    Leo maybe the cruiseships should start letting passengers know the laws don’t change in the C’bean when it comes to illegal drugs

    Do they not know that once docked any ship can be checked by local officials and crew are also trained to report evidence or even smell of drugs.
    It could have been a training exercise or random check and cocaine is for sure not a drug allowed anywhere.
    That is not just for me amount for sure….

    There goes the argument by all the people that constantly rant that if someone was from one of the big nations and bring drugs that they would be set free.
