Cayman Islands: Caricom Decriminalisation of Marijuana Report Expected Next Month

St Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister Hon Dr Ralph Gonsalves believes another year of consultations is possible before a regional decision is made on the decriminalisation of medical marijuana and small quantities of the drug.

This even as the Regional Marijuana Commission is expected to deliver its report to Caricom next month on the controversial issue which has drawn widespread debate including here in Cayman.

Dr Gonsalves, speaking with The Cayman Reporter last Thursday (16 June) during a brief visit to the Legislative Assembly, said regional consultations on the issue were inaugurated in his country last Wednesday.

“The Regional Marijuana Commission came to St Vincent along with the relevant officials from Caricom. There were several focus groups and then after the focus group discussions during the day there was a national consultation yesterday evening (Wednesday 15 June).  So the process is in fact going on,” Dr Gonsalves said.
