There is no one solution for all of Puerto Rico’s problems. Currently the disaster stricken island needs everything from an entirely new infrastructure to a program to dig itself out of its 70-billion-dollar debt. To make matters worse, its population is fleeing to the mainland US in hopes of carving out a better life.

But should the government of Puerto Rico consider legalizing recreational marijuana?

South America grants licenses to grow medical marijuana

2017 will go down on history as one of the most progressive years for the global cannabis community. While there is still a long way to go, the legalisation wave, particularly in the medical field, has reached a large number of parliaments around the world.

Bermuda joins few Caribbean islands to decriminalize marijuana

Bermuda has passed a bill decriminalizing the possession of cannabis after years of lobbying by advocates of the psychoactive drug which is used for both medicinal and recreational purposes.

The island nation’s Misuse of Drugs [Decriminalization of Cannabis] Amendment Act 2017 removes criminal prosecution for the possession of not more than 7 grams of cannabis.

The decriminalization of marijuana does not mean it is legal and can be used without any queries.

According to the Act, prosecutors are permitted to lay charges for any amount of the drug if there is evidence of potential trafficking. The police have also been authorized to seize any cannabis regardless of the amount.
