The Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines is moving ahead to operationalise the machinery for the medicinal cannabis industry, the bills for the establishment of the industry having recently been passed with support from the opposition New Democratic Party (NDP)

Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves at his first news conference for 2019 on Monday was quoted as saying “I want to say to the public that I’ve had several discussions already with Minister of agriculture, Saboto Caesar, Jerrol Thompson, medical doctor and special projects advisor in the Prime Minister’s office and other public servants in setting the machinery in place for us to start the actual operation”.

According to Asbert news network, the Prime Minister added that the law was passed but a chief executive officer and staff of the authority has to be appointed and a board has to be setup.
