The Sky Could Be The Limit For Bahamas Medical Cannabis Users Who Grow Plants For Personal Use

Permalink Report to webmaster

The Bahamas National Commission on Marijuana Medical proposes that cannabis users in the country should have the right to grow as many plants as they need — and they just might get it.

The commission’s report to the House of Assembly was tabled by Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis this week, edging the Bahamas closer to serious reform with regard to medical cannabis and home cultivation.

A previous version of the draft of the report had recommended limiting patients with a physician-ordered prescription to cultivating just five plants at home.

“We did not want to put a specific amount because circumstances may be different for each individual who is prescribed medical cannabis,” commission co-chair Quinn McCartney said earlier this week.

The report also recommended enacting legislation to protect workers from consequences such as termination for using medical cannabis, and decriminalizing the possession of an ounce or less of cannabis for residents over the age of 21.

“However, it is recommended that further consideration is needed in establishing the age that a person can be in possession of cannabis without a criminal record,” the report noted.

The commission also called for the rules to be subject to review on a regular basis, incorporating analysis and impact studies into its decisions. Still, the commission  did not stake out a position regarding the more controversial topic of legalization of adult-use cannabis.

“Commissioners are aware that decriminalization is, in effect, a form of legalization of the recreational use of cannabis.”
