St. Vincent & Grenadines: Farmers want safe ganja storage amidst volcanic eruption

Vincentian ganja farmers are asking for the security of the crops amidst an order by the authorities not to visit the La Soufriere volcano, which is in an effusive eruption phase.

In a press statement on Monday, president of the Cannabis Revival Committee (CRC), Junior “Spirit” Cottle, noted that in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, cannabis is grown mainly on the mountains surrounding La Soufriere.

He said that as a result of the effusive eruption, which was announced last Tuesday, cannabis growers have been asked, for their own safety, to vacate the areas surrounding the volcano.

Cottle said that in doing so, farmers are leaving unattended “thousands of dollars worth of produce in which they have invested, following the passage of an amnesty law, which makes it legal for them to grow their ganja and to sell it to licensed purchasers”.
