Woman held with ganja concealed in water heater

Members of the Drug Squad have arrested and charged a 28-year-old Christ Church woman in connection with four drug related offences.

Keisha Natasha Grandison, 28, of Brathwaite’s Gap, Dayrells Road, Christ Church was arrested and charged with possession of cannabis, trafficking of cannabis, possession with intent to supply cannabis and importation of cannabis.

The police say Grandison made arrangements with another person in the U.S. to have items sent to her. These items included a water heater, which had cannabis concealed in it. On Wednesday, June 7 she presented the necessary documents and collected her cargo. As a result of information received, she was subsequently seen and stopped by police. A subsequent search of the water heater revealed nine wrapped packages, all containing cannabis.

The cannabis weighed 17.5 kg and with an estimated street value of $140,000.

Grandison appeared before Magistrate Cuffy-Sargeant in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today was granted bail in the sum of $10,000 with two sureties to reappear in Court on June 12.

    Ganja was created by Jehovah God Almighty for man’s recreation and the demons of this world controlling it.

    I am somewhat disheartened at the sentiment expressed here. Having lived regionally and lost friends to the scourge of drug use, I wonder if folks fully understand the consequences of legalizing ‘ganja’.
    Marijuana affects people differently. After using it, some people will sitback and talk like they are gurus, then fall asleep. Others smoke and become animated, beligerent and abusive. While some adults may feel they have a handle on their use of this and other substances, the children of this country are vulnerable and need to be safeguarded.
    It can’t always be about the money derived from sales or personal gratification from its use.We must put our children’s wellbeing first, or the future of our country will be lost!

      Biscuits all you want now is some corn beef
      Stop playing God
      God created Marijuana
      He never said abuse it but use everything in moderation

      Marijuana has Medicinal purposes
      herbs have been identified and used from prehistoric times. Plants make many chemical compounds for biological functions, including defence against insects, fungi and herbivorous mammals.

      What are the Medicinal purposes of Alcohol
      Here’s how alcohol can affect your body:

      Brain:
      Alcohol interferes with the brain’s communication pathways, and can affect the way the brain looks and works. These disruptions can change mood and behavior, and make it harder to think clearly and move with coordination.

      Heart:
      Drinking a lot over a long time or too much on a single occasion can damage the heart, causing problems including:

      Cardiomyopathy – Stretching and drooping of heart muscle
      Arrhythmias – Irregular heart beat
      Stroke
      High blood pressure Liver:
      Heavy drinking takes a toll on the liver, and can lead to a variety of problems and liver inflammations including:

      Steatosis, or fatty liver
      Alcoholic hepatitis
      Fibrosis
      Cirrhosis
      Pancreas:
      Alcohol causes the pancreas to produce toxic substances that can eventually lead to pancreatitis, a dangerous inflammation and swelling of the blood vessels in the pancreas that prevents proper digestion.

      Cancer:
      Drinking too much alcohol can increase your risk of developing certain cancers, including cancers of the:

      Mouth
      Esophagus
      Throat
      Liver
      Breast
      Immune System:
      Drinking too much can weaken your immune system, making your body a much easier target for disease. Chronic drinkers are more liable to contract diseases like pneumonia and tuberculosis than people who do not drink too much. Drinking a lot on a single occasion slows your body’s ability to ward off infections – even up to 24 hours after getting drunk.

      Alcohol is legal

        The only person constantly referring to God …is you.
        The medicinal merits of marijuana are documented for those who wish to peruse. However, my previous comment is based on my concern for the children whose deviant behaviour has been associated with early access to marijuana.
        Your points on alcohol are indeed valid, but that is not the meat of the matter here.

    @ Biscuits

    Do you travel?

    If so to which countries? Have you travelled to any countries where marijuana is legal? Looked in-depth at the law and legislation to support such a move and the early intervention educational strategies? Really interested in having an intellectual mature conversation.

    Holler back Biscuit lets dig a bit deeper.

      As of 2017, Australia, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Czech Republic, Germany, India, Jamaica, Mexico, the Netherlands, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Uruguay, and some U.S. jurisdictions have the least restrictive cannabis laws

      Amsterdam Drugs Policy

      It is common knowledge throughout the world that in Amsterdam you may enter a coffee shop and buy soft drugs (weed, magic truffles, salvia and peyote cactus). What is more – you will be handed a menu with drugs of the day, and there might be even a special on the menu. It is all accessible – for four joints you will pay the same price as for twenty cigarettes

    Portugal in 2001 became the first European country to officially abolish all criminal penalties for personal possession of drugs, including marijuana, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine.

  24. Bresford Leon Phillips June 11, 2017 at 6:53 pm

    Fourteen years after decriminalization, Portugal has not been run into the ground by a nation of drug addicts. In fact, by many measures, it’s doing far better than it was before.

    IRELAND is moving closer to decriminalising drugs including heroin, cocaine and cannabis as part of a cultural shift, the Irish Government told a policy forum in London.
    Minister for Ireland’s National Drugs Strategy, Aodhán Ó Ríordáin, believes the move will help to combat the country’s drug-related crime problem.

    They can find ganja that poses no immediate treat or kill anyone but yet still they can’t find the automatic and semi -automatic weapons that’s partly responsible for loss of life nearly everyday. . . . . . . . because they don’t want to find them.

    That’s life for ya on a Banana Republic ! !
