    Guns follow drugs! Both are illegal. Police are doing an excellent job fighting crime! Cow itch and nettles are plants too. Does that make them harmless?

    The South Coast full of sewage and this is the best thing they can find to do with the resources and manpower

    Look, go and investigate CLICO and lockup 7 people

    Then go and deal with the white collar crime and corruption that is not the new-new-new-normal in Barbados and what we pride ourselves for when doing business

    Use the plants to make cannabis oil for the people who riddle with cancers, illnesses, diseases

    Its time for the people of Barbados to wakeup

    Time for a new legal cash crop. We will continue on this path while the rest of the world changes course. All we will do is be left behind as usual. Grow under license and export.

    A lot of tourist come to BARBADOS to smoke marijuana. I think that the Blp should legalized marijuana if they are smart. Every thing America does we want to do and talk About it. But they refused to followed America by legalizing marijuana.

    I think that these out dated politicians need to wake up. They have lost their way. Maybe if Thompson was alive he would of legalized marijuana. Not these 18 century politicians that they have running this country. The British system still in their heads.

    John doesn’t know it’s also illegal to be stuck in the 80s.

    You need to lose that insular DLP backing mentality.

    Weed should be legal.

  22. Willz Power
    Willz Power December 10, 2017 at 4:00 pm

    Weed should be legal. This archaic thinking by the DLP is silly. Stop arresting men for a plant when alcohol os legal and does more damage.

  30. Joy December 10, 2017 at 8:40 pm

    Jamar Springer you can’t export weed. It’s call trafficking which is illegal. If you know so much about laws in the USA you should know that.
