American arrested on suspicion of smuggling cannabis oil

97 Comments

Police in Tsukuba, Ibaraki Prefecture, have arrested a 43-year-old American man on suspicion of smuggling cannabis oil.

According to police and Kanto customs officials, Richard Melgarejo, who is an English teacher, was detained after he took possession of a package containing two kilograms of cannabis oil, Fuji TV reported. The package had been sent to a hotel in Ibaraki Prefecture. Melgarejo was arrested on April 26 when he went to the hotel to pick up the package, police said, adding he was sent to prosecutors on Friday.

Customs officials said the cannabis oil was in two bottles marked hair treatment. The banned substance in the two bottles is valued at around 80 million yen.

After arresting Melgarejo, police searched his residence where they found a further five kilograms of cannabis oil, with a street value of about 200 million yen.

Police said they suspect Melgarejo may be part of a smuggling ring.

He is in for a world of pain. Just don't do marijuana in Japan - the risk is not worth it. Have a shochu and wait for your next visit to the States.

According to the website of the English class, he is not just a teacher, he is the owner of the English class.

80 million yen for two bottles of cannabis oil???? That's like 800,000 dollars! I know it's a case of supply and demand but this is ridiculous!

Thought cannabis oil was already legal in Japan, considering its many proven benefits for some health issues.

Don’t agree with any type of smuggling, but it’s time for the government to look into these alternatives medicines.

Not only for the obvious: public health, but also as they would be able to regulate and tax it.

Wake up call!

A couple of summers back my daughter gave me a jar of skin cream from a health foods shop, but after some mental debate over the ingredients I decided not to carry it back to Japan.

Imagine my surprise when my (J) wife produced it from her suitcase, saying, "Here, you forgot this!" Aaaarrrggghhh.... :headbang:

Only a short matter of time before the American comes up with the tired old "I'm innocent I didn't know what was in the package, xenophobic Japanese cops framed me" excuse.

As far as I know it isn't but even in the USA there are 2 types one without THC the other with THC.

The first is technically leg often sold as Hepm oil the other technically is illegal under federal law.

But not a lawyer so just what I could understand from what I could find.

So along the same line CBD Hemp Oil that does not contain any THC and is made only from the plants stem or seeds ( not the THC contain flower tips) is apparently legal and available in Japan from what I have read but I wouldn't know personally.

Importing it is another matter and may be on a restricted list with or without THC present in the oil.

If it contains THC I expect this will not be a good few years for this guy.

Judging from the street value, I am guessing it contains THC.

The first is technically leg often sold as Hepm oil the other technically is illegal under federal law.

Hemp Oil with zero THC, also referred to as CBD Oil is legal, even for importation, as long as it contains zero THC.

The cannabis oil this guy got busted for is most likely the kind with high levels of THC, which is definitely illegal. The fact that he was disguising it as hair products is a pretty good sign of that.

FYI - CBD is the ingredient with most of the health benefits. THC is the ingredient that gets you high. However, there is some clinical evidence that a small amount of THC works symbiotically to boost CBD's efficacy. Unfortunately, Japan doesn't allow even trace amounts of THC, even though such low levels would not get anybody high.

At least they allow CBD oil. So, that's something.

I have no particular sympathy for the guy, as he knew the draconian laws here and decided to gamble. And lost the gamble.

But the claim that THC consumption leads to "trouble" is nonsensical. If anything, it is opposite. Typcally, THC users are the most peaceful and lazy crowd you can imagine.

I am a bit on the fence on that.

In Canada pot is now legal some say this is great.

But then also in Canada they are having an opioid and meth crisis.

One thing that has never happened to me anywhere in Japan in over 30 year was being accosted by a Methhead or other type of junky Tring to get money from me like what happens everytime I go to Vancouver, Toronto or Montreal.

Well yes and no.

Nearly every one I know that was a regular user of pot ended up in one of 2 situations.

