Dubai authorities jailed a 26-year-old expat for attempting to hide e-cigarette filters filled with cannabis liquids in a bag of candies that was eventually found and confiscated by authorities.

Reports from the Court of First Instance state that the man went to Dubai International Airport to pick up the package that contained the illegal drugs earlier this year in March.

“I was on the field at a shipping agency when a consignment arrived from the US. It raised our suspicions as its papers said that it contained personal belongings that include shoes, a pair of eyeglasses, and a bag of candies,” said a customs inspector who perused the man’s belongings.

When they opened the bag of candies they found eight e-cigarette filters with hashish liquid, which weighed 102g in total.
