The drugs had an estimated street value of over half a million dollars, according to law enforcement officials.

Both foreign nationals  were arrested and charged following the first of two marine police operations in the South of Saint  Lucia on Friday July 21st, during which the Dominican national was shot.

That operation resulted in the seizure of 1,012 pounds of cannabis, according to reports.

The men were remanded in custody and are scheduled to make another court appearance on September 9, 2017.

      What kind of idiot are you? “White masters”, “black people don’t know how to make money”?! If you are white you are a racist pig and worse if you are black you are suffering from inferiority complex disorder. You can make your points without bashing anymore. Because I am in favour of decriminalizing marijuana but insulting is not the way you go about doing it.

    Legalizing marijuana will not stop anything but will created more war. Please really look at this and see. Look at tho amount of people dying over drug related cases when the shit is illegal, just think how they will react if it were to be legalized. With everyone having the right to plant just sit and think about it for a while.
