Increase in marijuana cultivation in Barbados

The police report an increase in marijuana cultivation in Barbados.

Acting Assistant Commissioner, William Yearwood, made the revelation following a graduation ceremony for St. Students of the St. Giles Primary School who took part in the Drug Awareness Resistance Education (DARE) program.

He says the success of the police in intercepting drug shipments is forcing people involved in the drug trade here to try to plant their own crop.
