UPDATE: Bus driver caught with cannabis in vehicle

A bus driver from the south of the island is before the court after almost 200 pounds of cannabis was discovered in his vehicle.

According to a police press release, officers attached to the Drug Unit of the Southern Division while on mobile patrol at Savannes Bay, Vieux Fort intercepted an omnibus, registration number M529, driven by Celcut Marvey Edwards of Morne Cayenne, Vieux Fort.

Police said a search on the vehicle yielded five bags containing about 192 pounds of dried green plant material suspected to be cannabis.

Edwards was subsequently arrested and charged for possession of a controlled drug and possession with the intent to supply a controlled drug.

He appeared before the Second District Court in Vieux Fort on Friday, September 20, 2013.

  1. When the US makes it a good thing then we will accept it. As soon as they have sold the alloted quota of alcohol & tobacco to us. Then they will put themselves at a stage to sell marijana to us and call it medicinal. They are already at an advanced stage with many states reviewing their legislation. While st lucians are here in a non-existent economy shooting down their brethren. For if a man chooses to drink his rum let him drink his rum if he doesn't endanger somebody else's life. Then if a man chose to smoke his weed let him smoke his weed as long as it does'nt affect anybody and in the meantime still make money off of it. There is a perception of the caribbean that we are countries of relaxation where people have dreadlocks and down to earth. Why don't we practice that kind of tourism? Why do we have to trick ourselves?

  2. Lucian politicians should regulate it and tax it. Put cops on patrol in designated areas where it can be sold. Sell license to allow the best shops to operate. Those who keep the area nice can continue, those outside are prosecuted.

  4. Stop making "what is suspected to be cannabis"or so u guys say look like such a big thing here in St. Lucia when we all no that if "what is suspected to be cannabis" is legalized here in can bring some much need financial growth to this country. Why don't our police officers pay much mor attention to all the innocent people dying in this country cause i am more afraid of a gun than i am of "what is suspected to be cannabis".

    • Oh so true. I said that from the start. Every other Lucian is doing the same. He didn't rape, kill or steal. Nothing to be a shame off.

  6. Now that banana is on life support, I think the OECS should be allowed to export that "dried green plant material suspected to be cannabis." Many States in Yankie-Ville have legalize ganja, so we should be able to supply them. Supply and demand!
