Matters regarding the findings of the St. Kitts and Nevis marijuana commission were discussed at a federal cabinet meeting at the Nevis Island Administration’s cabinet room at Pinney’s Estate in Nevis on February 18, 2019.
Dr. Hon. Timothy Harris, Prime Minister of St. Kitts And Nevis, made the disclosure in a statement prior to the meeting which forms part of the team unity administration’s 4th anniversary celebrations.
He said “today’s special meeting of the federal cabinet on the island of Nevis allows for this historic document to be deliberated upon by the cabinet taking into consideration input and feedback we anticipate to come from the commissioners,”.
The government of St. Kitts and Nevis put together the commission mandating it to deal with marijuana, its use, consequences and the way forward. Phase one involved conducting a situational analysis and exploration of the latest evidence regarding the legal, medical, social, economic and religious implications of marijuana and its derivatives.
In phase two a series of consultative meetings were held on both islands, while in phase three the commissioners dealt with summarising the findings and producing a final report which would serve to inform the decisions of the federal cabinet.
