If it's not this trip it could happen another time so I want to know where I would stand as captain in the BVI. I know the rules in the USA and have no problem making my rules clear if I think there might be a problem with someone.
Based on the information in your post, if someone were caught onboard with pot it would be their problem alone, and not mine. Could this be correct?
As captain, I am not sure that is the case. And how much are they going to have aboard? At some point you go from user to seller based upon quantity, right?
Honestly, that might be a lawyer question and I wouldn't take anything from someone on Sailnet as advice - and I do not mean that meanly. It's just that could have serious implications and you need solid legal advice on that one.
PS On a lighter side, have you considered suggesting they charter in Puget Sound instead? (snicker)
