Reposted from @candidchronicle - Coca-Cola heir and Greek billionaire was arrested on the Caribbean Island of St. Kitts with more than $1.3MM worth of cannabis. About 5,000 plants, seeds, and products were seized after a search of his private jet. @alkidavid was charged with intent to supply, possession of controlled drugs and importation of a controlled drug into the federation, according to officials from the St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force. David claims the plants on board were “all hemp” and were related to a new venture to start a legal cannabis business in the region. In April, he announced a newly formed a consortium aimed at developing the cannabis business in Eastern Caribbean nations. Reportedly, David, had come to the island to “build relationships” with local farmers, in hopes that they would grow hemp for him on their farms. He would then purchase those plants for his own CBD company, @Swissx. “We’re bringing an opportunity to St. Kitts which is going to benefit my business, which is to buy as much biomass of hemp we can grow here,” he said. Dr. Henry Browne, a local attorney believes David may have broken the law either way. Browne reportedly said that the Federation—St. Kitts and Nevis—does not distinguish between cannabis or hemp, or between plants that contain THC and those that don’t: they’re all considered to be cannabis, and they’re all currently illegal. Although, the same day that David was arrested, the Federation’s government had its first reading of a Cannabis Bill that could potentially legalize cannabis for medicinal, religious, and recreational purposes. The island nation in the Caribbean is a well-known tourist destination, in addition to being one of the the world's most distinguished tax havens. 📸 @fortunegreece
Eyes and ears are a pilots biggest asset, so protecting them should be your biggest priority. Having a noise cancelling headset is a great start, but wearing ear protection during a walkaround is equally important, even if you look like a goof 😂
Do you guy recommend any good hearing protection for walkarounds?
Felt inspired, might delete later...
I had this photo taken in the middle of my instrument training. To me, it signifies the moment I decided to go all-in for my pilot dream. There was a lot of fear, what-ifs, and doubts on whether or not flying was the right decision. I had to let go of old dreams and venture far outside of my comfort zone in order to make it happen, but as soon as I did, I felt all of that fear and doubt get left behind. I wish I could tell you that it was smooth sailing, er, flying from there, but dreams never are. Sometimes, I felt discouraged and frustrated, and would even question whether I was meant to be a pilot. I’m so happy I pushed through those moments in order to make it to where I am today.
For anyone out there struggling in their journey towards their dream, be encouraged that every storm passes and that every failure strengthens you. Keep pushing through it! You’ll be so happy you did when you look back on those moments from the other side.
Enjoy every step of the journey, because it matters just as much as the destination. Jets are fun and all, but sometimes I wish I could go back and doink around in a little katana through the mountains of Utah.
Lastly, hard work ALWAYS pays off. Even in the face of failure, knowing you worked hard leaves you with no regrets. Hard work will also help you overcome that same failure. *
Hope everyone had a Happy Hump Day!!! 🐪 Mine was filled with delays and a toasty CRJ (cuz our air conditioning stinks), but I have an awesome crew with awesome attitudes, which always makes a hard day much easier!
Took a little break from posting cuz social media is TIME CONSUMING AS HECK and I’ve been a travel psycho going everywhere nonstop, but now I’m starting to chill out (a little) 🤷🏻♀️ I’ll try to include y’all more on my glamorous regional FO lifestyle (so basically pictures of me delayed and sweating in a CRJ) ✈️❤️
