On New Year's Eve, the police caught an Uzhgorod resident with marijuana in his pocket

The young man wanted to meet the New Year not just with a glass of champagne in a circle of friends, but also smoking a "joint"... 

On New Year's Eve, on Teatralna Square in Uzhgorod, patrol inspectors of the city police department stopped a 22-year-old local resident for smoking in the wrong place.

During the drawing up of the report, the young man was very nervous, behaving suspiciously, which sparked suspicions of the police officers. When asked whether he had any illegal items, the offender voluntarily, in the presence of witnesses, gave a metallic device for smoking and paper roll with chipped herbal green substance similar to marijuana, weighing about two grams. The seized substance was sent to the Research Forensic Center at the regional Office of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for examination.

For smoking in the wrong place, a report was drawn up against the the offender under Article 175-1 of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offences (smoking tobacco products in prohibited areas), which provides for a warning or a fine ranging from three to ten times the minimum income.

But for possession of drugs, he faces criminal liability. This incident was registered in the Journal of uniform accounting of statements and reports on committed criminal offenses and other events of Uzhgorod City Police Department.
