You are right, this is Japan. That's why they will shake their finger at him, and ask him nicely not to do it again before they release him with no real consequence.

5.7 grams of coke is a respectable amount, especially here in Japan.

He'd get the same or less in NZ.

Yates was arrested on June 27 after his name surfaced during the investigation into Kabashima's case...

After Kabashima totally dogged him out..

Hes looking at some pretty serious charges with that amount of blow laying around...

don't do drugs in Japan.

It's ok to do drugs in Japan if they are on the list of approved intoxicants, like alcohol.

Drugs not on the list of approved intoxicants should be avoided altogether.

His team mate had already been arrested and he didn't think to get rid of his stash?

Pragmatic and spot on.

anybody know how much snow 5.7 grams is good for out of interest is that a decent few sessions or more ?

From the sounds of it possibly many more. We don't know the details but yeah how would they think to go to his place unless Kabashima said something.

Fired relatively quickly - so no longer a Toyota Rugby Player. Misleading heading. SOP for Japanese companies who fear for their reputation, and possible negative impact on sales.

Real Men don't do drugs.
