    Hard drugs are bad. Question on the street is, how come when they boast of big marijuana busts it’s always followed by lots of coke on de streets. They never turn in the expensive small packages they find. They must turn in the marijuana because it has too large a footprint fot them to keep. That’s exactly why they can’t put a dent into the hard drugs trade. They neede to ease up on the marijuana to enable them to put a dent into coke on the island.

    More job creation = less job dealing. Youngsters graduate from HS and DSC, with a little or no chance of getting a job. I personally don’t support drug dealing, but when jobs are hard to find, what do you expect them to do?…OUR YOUNG PEOPLE NEED JOBS!

    Drug dealing in Dominica is profitable to the dealers because the sentence for such crime is lenient. I’m sure they have counted to cost and view it as a chance worth taking. It’s a very quick money making business. I like to take it slow though…

    As usual, nothing will come of this. For all the drug bust we have heard about over the years, I challenge any Dominican to name me one person in stock farm prison for as a result of a major drug bust by the police. Soon you will see some cops with new vehicles. SMH

    Great job find them where ever they are be it on Land, Sea, or Air, pull them from their dark rat hole. 99 days for them and one day for Law enforcement. God`s speed and protection to our Law enforcement officers while they sacrifice to keep Dominica free of those greedy and Low lives.

      I am no supporter of the police, because i personally believe that many of them are too political,and as an institution, these policemen/women, have done irreparable damage to the force as an institution. If i had my way all of them would be at their homes.However on matters of drug, i have no choice but to support them, since i have seen what drugs have done to people who possessed extreme potential,skills,abilityetc.. So good job by the police. Continue the good work to reduce the amount of drugs on our streets, and on the streets of other islands. The vehicle must have an owner, so more arrests soon.
      Too many young boys in particular, are like paros on the street, in our schools, communities,etc. These criminals are destroying our human resource. THEY NEED TO BE JAILED!!!!!!!

      So you want to bring down Dominica to the level of the U.S. I would not be proud of this. American has since gone down the slippery slopes and is descending into the path of perdition. Were it not for the sincere prayers of some and their penance and sacrifices, God would have already destroyed that country.
      In the Old Testament, Our Almighty Father said, “If he found nine people who pay him homage and pray to him, He will not destroy that land.” Fortunate for America and other countries that the sincere prayers of some are holding back the hands of God, for now anyway.
      When God is fed-up and angry enough about what is occurring in the world, He will let fall fire and brimstones on the earth. He will first go to the bigger countries where, due to their population more abominations are committed which highly offend him. Then, to the smaller ones. As God looks on, such sinfulness and increasing ones cannot last forever. They last for so long.
