Radio 1 DJ Jailed for Porn and Pot in Dubai

(Gigwise) Drum n' bass DJ Grooverider could face up to four years behind bars after he was caught at a Dubai airport with an alleged stash of cannabis and pornography in his luggage.

The DJ, who has had a long-standing Radio 1 show alongside music partner Fabio, was meant to be performing in the UAE city on November 23. However, he was pulled over by customs at the Gulf Emirates Airport and detained after they allegedly discovered the said items.

Under very strict United Arab Emirates laws, pornography and cannabis are forbidden and come with tough sentences. For example, the death sentence can be passed on drug traffickers. - more on this story
