why are people still being charged for ganja to me.that not making sense. that alone can cause slp to loose next election. there are big tuna in places like cap estate why go after little cawang in Belaire
@meme and who knows some times its a small quantity of drugs. i wish they would go behind those that have the guns in those areas. and like you say about the big tuna i sure nothing has come out for the container that was found with drugs some years ago.
Facts to know !
Colombia is on the move to legalise “Cocaïne”.
Wow, cannabis? What a waste of resources. There are guns and actual drugs on island and you all are pressed to make operations and arrests for cannabis? As a US citizen who spends a significant amount of time in St Lucia I think that this is a joke! Keep up with the changing times and stop criminalizing your citizens for a natural grown herb. This is embarrassing.
This arrest was a deliberate thing.
