The Regional Commission on Marijuana, chaired by Professor Rose-Marie Belle Antoine, the dean of the Faculty of Law at the St Augustine campus of the University of the West Indies, staged the first of its national consultations on the use of the drug for medicinal purposes. Last year, Caribbean Community (Caricom) leaders agreed on the composition of a commission to examine marijuana legalisation throughout the 15-member regional bloc. A statement posted on the Caricom Secretariat website noted that the main issue underpinning marijuana liberalisation surrounds its classification as a drug.
