    When your visual and led blindly by the media you have the general assumption that crime does not pay. What a lie? What’s a weed mule in comparison to what occurs in Barbados? 14 pounds is over 6 kilos for an elder to travel with. We see a lot of these offences as they are cannon feed for the media to the salivating public to feed xenophobic appetites and attitudes.

    Barbados is not known for hard weed but for fantastic cocaine you do the math. Somehow a very small amount of cocaine is uncovered at the ports of entry. Had a big one the other day and he just forgot to pay his way. Silly me, I forgot that don’t travel in suitcases or on go fast boats but travels prestige in yachts and through diplomatic lounges.

    Daddy, you made a very crucial mistake and will do some time in your twilight years. I say this broadly as a people we are quite judgmental and punitive. I hope crime does not knock at your door in the form of a relative, a son, a daughter, your husband or wife as you always bay for blood, hopefully you keep up the trend.

    May be a repeat offender, may be the first time, aint know if the offence was committed voluntary or under a state of duress who knows. I wonder what was happening in your personal life to make you even want to try that and usually in 95% of importation greed is the common equation and seeking financial opportunities.

    Unless you can pay those fines you have a quite a few birthdays and xmas parties to attend behind bars. It is tragic when a youth loses his freedom, with elders it is distressing to live so long then to get incarcerated when you should be watching your grandchildren and being a doting grandfather.