1-) they move on to much harder drugs and things went downhill from there.

2-) they just couldn't stop and became so lazy that it affected their home lives, family, relationships to the point of spouses leaving, child services taking the children, etc..

Foolish man. He7s going down for a very long time. 7 kilograms is a lot of oil. Warning to others. Not worth the risk. Smuggle it into a country like Holland or Canada because if you are caught your prison time will be better.

Which goes to show how judging someone by their looks means nothing.

The name is of Spanish origins popular in the USA and central America,

Which actually means nothing as is clear by so many in North America that have names that barely have any connection to their actual ancestry.

Fun Fact

Despite Japan’s position on cannabis, financial disclosures from the country’s Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF), the world’s biggest pension fund, show that it held about $80 million in stakes of weed companies last year, according to Bloomberg.

The GPIF is a top shareholder in Canopy Growth, a publicly-traded Canadian cannabis company, holding a stake worth more than $50 million. Some $17 million was invested in the Cronos Group, a Toronto company that owns pot brands like Spinach and Happy Dance.

While we are at it, let's take a jab at the Japanese as well. Isn't it the Japanese men who say "I don't remember", when they commit sexual assault, rape, murder? This is just some oil..not any of those things I listed.

I wonder if the police followed proper procedure or just guessed that it might be some illegal substance and forced him to confess and made an illegal search and seizure. The temptation of that large amount of easy money overwhelmed him. Probably for every person caught there are hundreds of others that import it without detection.

How can they arrest him "on suspicion" of smuggling cannabis oil? Either he had it or he didn't. Which is it?

A lot of speculation and strange guessing, I know the Japanese police are not my most trusted police force but:

I wonder if the police followed proper procedure or just guessed that it might be some illegal substance and forced him to confess and made an illegal search 

Check out a few episodes of border security UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand.

Any package coming into a country is legally subject to being searched no warrant needed. ( Christmas present sent to my children have been opened by Japan customs many times).

Packages arriving are regularly tested for traces of illegal substances, drug dogs used, once something is suspected the package is opened and tested if something illegal is found it is closed back up sent to it's destination in a sting operation as happened here, after that reasonable suspicious can be used to search and or a warrant.

Nothing unusual of different in Japan than any other country.

2 kilograms? That’s a lot. What a silly man to attempt to smuggle or send that amount (or any amount) in to a foreign country, especially one with such strict drug laws.

However, the comments some people make on this website about marijuana are incredible. Do they not realise that this drug is legal in many countries and many states of the USA?

These people seem to be unable to differentiate it from heroin, crack cocaine or methamphetamine, in the way they describe its users and the effect it supposedly has on people and society.

Alcohol causes far more social and health problems.

7 ( +8 / -1 )

Yep pot is legal and if you look at countries where it is you also find high use of opioids, meth cocaine.

When was the last time some Methhead or junky tried getting money from you in Japan? I will guess never.

Canada in most major cities it is a common scene.

Now the calls to decriminalize hard drugs or even legalise them have started now that pot is legal.

Those that supported legal pot and now legal opioids are blaming everyone but the addicts for their overdoses and deaths demanding that narcan kits or similar be available in every police car, public building, etc... To save these fools.

@proxy

I have heard people say just as you are saying.

Then we read about the middle class husband and wife that use pot and the occasional opioids found dead in their nice suburban home by their children after they overdoses on recreational fentanyl.

These are not the street drug addicts or they weren't yet and they were/are not an isolated case in Canada.

It seems that the lessons learned in the 80s concerning recreational use of cocaine wasn't learned and not it is opioids and this idea has been made more acceptable now the using cannabis seems just fine and the calls to make the rest legal has begun.

Cannabis oil needs to be mixed with tobacco to be smoked. Stronger than weed or hashish. Can be mixed into cellulose and recycled back into hashish, baked in the oven.

