What Decriminalisation? Malta’s Police Are Still Arresting People For Smoking Cannabis And Sending Press Releases About it

Decriminalisation laws seem to be falling on deaf ears after police raided a hotel room in St Julian’s and arrested a couple for smoking weed – and actually felt the need to issue a press release about their half-smoked joint.

A  21-year-old man from Ħamrun and a 19-year-old woman from Żabbar were arrested after a report was filed to police.

The police seized cannabis, a joint, and grinder. Images released by the police indicate that the amount seized was less than 3.5g. Anything below that limit is considered personal use.

The arrest formed part of a wide-ranging police press statement covering a number of drug-related cases. 

One included the raid of a Santa Luċija residence, which involved the arrest of a 48-year-old woman in connection to 50 sachets of cocaine. Another involved the arrest of a  49-year-old woman in Msida, who had received a postal package of cannabis to her house.

Julian doesn’t like to talk about himself. But if he did, he would let you know that he’s into anything that has got to do with politics, the environment, social issues, and human interest stories.
