Welsh dad fails in bid to have 10-year sentence cut for growing five cannabis plants

A Welsh dad jailed for 10-and-a-half years on Malta after being caught growing five cannabis plants has failed in his latest bid to have the sentence reduced.

Daniel Holmes from Newport was convicted on the island of Gozo in 2011 and handed a decade-long sentence at Corradino Correctional Facility (CCF) near the Maltese capital, Valetta.

A Constitutional Court hearing, which found his “right to a fair trial had been breached” led to renewed hope last week the 35-year-old would soon be free.

5 Lies About Marijuana That Won't Die Easy

Jamaica drafts ganja decriminalization bill

KINGSTON, Jamaica - Jamaica's justice minister said Tuesday that legislation has been drafted to decriminalize marijuana on the Caribbean island where the drug has been pervasive but prohibited for a century.

Mark Golding told reporters that lawmakers should make possession of 2 ounces or less a petty offense before the end of 2014. He also expects decriminalization for religious purposes to be authorized by then, allowing adherents of the homegrown Rastafarian spiritual movement to ritually smoke marijuana, which they consider a "holy herb," without fear of arrest.
