Police are once again reminding citizens that they are only legally allowed to carry up to 30 grammes of marijuana on their person, and cultivate up to four marijuana plants. 

This latest reminder comes after officers of Eastern Division seized over 230 grammes of marijuana in Sangre Grande. 

The exercise was conducted between 4pm and 8pm on Monday, and involved officers of the Eastern Division Task Force, the Special Operations Unit, and the Criminal Investigations Department, led by Sgt Katwaroo, and Cpl Ramnarine.
