Weed ‘farmer’ slapped with $5,000 fine

Magistrate Douglas Frederick imposed a $5,000 fine on a St Michael man whom he said had graduated into a cannabis “farmer”.

Shane O’Neal Mayers of Odessa McClean Drive was today found guilty of the July 6, 2013 offences of possession, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and cultivation of $10,000 worth of cannabis.

“You were given chances in the past, but you are not learning. You started with a little, now you have graduated to growing; looks like you are a farmer,” Frederick told Mayers as he asked him whether he wanted to spend more time in prison.

“Everybody does make mistakes,” the man replied. “Twenty eight days were enough, Sir. I don’t want any more.”

Mayers has six months to pay the fine or he will spend six months in jail.

    I honestly think it is time to legalise marijuana,so that those who want to use it and grow it can,marijuana isn’t just for smoking,they are a lot of products, that can be made from the marijuana plant.
    There is also a lot of money to hr made from harvesting legal marijuana as well.
