While the State may be looking at decriminalising marijuana next year, until then, police are reminding citizens of this country that possession of marijuana is illegal.
This reminder comes after officers of the Santa Cruz police station seized 100 marijuana seedlings and eight fully grown marijuana trees in an open lot of land on Blackford Street, Santa Cruz on Christmas Eve.
The seizure was made in what appeared to be someone's home garden.
No arrests were made.
The officers involved in the exercise included In Jaikaran, Cpl Ramkissoon, PC holder, and PC Dwarika among several others.
