Only days after the country’s police chief played down legalization a Bahamas committee charged with laying out an economic recovery plan has recommended the country legalize marijuana for recreational, medical and religious use.
- Make government-owned land available for the cultivation of cannabis, with provisions for small-scale farmers and the Rastafarian community.
- Allow for the possession of adult-use marijuana up to 2 ounces. Unsanctioned possession exceeding that limit should be punishable with a fine.
- Provide for the licensure of cannabis cafes, resorts and guesthouses for on-premises consumption.
- Exempt hemp and derivative products with minimal or no THC from regulatory limits.
