House: cannabis decriminalisation Bill tabled
A Bill to decriminalise cannabis in amount of 3g or less has been brought before MPs by the Government. But amendments to the Misuse of Drugs Act, presented in Parliament by Attorney-General Trevor Moniz, appeared to take both the Opposition and Speaker of the House Randy Horton by surprise.
Shadow Attorney-General Michael Scott protested that the Bill clashed with the Progressive Labour Party’s own decriminalisation Bill, brought to the House in February. Having not had the chance to “peruse” the Bill, Mr Horton told MPs he would have to read it first and reflect.
Mr Moniz apologised to the shadow minister, saying he had been unable to discuss it with Mr Scott before Parliament — with Mr Horton responding: “That’s what we must do.”
