Man fined for cultivation of cannabis

first_imgLocalNews Man fined for cultivation of cannabis by: Dominica Vibes News – January 23, 2015 Wayne Daniel of Shawford, who pleaded guilty to three drug-related charges when he appeared before Magistrate Bernard Pacquette on Friday 30 January 2015, has been fined two thousand five hundred dollars.Mr Daniel was charged with possession of 554 grams of cannabis, cultivation of 1000 cannabis plants and possession with intent to supply the drug which has a street value of $1221.00.According to information revealed in court by police prosecutor sergeant Davidson Cadette, the police obtained a search warrant for the premises of Wayne Daniel on Tuesday 20 January 2015 based on information indicating that Mr Daniel was in possession of a shotgun.The search was executed about 5:30 am and upon arrival the officers knocked on the door and although Daniel responded, he did not come to open the door. The officers opened the door, went in and found the defendant lying on his bed. The police introduced themselves and informed him of the warrant.Upon searching the bedroom a yellow plastic bag with what appeared to be cannabis was found. He was cautioned and he replied, “weed that there for me to smoke”. As the search continued, more of the drug was found hanging from a line in another room and Daniel was again cautioned.Additionally, thirteen (13) black trays with what appeared to be cannabis seedlings were also found. He was cautioned and said, “That is about 500 trees.” He was arrested for the offense and transported with the alleged drug to the Police Headquarters.The alleged drug was analyzed by the Government analyst and confirmed to be cannabis. Attorney at Law Peter Alleyne who mitigated on Daniel’s behalf, appealed to the court for leniency considering that his client cooperated with the police. Mr Alleyne asked the court to impose a sentence that would discourage Daniel from expanding his cultivation instead of a hefty fine that he cannot pay.“He left his door open suggesting he doesn’t have any enemies, he is a hardworking man,” Mr Alleyne continued.Moreover, Attorney at Law Ronald Charles who said he knew the client personally also pleaded with the magistrate for leniency.“Wayne is a community man; he has been very involved in sports development in the community,” Charles said.But Magistrate Pacquette said “the law is still the law no matter how much society is trying to decriminalize marijuana”.“A message has to be sent that if you are engaged in these activities there will be consequences,” the magistrate said.Daniel was fined $2500.00 for the cultivation of marijuana charge which has to be paid in 6 months and in default of payment he will be sentenced to 6 months in jail.There was no separate penalty for the other charges.
