    “We can only hope the police would exercise restraint in pursuing such a person.”

    Perhaps it’s not ‘restraint’ but rather ‘sensibility’ that the police should exercise in the case of a person innocently discovering drugs on the ground and was in the process of taking them to police. Although this is still intentional possession of a drug of dependence, there should be consideration on the circumstances surrounding the intent of possession.
