PM’S CHANGE OF HEART TOWARDS MARIJUANA?
Written by George Grant on June 22, 2018
After years of being adamantly opposed to the legalization of marijuana, it appears that Grenada’s Prime Minister, Keith Mitchell may be softening his stance.
Speaking to a group of police officers on Friday, Mitchell suggested that police officers could better spend their time dealing with bigger issues than nabbing persons for smoking a joint. Currently, those found in possession of marijuana could find themselves slapped with a maximum fine of $250,000.
Mitchell does believe that the matter should be re-examined, especially in light of the fact that other Caribbean countries have now made moves towards decriminalization. And globally, pressure has been mounting because of the proven health benefits of what is also referred to as cannabis.
