  1. Caribbean governments don't seem to realise that those countries which had promoted and enforced the illegalisation of marijuana and marijuana products are now moving to legalise it!! We don't have to wait for them, we can take a step as sovereign countries and LEGALISE IT!! Marijuana(Hemp) is a natural plant and its benefits FAR outweigh its side-effects!! Legalise it and you will see the drastic change in our economy and decline in socio-economic problems i.e gun and gang crime!! If you don't believe me look at Holland and other countries where marijuana use is legal!

    • I very much agree with this comment. But as always, we are waiting for the "higher powers" (aka the USA and EU) to give us the OK. We need to start research and development into the products we can make with Marijuana (hemp) and create an economically viable industry before they jump on the bandwagon.
