Gros-Islet Police and Drug Unit clear large plots of cannabis

The Gros-Islet Police on Thursday March 5, 2015 conducted an eradication exercise in the Beausejour area around 3:30 a.m. 1,333 fully grown cannabis plants and 100 seedlings were uprooted and destroyed.

Also on Thursday March 5, 2015 the Drug Unit of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force conducted an eradication exercise in the Belle Vue area located in Dennery.

As a result of this exercise, a total of 6,682 fully grown cannabis plants and 3,000 seedlings was uprooted and destroyed. No one was arrested as a result of these exercises.

Commissioner of Police Mr. Vernon Francois, in a statement earlier this year, reiterated that cannabis remains an illegal substance on the law books of Saint Lucia. The island, Mr. Francois says will not be a safe haven for drug trafficking and, according to the Commissioner of Police, there will be no abating of efforts on the part of law men to ensure that this momentum continues.

The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force has undertaken a number of successful operations to crackdown on the cultivation of cannabis.
