“Gigi Hadid’s Cayman Islands Marijuana Incident: A Fine without Conviction”

Gigi Hadid Arrested for Marijuana Possession in Cayman Islands – The Hollywood Reporter

Gigi Hadid and her friend Leah McCarthy were fined $1,000 Cayman Islands Dollars after pleading guilty to charges of importing marijuana and drug utensils in the Cayman Islands. The charges were related to their arrival on a private airplane, where a small amount of marijuana was discovered during a luggage search. The two were sentenced for two offenses: importation of a controlled drug and importation of a drug utensil. However, no conviction was recorded, and both Hadid and McCarthy have paid their fines.

A representative for Hadid stated that the model was traveling with marijuana legally purchased in New York City with a medical license. They also mentioned that the use of medical marijuana has been legal in Grand Cayman since 2017. However, it is important to note that importing or exporting cannabis in any form across the Cayman border is illegal, regardless of its legality in other countries. While recreational cannabis use is prohibited in the Cayman Islands, cannabis extracts and traces can be used for therapeutic and medical purposes under a doctor’s prescription.

Gigi Hadid shared moments from her vacation on Instagram, including photos in a bikini, with the caption “All’s well that ends well.” This incident involving Hadid is not the first time a notable person has been caught traveling with marijuana. In a separate incident, WNBA star Brittney Griner was arrested in Moscow for attempting to bring vape cartridges filled with cannabis oil into Russia. She was later released as part of a prisoner exchange.

Overall, Gigi Hadid’s arrest and subsequent release in the Cayman Islands for marijuana possession resulted in a fine without a conviction, allowing her to enjoy the rest of her vacation on the island.
