PM: Marijuana Use “Part of Our Culture”
Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister Gaston Browne said marijuana use is becoming more socially acceptable, and it is “part of the culture of the country.” However, he said:
“I want to make it abundantly clear that my government is not advocating the use of cannabis; we are against anything that is smoked.”
But Browne reiterated that his government’s intention is to eventually turn marijuana into “useful pharmaceuticals.”
Other Caribbean countries are also en route in implementing similar legislation.
Jamaica and Belize have already decided to amend the legislation to allow personal possession of the substance.[share-btn]
