Meeting On The Decriminalization Of Marijuana

February 22, 2017

“Gauging the temperature of the community on the agenda of the decriminalization of marijuana“ will be the topic of a branch meeting set to be held at 6.00pm tomorrow [Feb 23] at the Warwick Workman’s Club.

Constituency 24 Warwick South East MP Lawrence Scott said that this is a branch initiative, as based on canvassing over time, they discovered a “recurring theme of decriminalization of marijuana, especially among 19-25-year-olds.”

Mr Scott said the initiative “recommended itself” as it appeared that a “significant number of constituents both living inside and outside Constituency 24″ were interested.

“I, along with my Branch Chairperson, who will be chairing the meeting, will ask questions both pro and con on this and related topics, and listen to feedback from the audience,” Mr. Scott said.

“This represents a continuation of our series of meetings and initiatives which we have branded as ‘Stop, Start, Continue.’ Simply stated, that means what should we start doing, stop doing, and continue doing when it comes to policy initiatives emanating from Constituency 24.

“Finally, this positions me as a Parliamentarian to have consultation before legislation.”

For more information, contact Lawrence Scott by calling 505-8633 or email lscott@plp.bm.

  3. Will says:

    What’s to talk about? It’s happened. This is just going to either be people voicing opinions as to why it shouldn’t be allowed versus those who think it doesn’t go far enough. I’m with the latter but sadly nothing will be done from voicing your opinion at Warwick workmans.

  7. Real Deal says:

    We need to make sure we set it up so that we work it into the tourism sector. Then we can pay someone to make us a quality strain and name it after Bermuda or the Bermuda Triangle. I don’t think Bermuda has any indigenous strains.
