Grenada expects to pass marijuana decriminalization law in 2024

Marihuana-768x432
Saint George, Dec 5 (Prensa Latina) The Government of Grenada plans to approve in the first months of 2024 a law on the decriminalization of marijuana to promote its therapeutic use, an official document stated today.

According to the text on the State budget for next year, in this way the Executive would advance towards the goal of developing an industry linked to the production of derivatives of the plant for medicinal purposes.

With this initiative, Grenada seeks to diversify its economic base and create new engines to drive growth.

This should result in the elaboration and commercialization of products made with cannabis (as it is also known), but also allow the possession of only five plants or 24 grams, particularly for members of the Rastafarian movement.

In September 2022, the Government established a commission in charge of shaping the referred legislation and the regulations that will control the future industry, in addition to carrying out the consultations, the informative campaign and the suggestions to raise the necessary infrastructure in the emerging sector.

Apart from Grenada, neighboring St. Vincent and the Grenadines is also taking steps to legalize the use of marijuana for its properties to address various health problems.
