The St Kitts-Nevis Government says it will consider and consult further on creating the framework for the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes after a national commission submitted a number of recommendations. Prime Minister Dr Timothy Harris told Parliament that the National Marijuana Commission, which had been appointed to consult with the public and enquire into the wide-ranging issues surrounding marijuana use, had issued 13 recommendations for consideration. Harris said that the commission had recommended that the Drugs Act be amended given the blanket criminalisation of cannabis has been overtaken by passage of time and regional and international developments.
