Jamel Kerry Evelyn, 29, was also charged after lawmen say they discovered 20 seedlings under cultivation on his property, as well as three more pounds of loose quantity of cannabis.

The third person charged with possession, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and cultivation of cannabis is Charles Ernest Padmore, 54. Police said they found 10 plants growing in his enclosed yard.

    With the amount of farmers going up Dodds they should reboot the Agriculture program and help them to hone their skills.

      Yes Elke, OxyContin: Pain Relief vs. Abuse, Md are now the new drug dealers. Mind you the doc. are prescribing this drug to seniors, and living off of them for life. My 80 year old neighbor, who even disowned her only son because of one joint is mow a certified OxyContin junkie. Head bopping, eyes bulging. I tell you if she was able, she will be out there robbing people just to get this evil drug fix on. It’s worst than crack, because you won’t expect MDs to be prescribing it.

      Beware peoples, Doctors are now legal drug dealers

      OXYCONTIN THE “HILLBILLY HEROIN”

      Because it reacts on the nervous system like heroin or opium, some abusers are using one brand of oxycodone painkiller, OxyContin, as a substitute for, or supplement to, street opiates like heroin.

      Armed robberies of pharmacies have occurred where the robber demanded only OxyContin, not cash. In some areas, particularly the Eastern United States, OxyContin has been the drug of greatest concern to law enforcement authorities.

      OxyContin, widely known as “hillbilly heroin” because of its abuse in Appalachian communities, has emerged as a major crime problem in the US. In one county, it was estimated that addiction to this drug was behind 80% of the crime.

      “I didn’t think I had a ‘drug’ problem—I was buying the tablets at the chemist [drugstore]. It didn’t affect my work. I would feel a bit tired in the mornings, but nothing more. The fact that I had a problem came to a head when I took an overdose of about forty tablets and found myself in the hospital. I spent twelve weeks in the clinic conquering my addiction.” —Alex

      “Pretty much as long as I can remember I’ve had highs and lows. I would get easily upset by the littlest things, I would have anger outbursts, or hate someone for no reason at all. For a long while I had thought I was bipolar. I started using drugs last October to help me with my unwanted feelings. But believe it or not, it just made stuff worse! I had to now deal with my addiction and my emotional problems.” —Thomas

    While the whole world (almost) gets ready to let go this outdated law and start to realise that Weed is really not that Kinda Drug that people here want to believe it is, Barbados is gonna stick to their guns and people will just not come here anymore period. Most tourist will flock to other shores in the Caribbean that I have no doubt about will follow the Jamaican example.

    @Jacinta: Hi lady, Thanks for all the good advice; scientific data etc; I don’t know what you use (I use Lipton’s yellow-label stuff), but with THREE posts on this ONE topic, either you, or your computer, needs some “professional attention” also.
