In the case of Levy, who passed out 13 packets containing a quarter pound of marijuana, the fine is $3,000 forthwith; while Ellis will have to pay $4,000 forthwith for the half pound of cannabis he swallowed in 29 packets.

The Jamaicans, who came into Barbados last Wednesday, will be jailed for a year if they don’t pay up.

    Eat, drink, smoke the Mari in Jamaica leave it there. The two Demons think their are above the law. Rather than waste time getting the items out of their stomach put them on the next flight to Jamaica to continue playing Russian Roulette with their life.
