(CNS): Members of the public walking along the shoreline west of Spotts Dock on Saturday morning came across a wrecked boat containing a package of ganja. RCIPS officers responded to the report and recovered the drugs and the vessel, which police said had received extensive damage. Police said, “There was also no sign that persons had gone into the water or were in distress.” A search of the vessel and out to sea was conducted with assistance from the police helicopter, but no other packages were found. The boat was later removed from the location.

The matter is now under investigation and the RCIPS is asking anyone who may have seen or heard anything concerning the incident to contact the George Town Police Station at 949-4222.

    Sorry. But its got to be said. All those that believe making the weed legal here will stop the drug smuggling are dead wrong.

    When those boats come its not just weed they bring. Its guns, hard drugs, like cocaine. Its persons who want to come here for some reason (the last set had a male wanted for raping and murdering a little 12yr old girl).

    Making it legal wont stop a damn thing, we too close to Jamaica. Jamaica is a poor country, Cayman is a rich country. Why you think they coming here by the plane loads for. For a vacation….

    Get real. Stop living in a drug induced haze all your life.

    Cue all the cancel culture crap now…

      At last, a word of truth and reason. Making drugs legal here would be a very bad move.

        Making a plant illegal has just caused misery to all involved in the black market economy. How are you to tell me what I can and cannot consume in the privacy of my own home

      Legalize weed. Enough said

      But… you’re wrong.

      Most of the shipments are ganja, because that’s what sells. The guns and cocaine are more problematic, but comprise a much smaller market.

      Knock out the weed shipments overnight and you’ll see the cocaine, people, and weapons smuggling suddenly become much riskier with much bigger penalties.

      No longer could a shipment of contraband be lost to a seizure without a lot of bad people getting worried about bigger, badder people doing bad things to them.

      With 10 years plus in prison for firearms, you’ve got to be a real special kind of stupid to get involved. Use a weapon, and that brings onto you a whole load of heat.

      You sound like you don’t even partake or have personal experience with the plant.

      Which part of “if I could grow my own, I wouldn’t buy it from ANYONE else” don’t you understand?

      The quality of what gets smuggled in is literal trash. People here love to buy homegrown because it’s so fresh. Would be no more reason to bring the other stuff like guns and pedos.

      why are you cancelling people who want weed legalized.

      You and your beloved cancel culture trying to shut everyone up that doesn’t agree with you

      They sure keep all those extra details under wraps, eh!
      Why isn’t any of that reported? They only tell about the # of bales intercepted. Never a mention of guns or hard drugs, like cocaine…

    If they just legalize it, we wouldn’t have these people coming from Jamaica who usually bring firearms that make their way onto the streets.

    • Dummy says:

      Thats bull and you sure as hell know it. The guns are for the idiots smoking the weed they bring.


      • Anonymous says:

        I consume it daily and don’t need a gun or break any other laws. I get it delivered while you sit back and think keeping it illegal is stopping consumption.

        Grow what you smoke; no need for smuggling boats.

    The helicopter wasn’t up ‘searching’ until late morning….not sure what they were looking for offshore from Ocean Club at that time. SMH

      To confirm that there were no bodies, drugs or persons in distress in the water associated with that boat. Hopefully that was a good enough reason to deploy them.

    All because the powers that be cannot or will not come up with a comprehensive plan to protect our borders because it doesn’t not benefit certain of their own financial interest. So many others things beside drugs that we need to be protected from. When a simple Radar system could or would suffice and definitely be cost effective for these islands.

      we have a radar which is how they detect the boats. only type of radar we don’t have is for the airport

    Where are the Jamaicans that didn’t get caught, who are possibly spreading covid?!!!

    • Anonymous says:

      Good point on the COVID. Whoever they are, they’ve penetrated the borders and very likely imported COVID.

      Enjoying the two years salary they just made in a day’s work. Do the math on Jamaica’s minimum wage and you can see why they take this risk weekly.

      And even if they get caught trying to leave out on the next canoe, that money is already sent back home to their families.

      Smuggling won’t stop as long as we keep it lucrative, and keeping it illegal makes it possible to sell it for 100x profit – literally.

    Black market loaded with high quality herb now. Pointless war against a medically prescribed plant. Allow Caymanians to grow their own and we won’t need to import it from drug lords or doctor’s monopoly.
