AN American tourist was arrested on Saturday for alleged possession of drugs.

According to police, the New York resident was arrested by officers from the Tourism Policing Unit shortly after 11am.

Officers, acting on information, went aboard a cruise ship moored at Prince George Wharf, where they arrested the man after they found a quantity of marijuana in his possession.

The investigation continues.

Another pointless arrest. The US and a lot of tourist competitors are legalizing the use of recreational and medicinal marijuana. No matter what your personal beliefs are, if we want to stay competitive we have to adjust our way of thinking, and fast. This type of arrest does not warrant news coverage.
