Dubai authorities stress zero tolerance for JWH drug

Dubai authorities have warned the public against carrying, peddling or using JWH, a synthetic drug that can cause hallucination, confusion and bouts of panic and is commonly known as Spice, stressing it was a crime that would be dealt with no tolerance, Khaleej Times has reported. The UAE is the first Arab country to enlist this substance in the Anti-Narcotics Law, which means that whoever possesses or uses the substance can be penalised, said Chief Prosecutor of the Dubai Drug Prosecution Walid Faqai. The substance cannot be used for any medical purposes, Al Faqai pointed out.
