    The Barbados government need to legalize marijuana and make good money and develop the country.
    That’s a no-brainer..

    What non sensical statements, lock them up throw away the key and injudicious garbage. I totally understand the fact why the Marine Unit and CID are doing their job and protecting our shores. I understand that they are guided by legislation but all these big PHD’s, Masters and Doctorates cant apply a little common sense and ascertain the link between the cost price of cannabis and a surge in violence.

    Cannabis rivaling the price of cocaine, now that is a major problem in relation to supply and demand. We are governed by antiquated politicians who believe bowing down in front of massa in Church, following white supremacist ideals covertly, having paganistic view points, believing that any thing natural and black is derogatory and willing to die to preserve neo colonialism traditions in Bim.

    An intelligent decision needs to be had in relation to the substance and to desist from ruining the lives of first offenders. You people act like you born big. We have a very asinine judiciary process that does not encompass Triage, no cautions, no youth conditional cautions, no programs for first time offenders and yet you pretend to be cosmopolitan. That conviction closes alot of dorrs in a country that unless you got big friends or a rich uncle you aint getting out.

    Every day we see plants being found by Operation Eradication, we see recently a man going to jail for a week for spliff, we see people being fined and sent to rehab for marijuana etc.

    NOW BE HONEST WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HEARD COCAINE WAS HELD IN BIM. Not the mules that try a thing. Google it and see they do make seizures but not like cannabis and a word to the wise. Barbados is not known for exquisite cannabis but for fantastic cocaine. That don’t travel on no
    day boat.

    Living in a modern civilized society where laws are passed it is the citizens’ responsibility to adhere to the Due process which is a democratic free countries wright to its countrymen. You are innocent until proven guilty. Locking up and throwing away the key legal systems are left in few undeveloped countries and are controlled by dictators and junta law. We the people of Barbados deserve to keep ” due process ” as our legal device.
