St Kitts and Nevis’ prime minister, Dr Timothy Harris, says his government is ready for open dialogue with the relevant stakeholders on the issue of the decriminalization of marijuana.

Harris, responding to a question while appearing as a guest on WINN FM 98.9’s Voices programme last week, said the decriminalization of marijuana is a matter for national consultation. 

“We have a submission going to the Cabinet hopefully next week where we are attempting to set up that broad based committee that would look at all of the issues involved in the use of marijuana and all other matters in relation to it, and that will have representation from the Rastafarian community, from health, from law enforcement, the schools etc., and such other relevant parties of course will have input as the commission, if you will, goes about doing its work and hearing from the people,” Harris stressed.
