The Bekasi Police have arrested EDB, 28, a resident of Jatimakmur, Pondok Gede, for allegedly growing cannabis in his house. 

According to the police, EDB had three pots of cannabis, which had grown to about two meters tall, on the second floor of his house. 

During the raid on Tuesday, the police confiscated the trees and a jar of dried cannabis. 

EDB reportedly bought the cannabis seeds from his friend who lived in Bali had them delivered using a courier service.

"EDB said he planted the cannabis seeds seven months ago. He lived alone in his house," Bekasi Police deputy chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Wijonarko said, as reported by kompas.com

To the police, EDB said he planted the cannabis for his own consumption because he had been an addict for some time, Wijonarko said. 

Despite the statement, Wijonarko said the police were still investigating whether EDB was also a marijuana dealer. (cal)
