A 37-year-old resident of Ramat Gan was arrested on Sunday by police after it was discovered the man had used his four-room apartment to grow marijuana plants illegally.

180 plants were confiscated and on one of the walls of the apartment was scrawled the saying “with God’s help we shall do and be successful,” a religious motto that, while not found in the bible, is widely used by Jews who feel close to their faith.

The police warned the public against using and manufacturing illegal drugs and stated that those who do harm the physical well being of the public to make “a quick buck” would be severely punished.
