Holding of drugs

One of my seniors was found possessing 10 grams of marijuana at his home after police raided him. I would like to know what is the amount that one can hold and what comes under intent to distribute it. What are the laws applicable in this case and how a person can defend themselves?

Even possessing prohibited drugs (weed or marijuana) in India is an offense under the NDPS Act. The purpose of possession of drugs is not relevant and the punishment depends upon the quantity of drugs in possession. If a person is caught with drugs or found to be a drug addict, he/she would not be subject to prosecution if he/she voluntarily chooses to undergo de-addiction treatment.
