Famous rapper Kilogram was caught by police for possessing cannabis and smoking.
Today (3rd), Seoul's Yeongdeungpo Police Department said it was investigating a US rapper Kilogram (real name Lee Jun-hee, 29) for violating the Narcotics Control Act (hemp).
Mr. Lee was arrested on the 1st at about 4:10 pm at his home in Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul, and was arrested by the police who had been dispatched after receiving a report of "smelling a burning smell."
It is said that the house was smoky and the smell of burning mugwort was strong when the police were dispatched.
Police accused him of smoking hemp, but Lee initially denied the charges, saying, "I don't do hemp," and "it's just the smell of e-cigarettes."
However, the police found dry-leaf hemp in the kitchen.
They also found inhalers made of plastic used to smoke powdered hemp and hemp in the ventilator box and workroom drawers.
In the end, Mr. Lee was reported to have admitted that he bought hemp for 400,000 won from an unknown foreigner in Itaewon, Seoul in December of last year, and that he smoked some of them.
Police are investigating whether anyone has smoked hemp with Mr. Lee.
Lee, who made her name public by appearing on a cable broadcasting contest in 2016, has released several albums and has been broadcasting.
