  1. The accused was found to have $2080 worth of cannabis.However they seized the dollars found and still charged him $6,000.
    In all he was relieve of a chunk of dollars:EC $6000 in Court,EC$3,740 and US$25 found on the premises.For a grand total of EC$9,807.50.For the weed valued at EC$2,080. That is a rather unreasonable judgement.Why charged so much for so little amounts of herb?
