Asian ‘farmers’ in UAE arrested for planting marijuana on employer’s farm


Abu Dhabi Police have arrested two residents in the capital for planting marijuana on their employer’s farm.

In a video posted by the police force which shows how they raided the area, it revealed that 14 Indian cannabis plants have been found planted on the farm. 

The General Prosecutor ordered to uproot and preserve the addictive plant. It was also found out that the owner of the farm did not visit the accused frequently. 

Brig. Gen. Taher Ghareeb Al Dhaheri, Director of the Anti-Narcotics Directorate in the Criminal Security Sector, called on farm owners to follow up on their workers, provide advice and instructions to them, and urged them not to commit any legal violations such as possession of prohibited items or cultivation of narcotic substances such as cannabis.
