Daisuke Ikeda arrested on May 9 for possession of weed. Comments seem to be bashing the guy and talking about how this "ruins the image of skating"

Didn't know you could be arrested for suspicion of possessing weed over there. Might be an error in translation, kinda funny they called him former skateboarder in the article

Damn.

The impression I got from people in Japan was weed is a highly guarded secret amongst those who have access to it.

Talking about it in public is a no go.

English translation of the linked article:

Quote
A former skateboarder who has been designated as a strengthening athlete for the Tokyo Olympics has been arrested on suspicion of possessing cannabis.

[Image] Former skateboarder Ikeda (22) said he had experience participating in domestic and international competitions

According to investigative sources, Daisuke Ikeda, 22, is suspected of possessing cannabis at his home in Kawasaki, Kanagawa, in November 2022.

Ikeda was arrested on May 9, and the Metropolitan Police Department is investigating how he obtained cannabis.

Ikeda is a former skateboarder who has participated in domestic and international competitions, and in 2019 was selected as a strengthening athlete for the Tokyo Olympics.

Aren’t the Japanese pretty draconian about drugs?
When nothing in society deserves respect, we should fashion for ourselves in solitude new silent loyalties.

Yup, he got the sentenced suspended, pretty sure he's going in next year. He has one of the best styles hands down. Hope Capita doesn't drop him

if you know anything about Japanese police, you’ll know that they will absolutely detain him and push him to the point of admitting guilt; once you get detained you basically have no rights…

Impish sausage is definitely gonna blow up as a euphemism this year

Unfortunately, Japan has a zero tolerance policy towards drug, even weed. He's going to be locked up for a few years at least.

Has he been in custody since the arrest in November '22? There's an LA tour video with footy from him that claims to be from 2023 and was released on YouTube like a month ago. Has he really been in the US in 2023, or is this old footy? Does bail exist in Japan? The wiki article linked below describes several celebrities receiving suspended sentences for cannabis possession. Hopefully Daisuke's punishment won't be more severe.

It said he was under investigation for possession of marijuana in November 2022, but was arrested in May ‘23

I remember when I lived in Germany I thought it was so fucked how illegal weed was even over there. Every day going onto the train I saw police searching people. That would just never happen here, you have way too many rights and shit. But no joke every day they were catching people. They never once searched me cause I didn't know how to get weed there for most of the time i lived there. the one day i did have some i was so paranoid.

there was a kid i eventually met who skated who could get weed. he got caught once and he had to go to the police station and do drug test at 16 years old. he was still smoking, i was like "arent you worried about failing the test?" lol. hes like "ahh i just stop like a day or two before and im usually good"

There is no bail system in Japan. You are held for 3 days at a time and every third day there is a chance you can be released depending on the severity of the crime and your behavior. You can be held up to 27 days before you are charged with your crime, and usually if you are held that long you will def be charged and convicted of whatever the charge is. They have like a 99% conviction rate.

this sounds like bavaria/broader south germany. they only do this shit there in my experience. or bored cops in rural areas. most people don't give a shit overall, police rarely does anything about it in cities. people grow weed on their balconies and at least in the cities, everyone seems to smoke. and it's going to be legal next year hopefully. maybe only half-legal, but growing and smoking will be allowed for sure.

japans drug laws are fucked, but i've heard that the youth is more lenient towards it, so maybe the change in attitude can bring a change in legislature with time. also, i have a feeling that weed references in japanese videogames have increased. of course, no one in their right mind would ever confess to smoking or having weed. i saw some funny vid a while back and some dude asked japanese people and often their reaction was along the lines of "whoah, weed is interesting haha, i would never do it haha." anyways...

free daisuke, shit sucks. burning some green rn as a tribute.

If you ever become an alcoholic and experience that bullshit, the idea of weed being illegal becomes even more baffling. And it was already baffling, but it takes on a whole new dimension.

Imagine going to prison for having herbal tea or something.

Yeah, unfortunately had a friend get locked up over there for something dumb - he essentially went “missing” for 3-4 days(couldn’t get ahold of him and no one knew where he was and he couldn’t make any calls besides to get a lawyer) while he was detained. another friend finally saw an arrest log or news article and that’s how we found out. Really crazy/interesting stories I got to hear from him about jail in Japan and the trial process.. haha

sounded terrifying
