Her clean record, said her attorney, was enough to enable Rhonda Elizabeth Hollingsworth to qualify for a bond under the Penal System Reform Act.

Calling her a “valuable member of society”, attorney Kyle Walkes told the District “A” Magistrates’ Court that “benefits should be given to (Hollingsworth) as someone who is not known to the court”.

The attorney’s submissions came after Hollingsworth appeared on four drug charges yesterday.

The 57-year-old shop- keeper, of Golden Rock, the Pine, St Michael, had just pleaded guilty to having cannabis and cocaine in her possession, as well as having a traffickable quantity of cocaine and having cocaine with intent to supply, all on February 8. (HLE)

    Billy you are correct. Then Barbados wouldn’t have anywhere for the people who don’t use drugs to walk. Have you seen the homeless people on the streets in Barbados? Well, I have; and it is not a pitiful sight. Dope heads laying on the ground, and at the entrance of businesses’.

    Much ado about nothing. Prescription narcotics, Alcohol, tobacco are killers and they are all legal. We need to legalize all drugs.
