A Dunedin man accused of smuggling drugs into New Zealand has been remanded in the Dunedin District Court this morning.

The 21-year-old, whose name is suppressed, entered no plea. He faces charges of importing controlled drugs LSD and MDMA to New Zealand and of possession of a psychoactive substance with intent to supply.

The man is also facing charges of possession of the controlled drug, Ritalin, for supply, and possession of cannabis for supply, and selling cannabis.

The alleged offending took place between January and August this year.

The man's lawyer, Garth Cameron, requested the remand for his client because the charges were serious. His client was in custody by consent, he said.

Judge Dominic Flatley remanded the man until September 9.
