AN OFFICER from the Bahamas Department of Corrections is in custody after being arrested for possession of dangerous drugs on Wednesday at the prison.

According to police reports, shortly after 1pm, officers from the Drug Enforcement Unit acting on intelligence conducted a search of a male Corrections Officer in the entrance area of the Bahamas Department of Corrections and found a taped package containing just over ten ounces of marijuana in his possession.

The suspect was taken into custody and is expected to appear in court on Thursday to be formally charged.

Marijuana has never killed anyone in all of it 10,000 years of human use but they call it dangerous, Bicycles are more dangerous than marijuana.

I agree with you, it should be legalized. And I deplore anyone using the drug as the reason this story is important for a bad action.

I believe the underlying point is that a corrupt officer of the prisons was either illegally confiscating for person interest or illegally providing an illegal substance to people imprisoned.
