Selling Betelnut Banned

It is interesting to note that selling of betel-nuts in Honiara Street is banned. Hope that this will work as law enforcement officers are struggling to stop these vendors especially in the hearts of Honiara city.

What interest me though is the fine..$100 on the spot..this amount is small to those regulars.. it is suppose to be higher than that if it is to ban selling of betel-nut. The other thing is if selling of betel-nut is banned then what is the alternative for people to meet their end days living. it is quite hard for people in Honiara to just survive on begging people.

Let's look and see if selling of betel nut is banned at Museum and Point Cruz area.