@Antiquesaving It is difficult to compare Canada with Japan for a lot of reasons. Probably 90% of elementary school teachers are woman and 90% of the elected school board trustees are woman and if a boy struggles to sit in a circle at a young age to talk about their feelings the system "criminalizes" them and there is a rush to put them on a methylphenidate. A well know side effect of these drugs is substance use disorder.

Yes, I know these behaviour modification drugs are given to girls too but most children given these are boys because mostly female teachers are sexist against boys.

I guess he thought the reward would be worth the risk, bad choice obviously. Japan is so strict on drugs and I am definitely ok with that. Whatever his views or others on legalization of marijuana and it's potential health benefits if the law says ILLEGAL then that's it, no matter what county. I remember that show Locked Up Abroad, man I feel bad for his parents.

The Nihonjin have NO ILLUSIONS about Americans so "more suspicious" is invalid. Secondly, when they become familiar with the highly friendly and calm nature of one's relationship with Cannabis, they will not miss the sloppy artificial exuberance produced by a toxic product of rot, and there will be more Japanese People thankful for this particular 'foreign impudence' pushing, even so painfully, against the impaired, senescent cranial circulatory systems of Japan's archaic leadership.

7 kilograms is a lot of oil it takes a lot of pot to make that much. Sackloads. I would say that the Japanese court system would take this pretty seriously. 6-8 years or something not just 3 as suggested above. After 17 years in Japan this guy was well aware of the consequences and took a huge risk.

Emplaced social strictures are hard to change, but will eventually. The Japanese People will at some time appreciate their ability to enjoy the benefits of cannabis in all its forms.

3 ( +3 / -0 )

Whether it's true or not that pot is harmless, it doesn't matter when deciding to smuggle it into Japan. It's illegal, and when he filled out his visa paperwork he promised to follow the law here. He's destroyed not only his own life and business, but also that of his family (if he has one), his employees, who are now our of work and will be investigated and are probably not employable in Tsukuba because of their connection to him, and his customers, who will now be gossiped about and be under suspicion by their teachers. Before anyone says "That's wrong and shouldn't happen", I agree, but he HAD to know that it DOES happen, and he put everyone at risk anyway. For Pete's sake, even if you are going to commit a crime out of desperation, go to the US or Canada where the penalties are lower! Not an iota of sympathy for him.

If it is for vaping, that uses tiny amounts, so the street value of a one-litre bottle will be way higher than the equivalent weight in buds or cannabis resin.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the Japanese authorities can arrest you if you have 'substances' in your body, taken legally abroad, even if you have nothing in your luggage or possessions.

Our, Japanese government loves to tax and tax the citizens. If there could be a tax for breathing air when I live on the third floor, then they would implement it.

Now imagine when one day our government wakes up and realizes that by legalizing light drugs (marijuana, hashish,..) they could tax this, tax the hell of it. Like a lot of European countries do. Because they realized a long time ago that it's easier to control it than fight it. Like alcohol, which is also bad for your health.

By the way, some of the drugs available in the pharmacies here are banned or prescription drugs in many countries.

Few Japanese are aware that the Cannabis Control Act (taima torishimari hô in Japanese), the first Japanese law ever to restrict cultivation and possession of cannabis, was passed in 1948 when Japan was not a sovereign country but still under American occupation, under the supreme command of General Douglas MacArthur.

At the time there wasn't any talk about a "marijuana problem" in Japan. The law seems to have been passed only because a few years earlier a similar law had been passed in the USA. Far more harmful and then already widely abused amphetamines remained legal because at the time they were legal in the USA too.

This should not have happened if the guy had a proper understanding regarding the national rules for travelers to Japan who want to carry CBD Oil with them. Most of the countries are starting to ease their travel restrictions with introducing new rules on the use of CBD Oil. That's why now its time when airlines should also stand and teach their passengers regarding what products are prohibited in destination countries, and this should happen before they are boarding passengers on their planes.
