    The only effect this raid will have is that the price of ganja will go up.

    if you allow dangerous cigarettes and alcohol, then you should allow ganja.

    Unfortunately we live in a country with too many shortminded, naive, conservative and brainwashed religious fanatics, so crime will keep on the rise.

    We are a hundred years behind the rest of civilized world. These conservative forces slow down the social progression of the new generation.

    BTW, when is the first caymanian sex shop going to open ?

      FYI – ALL of Cayman is a sex shop, alcohol & cigarettes on every corner.For longtime we've had the dubious honour of the highest per capita alcohol consumption in the world.

      If the stats were  reported, it would also be the same for STDs… especially amongst our young people.

      Yes, there are churches are also on every crner, but the Bible, and a real relationship with God, IS the answer to personal inner peace,which can translate to our whole island… if only!

      Short minded, naive and sex shop advocate, my message to you if you cant accept our ahort minded, naive way of not wanting ganga on every corner,  no sex shop for you to grovel in, then you should pack u and leave. Make some one happy.

      How about we will allow Ganja, Cigarettes, Alchohol and instead educate people about their benefits/costs.  Wait, that would mean the Churches would have to educate somebody to make a free choice instead of demonize and corner them into an archaic way way of thinking.
