According to the Narcotics Unit at the Gyeonggi Nambu Provincial Police Agency, a total of two people were arrested for marijuana use and six others were booked without detention on Tuesday.

Each of the eight people charged work in the music industry. Some are producers, while others are rappers in training.

C Jamm, whose case was sent to the prosecutors’ office last week, is currently being investigated at the Suwon Detention Center. A source from the center said, “We are currently [hoping] to find the suppliers.” Meanwhile, Bill Stax has admitted to marijuana use and was booked without detention.

C Jamm and Bill Stax are both represented by the same label, Linchpin Music, and have appeared on separate seasons of cable channel Mnet’s popular rap competition program “Show Me the Money.”
