A 22-year-old university student was on Friday charged at the Chuka High Court with being in possession of marijuana.
Magistrate Mwanamkuu Sudi heard that on August, 25, 2016 Tobby Gideon Odingo was caught in possession of 500 grams of bhang valued at Sh2, 500 in his house at Ndagani in Chuka.
The accused pleaded guilty of the charges but claimed that the value of the illegal substance was Sh300 and not Sh2, 500, saying most of the material nabbed was chuff.

The case will be mentioned September 8, 2016 and heard on date September 20, 2016.
