Late last month, a 51-year-old resident of Azumino City, Nagano Prefecture, Kazuhiko Shirasaka, allegedly called together a camping party with around 30 other people including 62-year-old Naofumi Katsuragawa who lived in nearby Ikeda town.
The party kicked off on the evening of Sept 28 and would run into the next day. Those in attendance were indulging in marijuana both by smoking as well as by battering and frying it into crispy cannabis tempura.
Either there was large amount of smoking going on or the ragtime was a little too loud as someone sent in a report to the police of a “marijuana party in progress at the campsite.”
Police arrived on the scene and arrested Shirasaka and Katsuragawa for violating the Cannabis Control Act along with 40-year-old Takao Iwasaki of Aichi Prefecture.
Shirasaka and Iwasaki both face charges of possession of a controlled substance while Katsuragawa is also accused of growing 97 cannabis plants at his home.
