a true victory for the government against crime in the Bahamas. Getting dangerous drugs out of the hands of criminals will make the life of all of us safer.

This is crazy! Arresting a tourist for weed?!?!?

Legalize it. Weed is less dangerous than liquor, there is no logical reason to keep it illegal...

No one has ever been inebriated on weed. And Tribune please don't tell that dumb story of your staffer who was obviously on cocaine....

Look at how successful it has been legalized in the USA. It really is time to stop making criminals out of people who use weed....
