The Head of the Denpasar Police Department, AKBP Bambang Yugo Pamungkas, confirmed that the suspect was arrested from his house in Denpasar on Friday (1/4) at 7:00 pm for producing cookies with CBD. He obtained the illegal substance from a man in China.

“We searched the suspect’s house during the arrest and seized evidence from the scene,” AKBP Bambang said on Wednesday (6/4).

The investigation began when the police received information from a Customs officer who became suspicious of packages they had been receiving from China through the Post Office.

On April 1, the police spotted the suspect suspiciously taking a package from a tree in Jalan Tukad Musi and immediately arrested him on the spot. The suspect admitted that he stored the drugs in his house and used it to bake cookies for his customers.

“Per the test from our laboratory, it was confirmed that the package contains CBD which is a derivative product of marijuana. The suspect has been selling them to his loyal costumers,” AKBP Bambang concluded.

The suspect was already imprisoned in 2018 for narcotics abuse. He has been detained along with the evidence as the investigation to find his network is still underway.

Cookies are a gateway drug. This guy could have gone on to cakes and before you know it he opens a bakery and everyone gets hooked.

Seriously? CBD? Every other country has woken up to the therapeutic benefits of CBD but seems we are still living in a cave here.

Should become a great tourist attraction like In Amsterdam. In Amsterdam it’s legal.

@J West, what do you mean "drug"? When it comes to grass, you can still buy in the coffee shop easily. Other stuff actually you can get easily too. Everybody keeps taking shift, Im fed up with it. Im in NL currently (making $$ for Bali actually :D), but Im not taking ANY of it.

@Wayan Bo, Can foreigners still consume the drug in Holland? Wasn’t that cancelled within the past two years? I think Canada is the only outlier western nation where dope can be consumed openly by foreigners. No?

@Wayan Bo, CBD is legal in many countries, as it's not psychoactive, doesn't get people high or stoned.

It's made from hemp, so is hemp rope, paper, fabric etc, and those things are legal.
