COCA-COLA BILLIONAIRE ARRESTED WITH 5,000 PLANTS

Cannabis Now looks into the case of Alkiviades “Alki” David, who was arrested on the island of St. Kitts after authorities found about 5,000 plants and cuttings on his private jet. David is the founder of SwissX hemp products and an heir to a European Coke bottling fortune.

The nation of Saint Kitts and Nevis appears to be in the process of reforming its cannabis laws. David, who claims the cargo is all hemp, says he and a business partner were arrested after talks with the prime minister about creating a local hemp industry broke down.
