Cannabis with an estimated street value of more than £1,000 was seized from a car stopped in Tonbridge.
Five mobile phones and other drug paraphernalia was also found in a silver Volkswagen Golf, including a set of digital scales and a vacuum-packing device, during the stop in Quary Hill yesterday.
A 38-year-old man, of no fixed address, was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a class B drug.
He was later released from custody pending further enquiries.
Sergeant Ashley Boxall of the Tonbridge Community Safety Unit said: "Kent Police takes a zero tolerance approach to anyone suspected of supplying drugs and is committed to keeping harmful substances off our streets.
"Anyone who suspects drug-dealing in their local area is encouraged to report it by visiting www.kent.police.uk/report or by calling 101. You can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers in Kent anonymously on 0800 555111."
