As reported by Japanese news website Ivedoor on December 26, popular Japanese actor Yuichi Murasaki (also known as Chounosuke Murasugi) is suspected of possessing approximately 0.5 grams of liquid cannabis at his residence on November 29.
In November, the Fukushima County police conducted a test on an electronic pod found during a house search and discovered that it contained liquid marijuana.
Suspect Murasugi was arrested on December 11th for allegedly trafficking controlled substances, including marijuana. The Fukushima prefectural police have cited hindrances in their investigation as the reason for not disclosing his confession or denial.
The police believe that the suspect, Cunshan, was in possession of cannabis oil for personal use. They are currently investigating how he obtained the cannabis oil.
