Nabbed On The Jam Cruise

The third annual Jam Cruise had an incarcerating sendoff January 10th, with a dozen passengers arrested for drugs.

About 1,800 jam band fans took off on a Carnival cruise ship in Jacksonville, Fla., heading to the Bahamas.

Along the way, they would enjoy the music of Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Galactic, Keller Williams, Ozomatli, Mofro and 20 other bands. But before the ship embarked, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Department read on the Jam Cruise’s Web site message board that drugs would be smuggled onboard.

With the help of drug-sniffing dogs, authorities busted 12 people while boarding. Booty included marijuana, Ecstasy, heroin, hashish and cocaine.
