GANJA WILL KEEP THE ECONOMY AFLOAT

Attorney Grant Connell seems to have agreed with Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves approach to the COVID-19 pandemic, but thinks that marijuana will help to keep the economy afloat.

He told the Serious Offence Court on Tuesday that St. Lucia is currently facing economic hardships as a result of their approach to the COVID-19.

“Our captain was somewhat able to keep the ship here afloat,” Connell said, while making his usual representation of persons charged with drug related offences.

Two such persons were Glenlyn Lee of Sion Hill who pleaded guilty to possession of 214 grams of marijuana with intent to supply, and Garnet ‘Flingo’ Wilkins of Rose Place who pleaded guilty to 1,266 grams of cocaine with intent to supply, and 2,014 grams of marijuana with intent to supply.

Connell pointed out that persons like these should not be sent to prison for such offences, at this time, when it is not mandatory for the Court to do so, as the Drug Act provides for an alternative.

“Cannabis is immune to COVID, it will help to keep the economy afloat legally (medical), and illegally (underground economy), one plant,” Connell posited.
