Gov’t to receive cannabis reform report
A final report detailing local opinions on cannabis reform is to be handed in to Government by April 17, according to the Cannabis Reform Collaborative (CRC).
The group has canvassed views through seven focus groups, targeting different age groups.
Bermuda's laws on cannabis are being appraised following a call last year by National Security Minister Michael Dunkley for a public discussion on decriminalising the drug.
The CRC, an independent volunteer group, recently held a “community conversation” on cannabis which was attended by more than 125 people, according to a statement issued today.
The group has received 23 submissions from the private citizens and organisations thus far, and got more than 1,000 responses to an electronic survey.
Submissions can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org up until 5pm on March 25.
Thanking the community for its feedback, CRC head Stratton Hatfield said the group was looking forward to present its reports and final recommendations to Government and the public “in due time”.
