Bermuda taskforce recommends marijuana decriminalisation
A government appointed task force is recommending the decriminalisation of marijuana in Bermuda.
The task force says the government should take immediate action to enable access to medical cannabis with a prescription.
In its 137-page report, the Cannabis Reform Collaborative said the current drug policy is wasting money and resources and harming people’s lives since career options become limited once a criminal record is established.
It further said cannabis prohibition is not effective.
Caribbean countries have been discussing the idea of decriminalising marijuana for medicinal purposes and a report on the issue is be tabled at the July summit of regional leaders in Antigua.
