Omar McGibbon denied dealing in ganja. However, he told the court that he was going to sea and that he needed the ganja to stop his “belly pain”.
“It’s a tonic?” Resident Magistrate Georgianna Fraser asked.
McGibbon told the court that he heard on a programme that ganja could assist his belly pain.
“How long you’ve been using it,” Fraser questioned.
“Since the bike accident, not long, from 2010,” McGibbon responded.
“My my, so a the first you a get caught,” said Fraser.
McGibbon was ordered to pay a fine of J$100 or serve ten days, plus an additional fine of J$5,000 and give his fingerprint to the police.
