Man claims bad weed made him crazy

A Kingston labourer who went to an office in Kingston and used a piece of wood to destroy a glass door and window, claiming that he had smoked “bad weed” and heard voices, promised never again to smoke ganja when he appeared in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish court last week.

Junior Christie was recently arrested and charged with malicious destruction of property after he went to the office of Surrey Paving and Aggregate Company Limited on Constant Spring Road in St Andrew and smashed the door and window, valued at $20,000.

The court heard that when the police cautioned Christie he said: “Officer, mi neva mean to destroy anything. Is just a bad weed mi smoke and it mek mi hear voices inna mi head.”

However, when Christie, who was in custody, appeared in court last Friday he pleaded guilty to malicious destruction and was given a six-month sentence that was suspended for a year.

But before the sentence was passed the judge asked Christie if he had told the police that he had smoked “bad weed” and he responded by saying: “At the time of the incident.”

She then asked him if he had anything else to say and he said: “ I want to apologise for my unusual behaviour.”

“You smoke habitually?” Judge Pettigrew-Collins asked.

“I stopped,” Christie answered.

“You stopped because you were in jail,” the judge told him.

“I am not going to do it again,” Christie then vowed.

The judge then handed down the suspended sentenced and explained to Christie that he will serve the six-month sentence if he is convicted for another offence within the next year.

“If I were you, I would stop smoking and stay out of trouble,” she advised him.
