Haiti - Insecurity : Drugs-for-guns trade between Haiti and Jamaica
Monday, January 17, police officers from the parish of Saint Catherine (in the south-east of Jamaica) during a control operation in the Planters district, discovered, hidden in a parked suspicious vehicle, a hundred packets of ganja (marijuana) compressed for a total of 935 lbs worth J$4.5 million on the market (or a little less than US$50,000)

Superintendent Hopton Nicholson, Acting Divisional Commander for South St Catherine, informed that this shipment of compressed ganja was to be delivered to Haiti as part of the illegal drugs-for-guns trade between mafia groups of the two countries, and that this was not the first shipment of Ganja seized bound for Haiti as part of this traffic.

Recall that Jamaica is the Caribbean's leading producer of ganja and traffickers also export this drug to other countries in the Caribbean region in exchange for illegal firearms.

The crime rate and violence in Jamaica is soaring, which has forced the Government to impose a state of emergency and curfew in certain sensitive areas with high levels of criminal activity.
