Jamaican chef on drug charges

A Jamaican chef who came to Barbados after swallowing more than 30 packets containing a pound of cannabis will appear in court tomorrow.

Martell Antonio Stewart will face charges of possession, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation.

The 41-year-old arrived in Barbados last Thursday and was interviewed by police after clearing Immigration.

Stewart was then referred to a medical facility where he eventually passed out 32 drug-filled packets.

    When are they going to learn? Feel free to smoke, cook and eat the national dish in Jamaica that is part of their culture. For the love of God do not risk your life putting the Mari in the stomach just for paper.

    So wait… that ganja I smoked while on vacation in Barbados came out of some Jamaican’s azz? LOL.. I kid. I kid. But seriously, why is ganja being smuggled into BGI? Can’t the stuff be grown locally? He took a big chance for a small reward.
