NASSAU, BAHAMAS — The Cabinet of The Bahamas has appointed a subcommittee to review marijuana legislation in other jurisdictions, said Attorney General Carl Bethel yesterday.
In an interview with Eyewitness News, Bethel noted that that subcommittee will be seeking expert advice from around the Caribbean region and Canada in order to advance the matter.
He said he has also requested a review of draft legislation from around the region, in order to advise the Cabinet committee.
Last July, the attorney general indicated that a draft bill on marijuana legislation was expected to be presented to Cabinet “in very short order”.
The Bahamas National Commission on Marijuana (BNCM) has completed its survey codifying the views of Bahamians on the legalization of cannabis in the country.
