Man convicted of growing Marijuana at king’s estate

A man from Pea has been convicted of growing and possession of marijuana.

Pālavi Lavaka pleaded guilty to cultivating cannabis and possessing the drug when he appeared in the Nukuʻalofa Lower Court last week.

The judge said Lavaka owned up right away to growing the marijuana, an operation police have proved he did at the king’s estate of Fualu.

Magistrate Mafi postponed the sentencing until this week so the prosecutors could provide him with the convict’s past criminal history.
