  1. How can a plant be illegal? ? someone please explain that to me. its like arresting someone for tomatoes or spinach. this western world is corrupt. we only follow the big USA. Christianity is a joke. what does the church say about marijuana? should all the plants worldwide be eradicated? and we talk about conserving nature, we basically killing off a species of plant. they welcome the fact of homosexuals incubating AIDS in this country but imprison ppl for a plant. and we wonder why Islamic state is doing what they are doing in the middle east. i pray the Islamic state reaches here quickly. so all these western beliefs would be erased.

  2. There was an article written in a popular newspaper here titled "we the Sheeple" Really interesting read actually. Fitting though! i can't say that i blame the police for doing their jobs, however misguided. The issues wrong with this country falls with its leaders and their lack of leadership.
    We can't help but be followers it seems. I would love to see some real leadership come out of the Caribbean basin. Also, productive dialogue from the people too. There just seems to be alot of 'talk' over nothing.
    Soon enough, weed will be legalized and the state will tax the heck out of it. It's a sound business model that states here in the US have adopted and that will trickle down to the Islands. The problem with that statement goes back to the Title "We the Sheeple" When will be be the leaders of our own future? And this does not just apply to weed...what about the socio-economic problems facing the country. When will we demand more from our called leaders?
