his various social media accounts show him smoking from a bong, his clients, and even children he claimed to have been cured of diseases such as epilepsy, leukaemia and cancer.

There are also at least four videos of him conducting marijuana and cannabis “classes” at his home on YouTube.

He has more than 2,500 followers on his personal Facebook profile and over 3,200 on his Facebook page.

On his LinkedIn profile, he claim­ed that he had treated over 4,000 patients with chronic diseases.

He also claimed to be the founder of the “Green Care and Cure Club” and to have served as an army offi­cer for 22 years from 1977 to 1999.

In his neighbourhood in Kam­pung Delek Dalam, Klang, a 25-year-old housewife who only wanted to be known as Ani said that on Friday, she spotted two big lorries outside the house of a man the locals knew as “medicine man”.

“There were people in the lorry but they did not look like police officers,” she said.

Another resident, who lives directly across the man’s house, said the place was surrounded by police that day.

The woman, who declined to be named, said many people came to look for the man to “berubat” (be treated).

“They would always come to my place to ask for directions,” she added.

She said the man’s adult children stayed in the house after he was taken away by police.

One of his relatives, who runs a food stall by his gate, said they had asked her to keep people away from the house.

“They were traumatised by the incident and are still in shock,” she said, adding that she was told by police to leave her stall during the raid.
