    Good round them up. Hard drugs have been the scourge of our society for too long, destroying families communities and young men looking for an easy life.
    Well done BPS and tipsters. The only one change will come is by doing things differently. Illegal heroin cocaine and marijuana have no place in our society especially now that they are mixing every and anything in them to stretch or speed the growth (marijuana).

    These suppliers and dealers are vipers who do not care about the damage or havoc caused by users only increasing their wealth. Punishment needs to be harsher for them.

    I don’t smoke marijuana but I wish the BDA Govt would hurry up and legalize it and then regulate it like they do alcohol. Also, psychedelics are being legalized across the US and being used as solutions to help with many mental health problems. BDA, as usual, is slow to even look at any of this.

    What nonsense are you talking about lol marijuana is becoming legal everywhere. No one is putting anything in it to speed the growth lol. If it wasn’t for drug dealers Bermuda wouldn’t have an economy at all. Who else spends cash throughout the day? How do you think so many people own boats? How do you think so many building are built? If it wasn’t from the influx of cash drug dealers put into the economy, most city skylines wouldn’t have ever been built. Miami, New York, London etc.

    You care about skylines and boats??? Wake up their are professionals like psychiatrists therapist social workers teachers mentors coaches psychologist who are dealing with adults whose minds have been damaged by sprays on crops of marijuana as well as other additives used to spur the growth of marijuana for consumption.
