  1. Let me guess, these people gonna be sentenced to 10 years for grass while a rapist gets 5 years for raping a child?
    The system boyyyyy

    • You are so right! When weed is legal and they giving white people license to have marijuana company in Antigua but a rapist of a tender age child will get 5 years cause the judge believe he didn’t know better … smfh

      Antigua fulla shit

      Antigua don’t have no jobs for people and not paying pensioners they money .. let them
      People sell they little weed to their neighbors and family .. Antigua government a stress out people … mek dem smoke dem weed

  2. Why the police don’t harass the students who import their weed as they do not use Antigua grown. Why don’t the police go after the cocaine that comes in to serve the tourists November- May.
    Why do the police still lock up people for weed and huff their weed just before Carnival?
    This country is using the weed to corrupt the system by prosecuting the poor and lowly while rich kids of the high society folks are never picked up. And they control the weed in their closed communities.
    Antigua poor and humble always get lock up for weed.

  3. Why is the police wasting energy and time going after weed when they should focus their time on catching the robbers.
