Ganja recovered 30 November 2019

(CNS): The police discovered more than 100 small packages of ganja hidden in the front bumper of a car at a George Town restaurant on Saturday night. Police said the drugs were found with the help of a K-9 Unit dog, Shadow, who was on patrol with officers in School Road around 10pm when the police said they detected the smell of ganja at the nearby restaurant. As a result a search was conducted, in which Shadow led the officers to a car.

Indicating that there was contraband around the front fender officers soon found the collection of ganja packages under that front bumper, which they seized. The matter is now under investigation, the RCIPS stated in a release.

    Thank you RCIPS for getting this nastiness off of our streets. My guy has some real kush and we can’t have this seed filled bush weed floating around our island.

    The majority of people are definitely gonna vote to legalize it when the survey comes around, I just hope when it’s legal, RCIPS releases everyone who’s been put in prison for ganja related charges!

      This commentary proves why our island is so broken when so much else is going well. Here is a 21st Century individual who thinks the police makes laws. I sure hope you are not legally qualified to vote, since your intellect has certainly not made the minimum standard of maturity.

        Your right, they don’t make laws and can’t even enforce the ones that we really need enforcing. Instead they waste their time on weed and directing traffic. Way to go.

      Just add soil and water. It’s a God given medical plant. Not only the Rastas find religious value in the seed. Of course if you smoke it, it tastes bad. It’s purpose instead is life. 😊

      Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth

    Hum. Now what does the Government think all these “Promotion” sessions that are advertised every weekend are used for.

    These “Promotions” are just a cover for what really happens, Drug Sales.

    Years ago it was just “Sessions” in which the dealers held illegal parties in order to sell their drugs. But the Police kept shutting them down. Now they have “Promotions” which are nothing but legalized “Sessions” in which a large amount of drug sales take place by the dealers who are the “Promoters”.

    Do you really think these “Promoters” have the money off hand, as well as make enough money from entrance fees to pay for some of the venues used, like Pedro Castle or the talent/DJ’s attending and still make a profit?

    Come on now, XXXX
    Every weekend these events are happening.

    What do you think the 1000lbs of weed is brought here almost weekly for.

    Come on CIG and RCIPS. You all behind the times BAD. You all slow as rass.

    They just figured out a way to get around enforcement. This last set was near one of these venues………

      You sound like an out-of-touch old fart that never ventures out of their yard after sunset. Old people like you locking young Caymanians like me up because you bought into the 1900s “devil’s lettuce” propaganda paid for by the alcohol, pharmaceutical, paper and tobacco industries.

        Cannabis is a huge competitor to all of those industries whereas each doesn’t necessarily compete as much, Eg the paper and alcohol industries. It was also used as a vessel for racist incarceration so of course legislation was made against it.

        A 1960s treaty which classified cannabis as the same schedule as cocaine and heroin is what causes a large barrier to it being fully legal in NATO nations.

        That schedule means it doesn’t recognize any medical benefits at all and has extreme risks. Explain why it is medically legal in the Cayman Islands yet isn’t even decriminalized yet??

        The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

    Past time to decriminalise ganja, Government subsidise local farmers to grow, package it, tax it and sell it for the benefit of the CIG coffers, thus removing the criminal element from the process.

    The technology already exists for ‘field sobriety’ tests for ganja, saliva drug swab tests and “pot brethalysers.”

    We have to grow into the future. It’s not a matter of being left behind, but staying competitive and equipped to address the concerns and cultural changes of the changing times.

      While the rest of the world is legalizing and taxing cannabis, a little weed bust in Cayman still makes the news.

      Couldn’t agree more. Trinidad just made headlines that they are decriminalizing marijuana, https://trinidadexpress.com/newsextra/ag-makes-case-for-recreational-and-medical-marijuana/article_1d831f06-0d5a-11ea-b589-a71f4749079c.html when will our politicians find the testicular fortitude to do something bold and leading instead of waiting and following. This could be a new industry for many young caymanians to get into and start businesses.

      FYI, we are a TAX FREE country and I’d prefer to smoke “illegal” weed than pay any sort of tax on it.

        We call them “duties”, but they are still a pay-as-you-go tax.

        So, you wouldn’t trade illegal ganja with the risk that comes with it, for regulated, legal, ganja with no criminality associated with it, and probably a lower net cost?

          I agree.. I want to grow my own medicine to ensure it’s free of pesticides.

          Not pay drug lords or big pharma to import it here. Make Caymanians grow and sell it to the tourists who keep asking for it.

          Put money in unemployed & farmer’s hands and tax the sales at 8% for locals and 22% for tourists to fund gov programs.

            lol so many scammers in Cayman just like Jamaica alike…hard to trust even the farmers farming for themselves because eventually they will want it stronger for themselves and that alone is just one public risk which they themselves let alone the government (the biz in charge to protect citizens?) wont be in a position to mitigate my g.

            Agree with you that, in addition to CIG marketing it, individuals should be able to legally grow their own.
