Amiruddin Nadarajan Abdullah, also known as Dr. Ganja or Dr. G for short, is awaiting a possible death sentence for selling chocolate bars and brownies made with hemp seed oil in Malaysia. Now, Malaysian Princess Tengku Chanela Jamidah and the Last Prisoner Project are working together to help appeal his case.
After experiencing the benefits of medicinal cannabis and hemp for his cancer recovery, Dr. G began to invite people suffering from cancer and other ailments to his village home in the district of Klang. He is not a formal doctor but was gifted the name “Dr. G” after his work sharing hemp oil medicine. Dr. G was arrested in 2017 and charged with 36 offenses under Malaysia’s Dangerous Drugs Act.
