The Government of St Kitts and Nevis intends to take the necessary actions to create a sustainable medicinal cannabis industry.
Prime Minister Dr Terrance Drew while speaking during an interview with the SKN Newsline recently said there is much work to do in this regard because as it stands presently “St Kitts and Nevis is well behind when it comes to establishing a cannabis industry”.
He said “Antigua, St Vincent and Jamaica are ahead and we know that people travel to these countries because they want an industry that is well-controlled, and well-monitored and that allowed for the use of marijuana”.
Moreover, Prime Minister Dr Drew made it clear that his administration will ensure that it is the citizens and residents of St Kitts and Nevis who benefit first and foremost from the establishment of this industry.
