The Caribbean Community (Caricom) is considered to have some 'competitive' advantage in the cultivation of the marijuana plant for medicinal purposes and may wish to explore any commercial benefit from a potential multi-billion dollar industry, according to a report now before Caricom heads. The report followed a request by St Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves and was compiled on behalf of the Caricom Bureau. It has not been officially released but the Jamaica Observer has obtained a copy.
