It would be interesting to know the number of people serving time for marijuana offences? The average length of sentence is another significant stat?
Police seem to be making more arrests for marijuana offenders than for all other crimes. Our prisons must now be full of them?
The fact of the matter is that this criminalisation will not affect the general usage of marijuana and police will only find themselves chasing their own tails!
Instead of filling up our prisons with young productive men, we ought to find a much better way in dealing with marijuana.
Surely the number of users Fiji wide far outweighs offenders in prison. I believe we would require all the hotel rooms in Fiji to house every user if they all got arrested, not forgetting the many visitors to our shores!
I believe our current stance is by far the worst option considering its widespread usage.
Remove the blinkers and seek a better option!
