      Indeed. Marijuana has been legalised in most sensible countries. This cash crop can be revenue for government. Much needed cash.

        I’ve been proclaiming that for EONS, this plant has developed into a BILLION dollar INDUSTRY.

        Yet our so called Politicians have they heads buried in Tourism and the sand.

        Can you imagine the economical effect this cash crop could have on St Lucia and the OECS only if these so called politicians pull their fingers out!

    It’s only ganja weed so not a significant drug bust. I would be more significant if the police could confiscate all the illegal guns and ammo in one big sweep.

    I’ve never seen any stats of people lives destroyed by weed yet more people are destroyed by alcohol and it’s not illegal. Why we don’t develop commercial hemp and create long term industry for the country, if you research the product there are hundreds of patterns for it. Check it out. Remember 40%unemployment

      Did you really think before you made such a senseless comment.

      So what about the states which legalised it and turned round to a BILLION dollar INDUSTRY.

      Are you saying a BILLION dollar INDUSTRY is not VALUABLE!

      DUPPY!

    When I read in the Media that the Police through an investigative operation and not by chance.

    Have raided a yacht moored at Rodney Bay marina and confiscated and arrested an individual for the possession and intent to supply 10 KILOS of Cocaine.

    Then and only then you can add a headline like “Police make ‘significant’ drug bust”

    Driving under the influence of any drug substance Alcohol is a crime and can ruin lives.Sometimes I wonder why there are so many road traffic sccidents.
    When feeling high and drugged out of your skull and driving or operating machinery you put innocent people’s lives in danger that’ that’s criminal. For gods sake hAve a conscience do something worth while with your lives.
