Grenada is not quite as ready as other Caribbean countries that have been tapping into the marijuana niche market.
Prime Minister Dickon Mitchell says Grenada is yet to identify a niche market for cannabis.
The country had expressed interest in using the controlled substance for medicinal purposes however Mitchell said yesterday that they are currently awaiting the recommendations of the Commission on Cannabis Legalisation and Regulation which is tasked with undertaking a complete assessment of the pros and cons of legalizing the plant.
“We have not identified a niche market as yet, that is why we have set up a Commission or a committee to really do the heavy lifting to really guide us to where we really want to go,” Prime Minister Mitchell said
“We don’t want to keep on wasting state resources arresting people for a spliff and that sought of things, you know it makes no sense and the police are better off doing proper policing rather than chasing someone for a spliff and so on,” he said.
