Forty-one-year-old Richard Morris is to appear in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court tomorrow on charges of breaches of the Dangerous Drugs Act.
The police say Morris, who is from Nine Miles near Spaulding was charged on Tuesday after being held with ganja while attempting to board a flight at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston which was destined for Barbados.
The police say while at the airport Morris was stopped and interviewed by police personnel.
According to them, after providing inconsistent answers to several questions, the Clarendon farmer was subjected to secondary checks by narcotics personnel.
