Our Attorney General Mr Faris Al-Rawi, whose office I respect, was reported as saying each home will be allowed to grow four male marijuana plants, this caused me to smile. Male and female plants, thanks for the info.
I wonder if the smokers check for this?
However, more importantly, I would like to know who will be monitoring the thousands of homes all over Trinidad and Tobago to ensure that this regulation is up held?
Let’s get where the rubber meets the road. This is T&T, where crime has become a way of life; corruption and dishonesty are now the norm in many circles.
Does my dear friend really have the faith that all citizens who want to grow that stuff if decriminalising laws are passed, will only plant 4 male plants?
The big question is which entity will be monitoring weed growing at homes, is it the TTPS who are still having a hard time dealing with the serious crime situation in T&T?
Is it that we are leaving it up to the honesty and integrity of all citizens? I wish us all the luck in the world.
There are thousands of homes in our country. Are we going to be paying people to carry out regular searches? Do our citizens know that this will be impossible? Guess what, they will do their own thing and forget about four male plants.
What about the children? These plants will surely not be grown in a room under lock and key, with children around. With these four male plants, it is like putting a fish in the reach of a cat and telling the cat not to interfere and go its merry way daily.
Eventually something will give. Children today are bright and they will find a way to get some leaves and begin their own small factory.
My advice to parents is, if this decimalising law gets the approval of the Parliament, which I am hoping it does not, “keep your head on,” especially with your children and those under your care for whom you are responsible.
