The use or sale of cannabis is banned in Hong Kong under the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, which came into effect in 1969. Any person who cultivates any plant of the genus cannabis faces a HK$100,000 fine and 15 years in prison. In 1994, two top High Court judges said cannabis should be decriminalised because the law was doing little to stem drug use. Police seizures of cannabis have recently been rising. Officers have been specifically targeting those manufacturing cannabis. On May 16, police made their biggest seizure of cannabis plants since at least 1990 during raids on two factory units that were turned into indoor marijuana farms.
