Minister of Agriculture, Saboto Caesar is encouraging local stakeholders to use the knowledge and skills of international marijuana experts when the local medical marijuana industry gets going.
Government Only Creating Enabling Environment for Medical Marijuana Industry, Says Agriculture Minister
Minister of Agriculture Saboto Caesar has made it clear that the government is merely creating an enabling environment for the establishment of a modern medical cannabis industry in SVG and not establishing the industry.
Vincentian Kamol Wendel Muckett, 23-years old of Union Vale, Bequia was arrested and charged in Barbados last Friday March 23rd with eight drug offences.
As the government considers the establishment of a medical marijuana industry here in SVG, the Christian Council facilitated a meeting with church leaders on the issue and they have formulated a response to the proposal.
At 25.5 percent THC content, SVG can boast of having the best marijuana plant around.
Two Vincentian nationals and A Barbadian have been remanded to prison after appearing in court in relation to drug seizure in Barbados on Sunday.
The use of marijuana for medicinal purposes, will be the best way forward at this time for SVG as it relates to the ongoing discussion on its legalisation.
