AN American woman from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, was arrested for possession of dangerous drugs on Wednesday at the Prince George Wharf.

Shortly before 1pm, officers from the Tourism Policing Unit, acting on information, reportedly went to a cruise ship moored at Prince George Wharf, where they arrested the woman for a quantity of marijuana found in her possession.

The woman is expected to appear in court soon to face charges.

Police also reported that two illegal firearms were taken off the streets of New Providence on Wednesday.

Shortly before 5pm, officers from the Selective Enforcement Team (SET), acting on intelligence, conducted a search of an abandoned building on Palm Beach Street, where they uncovered a pistol-gripped shotgun.

Two hours later, SET officers acting on intelligence conducted a search of a building on Anathol Street, Ridgeland Park West, where they found a pistol and a quantity of marijuana.

No arrests were made in either incident.

Can WE THE PEOPLE ask for her release in exchange for taking in the DPM? "Dangerous" is word so arbitrarily used these days.

Our laws concerning the weed are from yesteryear and are hurting many that do not deserve the punishment they endure. This woman will go home with a horror story about The Bahamas and it's draconian legal system. Never mind the thousands of young black men whose life has been destroyed because they got caught smoking weed. Progressive leaders would make sure these laws are made more in line with the thinking of 2016.

Mr. Seeit, the cannabis drug IS QUITE DANGEROUS. You can get arrested and thrown in the clinker with hardened criminals, who may decide to beat and rape you, for possessing it.

if you are lucky you get a day in court, if you are unlucky you get bail and get shot by some vigilante out there. If none of the above, you rot in jail and have to ask mommy to bring mo' cannabis to the clinker, and if you choose to riot at the jail you become a threat to national security.

What do they mean the cruise lady had "a quantity" ???? Like 3 joints? Or ten pounds?

Again, where is the Christian Council here to protect this lady from .... (well there are things you can't say - right? - our Libel laws are strong in this country.

This insanity is costing all of us. We are paying a very very high price to maintain our stupidity.

These old laws need to go the way of the horse and buggy.

......all kinds of firearms being smuggled into the country and the police want to focus on busting tourists with weed. This nation has no priorities.
