Tanesha Parkins, a 27-year-old mother of two, was caught attempting to leave Jamaica with over two pounds of ganja inside her anus and stomach. On January 21, Parkins arrived at the Norman Manley International Airport to board a flight to Curacao when police observed a bulge in her crotch area. A cylindrical package was then removed from her anal cavity.
She pleaded guilty to the charges of possession of ganja, dealing in ganja and taking steps to export ganja. She was fined $10,000 or six months for possession of ganja, $20,000 or six months for dealing in ganja and $41,000 or six months for taking steps to export ganja.
