The police have noticed that there is a false belief among the population about a tolerance policy on Saba. This is absolutely not the case. The police will continue to actively monitor cannabis possession and its cultivation.
It is about time to change the law and allow hemp to be legal like in European Netherlands.
Well Hemmie, you’re an elected official. Get it done!
