Last week, the renowned model Gigi Hadid found herself in legal trouble when she was arrested in the Cayman Islands on alleged marijuana possession, as reported by authorities.

The arrest involved Hadid and her friend, influencer Leah Nicole McCarthy. The authorities identified the charges as the importation of marijuana and paraphernalia, following a search of their luggage upon arriving on a private aircraft from the United States to the Cayman Islands on July 10.

During the incident, a small quantity was discovered and recovered by the Cayman Islands Customs and Border Control. In response to the accusations, a representative clarified to CBS News that she had been carrying marijuana legally purchased in New York City, supported by a valid medical license. The representative also highlighted that medical use of marijuana has been legal in Grand Cayman since 2017.

The arrest occurred at Owen Roberts International Airport, and both women were subsequently released on bail. Later, they pleaded guilty, leading to a fine of approximately $1,200. However, it's worth noting that no conviction was officially recorded by the border authorities.
