  2. It's amazing at some of the comments written here. For some reason almost all of them are accusing the police officers of pocketing some of the drugs. People please be responsible with what you are saying and putting out there. If you have evidence that the police officers involved are corrupt please take action and report it to the necessary authorities so that action could be taken agaist them and stop this nonsense. This article is being read world wide and some foreigners will actually believe this nonsense that you are putting out there. Then we wonder why things are so bad in this country, if i were potential investor or visitor i would think twice about visiting or investing in a country where the population is always accusing the police force of corruption. You are doing more harm than good in this case so again if you have a legitimate concern please contact and report the matter to the relevant authorities and stop destroying our country loose tongues.

  3. lmao...some police pocket fat tonight. 2 bags? Really? 2 grams, 2 kg, 2 Tonnes? How much Cannabis you collected, Mr. Police? Unless the Police go easy on the weed, this economy will continue to be under pressure. Kenny and all the economist know that.

  4. Like seriously ? That should not even be a news item. This is 2014. You guys need to fight real crimes. The entire caricom region need to make the first step made by Jamaica and legalize the herb. Allow each person to have about 2oz in their possession and at least 20 trees in their yard. Then a lot of this trade will stop. Stop hacking at tge leaves and deal with the roots. Marijuana never killed anyone or robbed anyone. They are simple plants created by the same GOD you claim to serve. Seriously why can I make use of any other tree but not that one ? How come I am not locked up if I have Cocoa trees and they are used in the production of Cocaine ? How come Tobacco legal and Sergeon General Warning say it is bad for you ? Stop try to play tricks on the minds of the underpriviledged and the masses. They will rise up against you. They will sign the petitions necessary to force you in the house of parliament to pass the nwcessary bills into law if you would want to maintain power. Watch and see. The petition has begun in St. Kitts and Nevis.
