Hong Kong Customs Intercepts Canadian Pot

  1. HONG KONG - Hong Kong customs officials arrested five people for allegedly ordering marijuana by mail from Canada with a total local market value of about 2.1 million Hong Kong dollars (US$269,200), officials and news reports said.

    The Sing Tao Daily newspaper reported Sunday that the cannabis was in boxes purporting to contain ginseng tea.

    Officers found 7 kilograms (15.6 pounds) of the drug in several mail packages between April 8 and last Friday, Hong Kong's Customs and Excise Department said in a statement Saturday.

    The government statement didn't provide further information on the five suspects arrested, but the Sing Tao report said they were men ages 23-40.

    The statement didn't say whether they'd been charged.

    Importing marijuana carries a maximum penalty of HK$100,000 (US$12,820) and 15 years' imprisonment in Hong Kong.
