Push for marijuana legalisation continues



Chairperson of The Bahamas Cannabis Research Institute, Terry Miller.

A new foundation has made its way to the forefront pushing for the legalisation of marijuana ahead of a soon-to-be-released report from the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) on the drug.

Chairperson of The Bahamas Cannabis Research Institute (BACARI) Terry Miller said he hopes The Bahamas does not get left behind, as the world moves forward with its legalisation.

Miller said the proper education on the drug would be enough for persons to recognise its value health-wise, as well as economically.

Miller also said that if the country moves forward in legalizing the drug, the foundation already has a five-point-plan.
