An Asian expatriate received a jail sentence of 20 years and a fine of QR 400,000 followed by deportation by a Doha Criminal Court for illicit drug dealing and consumption.

Gulf Times reports that according to the local Arabic daily Arrayah the defendant, a Bangladeshi, was convicted for possessing marijuana and hashish for both personal use and trade.

 He was arrested while trying to sell marijuana to an undercover police agent at Al-Rayyan Family Park.

Both the accused and the agent agreed on the delivery place and time. The transaction was conducted under the surveillance of the police.

As the defendant was trying to hand over the drugs to the agent, police forces arrested the dealer and seized from him some cigarettes stuffed with hashish mixed with tobacco.

Subsequently, he was escorted to his house, where police found some small amounts of hashish and marijuana, besides a number of such cigarettes.

Blood tests of the arrested showed that he was also taking hashish.

You may come from a country where weed is legal or at least decriminalized and like to have your "smoke". Don't even think about getting from the streets because the Cannabis laws here are still kind of harsh.

Personally I recommend Greenie ( haha420kush@gmail com ) a local here in Qatar. He is such a reliable and convenient local plug. He sorted us in style during our visit. He is popularly known and highly recommended. You won't regret. He is a lifesaver and always have in stock what you are looking for at moderate prices.

All deals are done are face to face.
