A harsh toke for Grooverider

Dubai's really doing a great job of holding onto its position as Most Fucked-up Place on Earth (subcategory: No Civil War Currently Happening). I'm pretty sure importing laborers to build a giant artificial archipelago in the shape of the earth's landmasses under near-slavery conditions would've given them a lock all by itself, but just in case they've started sending tourists to prison for importing extremely insignificant amounts of drugs.

The latest victim is drum 'n' bass godfather Grooverider, who just caught a four-year sentence for trying to get less than a tenth of an ounce of weed through customs. That is approximately the amount of weed you can scrape out of Lil Wayne's dreads. (That's not even the most insane case: thanks to special drug-detecting equipment in Dubai's airports, a 43-year-old Brit recently got the same sentence for "0.003g of the drug--an amount invisible to the naked eye.") 

I'm not about to tell Dubai how to run their shit--mostly because they scare the fuck out of me--but they should really take it easy on Grooverider. Don't they know that science has proven it's impossible to enjoy drum 'n' bass without being high?
