Dancehall artiste Papcaan is scheduled to return to court on July 7.

Popcaan has pleaded not guilty to smoking ganja when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court Friday.

The artiste, who is a member of the Vybz Kartel-led Portmore Empire, was arrested on May 9. According to police reports, on the day in question at about 8:00 pm, policemen were on patrol on Mannings Hill Road in St Andrew when they spotted a motorcar with four men aboard.

The car was stopped and the entertainer, who was driving the car, was seen with a ganja spliff in his mouth.

PopCaan was then taken to the Constant Spring Police Station where he was arrested and charged and was later released on $5,000 bail.

The station officially went on air on August 1, 1990. Reggae in the morning, Reggae in the evening, Reggae in the night was the cry. Critics said it was impossible to sustain a 24-hour Reggae music station. In fact, so strong was the impact, it proved that this format was something the Jamaican public yearned for. The 'little station that could' got all media houses in Jamaica to stand up and take note.
