Jamaican national denied entry into Barbados expels 45 pellets of ganja

Source: Jamaica Gleaner:  A Jamaican man is now in custody after he reportedly expelled 45 pellets of ganja one day after he was refused entry into Barbados.

The Jamaica Constabulary Force’s Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) says his identity is being withheld pending further investigations.

CCU reports that the man was searched by narcotics detectives before he boarded a flight destined for Barbados and no contraband was found.

However, the police say his actions aroused the suspicion of security personnel the following day after he was refused landing in Barbados and returned to Jamaica.

CCU says the police was alerted and the man questioned before he was taken to hospital where he reportedly expelled the 45 pellets of ganja.

    How many times we have to deal with this ? Jamaica can’t keep their own from messing up Barbados country with drugs and bad behaviour ? Myrie got away with $$$$$$ and the rest think that we are ready to pay out more .Put the offender face up at the airport keep them out or sue Jamaican authorities for negligence CCJ pay back we.

    Something “fishy” here. Just have to take this with a “pinch of salt”.
    It will be nice to know if other Caribbean Countries are having this same problem of persons from JA moving drugs like luggage/cargo.

      That’s not how it works. Legalisation does not mean people get to do as they please. There is much more to legalisation than you know.

      When taken for medical reasons when if you do get high that would mean your prescription grade is wrong for you. Recreational is altogether different. If legalised for recreational only a very small amount can be purchased. Caught with anything over, you will be charged with possession for trafficking. Medical reasons a person may be allowed up to a lb per month. I have prescribed marijuana and those who think you get high can’t be any further from the truth. People who take it for medical reasons are not interested in the high.

      Obama did not legalize marijuana the states did that. If you come to a country where u know it is illegal and get caught then you must pay the price. It is about following the laws.

      PAM. IF marijuana legalized, it will have less crime and the government will save a lot of money on taxes.Do you know how much money it takes to keep a prisoner in jail for one 8.well check that out and get back to me.Holland marijuana is legalized and it has less crime than a lot of countries.

    It’s time for Body Scans… in the USA it’s at the Airports it’s time they put them in place in the Caribbean Airports.

    This Barbados Today report is very clear. The Jamaican national was searched before he departed Jamaica There must have been a tip off presumably in Jamaica as local Barbadian immigration refused him entry again presumably because he has either a drug smuggling or some sort of criminal record. On his return back to Jamaica, he was acting suspiciously and was subsequently remanded and sent to a medical facility in Jamaica, where he passes out 45 pellets of the Marijuana. a trafficable amount. What’s the deal?

    You want to stop a few Jamaicans from coming to Barbados because of approximately the 5 ( if that many) caught per year trying to smuggle marijuana into Barbados? Does that really make any sense Day Fay Marine?

    All you people who want to legalize ganja , I hope you all help pay the prize when men and women, would be walking around not knowing what day it is , or where there are…..mentally messed up…

    @Angus Benn!!!Where the hell do you get your Information?? Obama had NOTHING at all to do with the STATE legalizing Marijuana, and it is STILL a FEDERAL Crime in the USA, the Feds just don’t want a War with State Authorities.

    Marijuana was NOT Legal all other the States, wher did you get that sillyness from, Marijuana came to Prominence during the Hippie era of the 70’s and it was ILLEGAL then also, but they were left alone as long as they smoked it at their Concerts and NOT around Town (Remember Woodstock, or are you too young???)

    Your Post about Holland, and How much it takes to keep a person in Prison is well Taken, but i experienced the Holland, and there are still rules that MUST be Followed, it’s NOT a free for all.

    I guess you NEVER Read about the Great FLOOD, Noah and the ARK , The Rainbow,??????

    @jrsmith!!!!! That is already Happening, at least where i am.

    @ Himmel Klar!!!! They have NOT yet installed the extremely neccessary CCTV Cameras promised during the First Term, and you think that there will be Body Scanners any time soon ????Dream on.

    @Maria Leclair Dasilva!!! Just waiting to hear what you will be saying after the next Four Years, after this Buffoon get through with that Country, and perhaps you will get the Statistics of Obama’s Term, and STOP making silly Statements about him whilst Knowing NOTHING about his TENURE IN OFFICE, I will piblish his acheivements for IDIOTS like you to see.
