United Arab Emirates relaxes drug laws

The United Arab Emirates has relaxed some of its drug laws by reducing penalties for people caught with cannabis products. Instead of facing a prison sentence, people found in possession of cannabis will have those drugs confiscated and destroyed. Alongside this change, the minimum sentence for drug offences will be reduced from 2 years to 3 months.
