Re: BVI laws

Google is not going to provide you with a definitive answer. Find someone with a full Lexis-Nexis or West Law account that can access BVI statutes. Or visit an attorney and pay them the hour or two to research it for you. I don't think you will find a definite answer any other way.

FWIW many years back had family that I love and never for a minute thought would jeopardize my career after I made VERY clear that they cannot bring even the tiniest amount of pot near my work place or home. Found a bag of pot and a pipe in the laundry during a long visit. They assured me that it was a "legal" amount. Smokers tend to have a different appreciation of reality IMHO.

BVI laws

You sound like you are inviting trouble your way no matter what advise you get. The best answer is what Paul Harvey used to say " If you don't
want to get in trouble just don't do it"

SteveInMD I do plan on asking the police. I just want information. I have nothing go hide.

Re: BVI laws

You oviously want to be on that boat with those people, it has been suggested that you contact the BVI police for the most accurate information. But as drugs other than perscription are illegal you may be put on a watch list. Remember there is guilt by association. I would find a pressing engagement elseware.

Re: BVI laws

I don't smoke. Not for legal or moral reasons. It just makes me stupid and I don't like that. But if your friends are going to smoke, stop at Foxy's for a drink and have them walk down the street a short distance and engage the young men hanging around. But make sure they smoke it all and not bring it on the boat.

You misunderstand. I am asking to know the rules. It's no reflection on the actual people going on the trip.

SteveInMD So far we know the crew member will have to pay a fine and will either go to jail or be sent home. The boat may be impounded. We've seen nothing about any legal responsibility for the captain, or if different rules apply for different amounts. (The searches I've done haven't yeilded anything either.)

Re: BVI laws

Marijuana is very frowned upon by authorities, so much so that immigration and visitation by Rastafarians was once regulated by legislation in the BVI. Being caught with even a small personal amount of marijuana will almost certainly lead to a stiff fine usually in the region of US$1,000 and instant deportation.

I have driven past it, it does not look inviting.
