Jah Cure, born Siccature Alcock, pleaded not guilty to ganja possession when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.
The 32-year-old entertainer appeared in court on a charge of possession of ganja.
According to the allegations, about 11 a.m. last Thursday (April 22), police saw a white BMW being driven recklessly along Dunrobin Avenue, St Andrew, and it was signalled to stop.
The police alleged that while talking to the driver, the aroma inside the vehicle and the scent coming from the accused man's mouth was similar to the essence of marijuana.
The police told the court that he asked the accused if he had ganja in his possession and he was told "yes". The vehicle was searched and an ounce of ganja was reportedly found. The accused man was arrested and charged.
Jah Cure is known for songs such as Love Is, Reflection and his recent hit Call on me with Alison Hinds. He will return to court on May 6.
