GEORGE TOWN: Two men and a woman were arrested for cultivating ganja (cannabis) plants in a luxury condominium unit in Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur, on Monday.

He said police also seized 54 pots of ganja plants, ganja leaves weighing 2.6kg and 48 ganja seeds, all valued at about RM1.21 million.

He said all suspects have been remanded until next Monday to assist in the investigation.

Police also confiscated a Toyota Vios worth RM45,000.

Investigations are being conducted under Section 6B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 for cannabis cultivation and Section 39B of the same law for drug trafficking.
