A Bahamian father of two charged with the cultivation of dangerous drugs for growing pot plants in his backyard claims that the illicit weed germinated accidentally from seeds he discarded while rolling joints.

Of those cases, 36 involved serious or life-threatening events and 34 required hospitalization. In 2019, paediatricians and healthcare providers reported 51 cases of cannabis-related exposure among those under the age of 18, according to the preliminary results of a study set to tun until October 2020.

He opted for the latter, and left a free man – albeit one who will likely find a more secure way of discarding his stems and seeds from now on. Cash was given the choice of spending two months incarcerated at the Bahamas Department of Correctional Facilities, or paying an $800 fine.

McKinney in turn noted that cultivation of drugs is a serious offence under Bahamian law, which continues to prohibit cannabis (or “Indian Hemp,” as it is referred to in Bahamian drug legislation), although Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis has been taking steps to legalize the drug for medical consumption.

The YRP learned of the concern from a citizen who filed an online report last month. The citizen believed the store was selling vape products and cannabis-containing products to “groups of children who appeared to be well under the age of 19,” the YRP reports.

According to CTV News, investigators said the store was not registered to sell cannabis products. “The packaging is so shocking similar to candy there could easily be someone who ingests this as a mistake,” Constable Laura Nicolle of the YRP is quoted as saying.
