Marijuana Buy Earns Bonus of an Extended Stay in Bali

German Tourist Facing Prison after Arrest at Kuta Hotel in Bali for Marijuana Possession.

(1/24/2011) The grave consequences of "adding a bit of spice" to a Bali holiday by purchasing marijuana was underlined, once again, with the arrest of a 31-year-old German, Andreas Wolfgang Binder, at a hotel on Jalan Poppies I on Friday, January 21, 2011.

As reported by the National News Agency Antara, police from the Denpasar police headquarters arrested the man with 1.26 grams of cannabis after receiving reports form local citizens of a suspicious transaction between two men involving a "small brown packet."

The German was apprehended at 7:00 pm on Friday night. Binder reportedly told police he purchased the illegal drugs on the streets from a man he did not know.

Police believe the man bought the drugs from a member of a Kuta drug syndicate. Members of Bali's anti-narcotics squad continue to investigate the case while holding the German under arrest.
