Medical Marijuana will be managed within a regulated system, says Chair of the St. Kitts-Nevis Marijuana Commission, Dr. Hazel Laws

As part of the unanimous recommendations of the St. Kitts and Nevis National Marijuana Commission, “the use of cannabis and its derivatives for medical and scientific purposes should be permitted under licence and a strict legislated regime.” According to the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) and Chair of the Commission, Dr. Hazel Laws.

“You would have a regulated system where you would have persons who would be registered as being able to cultivate, reap, manufacture and sell and then the patients would be able to go to physicians who would have been trained in terms of prescribing the cannabis medicinal products.Dr. Laws stated that the public needs to be more educated.
