Rapper C Jamm To Go To Trial For Drug Use, Says He Did It For Musical Inspiration
Rapper C Jamm, who was recently booked for marijuana use alongside rapper VASCO, will be going to trial. June 12, it was revealed that the rapper was indicted and will be held under detention for the duration of the trial.
C Jamm allegedly, from the period of February 2017 to April 2018, purchased a total of 112 grams of marijuana from a seller at the price of 16,050,000 won (approximately $14,900) across 10 separate instances.
Moreover, he is also facing charges for use of marijuana three times alongside rapper VASCO and four other aspiring celebrities during the period of May 2015 through April 2018, and in October 2017, of using 0.5 grams of cocaine.
In a statement to police, C Jamm said, “I did it because I thought it was helpful when creating music.”
Initially, the charges were for 13 instances of using marijuana as well as one instance of using ecstasy. However, the ecstasy and 10 instances of marijuana use were unable to be confirmed in a hair follicle test, so that portion of the charges were dropped.
A source from the prosecution said, “C Jamm and others testified that when they were purchasing marijuana, they also received and used a small amount of ecstasy for free, but whether because it wasn’t actually ecstasy, it did not show up in the test results.”
