Former priest arrested for possessing 65 kg of marijuana

Police in the Slutsk district seized 65 kg marijuana in the house of a 70-year-old pensioner. Apart from the "grass", the former priest kept 6 kg of ganja. During the arrest, the old man remained calm and told the agents about the healing capabilities of marijuana.

But when officers told him that he was facing up to 13 years in jail for drug trafficking, he immediately called his personal attorney.

The Belarusian Orthodox Church said that the "druglord" from the Slutsk district was excluded from the church for bad behaviors as far back as on October 2, 1986.
