  1. Guys don't ever go to these Arab countries they don't respect you and do not respect your human rights. Also all their empires are built on slaves. Consider coming to India, you will be treated first class. Snow Mountains, beaches, desert and tropical forest are all for you to experience. And weed is partially legal and edibles are completely legal. Enjoy!

  2. Men for a bit thc what a nonsense to ridiculous for words how can this even excist in 2022 . And then alcohol is legal what a disgusting world we live in really no words 💙

  3. Here is why this guys full of rubbish.

    They never search your car unless there is case against the vehicle or person, there is a zero policy in drugs in the uae.

    You simply cannot say it’s ridiculous, it’s there rules stick by them. It’s not the uk.

  4. Respect uae laws simple. Pagan UK government and pagan police should take heed about proper justice. UK and USA allows so much crime and immorality and indecency to happen.

  5. They should release him for Christmas because yes they impose strict sentences for laws in there countries. They need to release him because it's proven medicine anyway and it's harmless . They need to do swift legislation in UAE and change the rules. if the law because it's fact it's only hemp oils. Let him go and give him them back and give him some compensation to him he's a good person. It's beyond a joke. They have to let him go.

  6. Yeah I'd never go to a country like this and they are deterring people from going there by being so backward; even if you follow every rule, you never know what could happen. I mean if they wanna make certain things illegal, that's one thing, but taking away someone's like for 25 years over that is disgusting and evil. That said, I do imagine he will get out much sooner but we'll see…

  7. It’s their law and their way of life….don’t break their laws it’s as simple as that….we all know how you brits treat and think of immigrant in uk. I support Dubai on this

  8. Regardless you should have called up and asked if CBD was legal before taking it over to a very strict conservative country…when I travel anywhere abroad, I take extra caution, I double check what I am taking with me and I use pad locks to secure my bag.

    Also I do my research, I don't believe I should get a free pass to break the law in other countries just because I am white British…I have no sympathy for him.

  9. Why anyone would want to go to a place where your basic human rights are stripped is beyond me. The only people i see going there are middle class yuppie boys wanting attention on their Instagram so they can look like some hard working successful business owner when in reality they're just spending mummy and daddies pocket money

  10. I am shocked and disgusted at this. If you are a wealthy lawyer , and are able to to help. Please do. This country, UK. Has to help this young man, our foreign office has to intervene on a diplomatic level for exoneration. Billy has never done drugs, and this was a mistake, largely by his friend , now at Billy's heavy cost.

  11. I'm wondering why someone from Britain would want to go to a hell hole like Dubai simply to coach football.

    He could have coached football anywhere in Europe but this wasn't good enough, probably because he wouldn't get astronomical wages.

    And this is why he and other people like him end up in prison or dead. Greed! that's why he's in prison. I have no sympathy.

  12. Right lisen up and listen up good 👍 dubai is a place where you cannot take drugs cannot do anything where in Britain you can you get a slap on your hand
    If you know you cannot do illegal stuff why do it
    Aw cbd was his mate well keep better company simple and all mothers think the sun shines out of thier children arses
    When its blatant she does not know him you can scream and shout as much as you like on TV when your in the Arab UAE
    You play by thier rules

  13. So sorry that you are going through this situation. Maybe Reprive the non profit organization that helped 3 young men in Dubai who went through a similar situation can also help your son. I may have spelled it wrong but 3 young men were in jail for a year but were released after they were helped by Reprive. Good luck to you, your son is in my prayers, Psalm 23!

  14. I don't necessarily believe his "friend left it in my car" story. It does sound a bit made up to try and spare himself from further action at the time. But regardless of truth or not, a sentence like that is absolutely embarrassing for the UAE. And exactly why, no matter how many Sky Scrapers they throw up…they will remain so far behind most of the World in terms of their attitude towards things like the justice system. There is no pattern to sentencing here at all. 25 years for being found in possession of some vape oil containing CBD. So what do they sentence serial killers? 400? It makes no sense. The sentence in NO WAY AT ALL fits the crime. And this is why a lot of people are still dubious and unwilling to travel to the UAE. This makes Dubai look like a place to avoid, not a place to visit.

  15. He was caught with MDMB-4en-PINACA, known as spice. This is a deadly substance.

    On top of that, they found large amounts of cash, storage bottles and boxes, and 570 individual cartridges as well as incriminating evidence on his phone and 3rd party witnesses. Good luck explaining that away as a friend's CBD stash that you were unaware of.
