TWO women are due in court today on cannabis possession charges after one of them repeatedly set off a metal detector at an airport in New Zealand, allegedly leading to the discovery of foil-wrapped cannabis in her bra.
The woman, 52, had 50g of the drug in 28 individually wrapped packages in her underwear, police told The Southland Times.
A 44-year-old female friend travelling with her was then spoken to by police at Queenstown Airport - and it was discovered she also had about 40g of the illicit drug concealed about her body.
