Bermuda released the draft legislative blueprint to establish a domestic medical cannabis industry, which Attorney General Kathy Simmons said would create business opportunities for local enterprises and attract international investment.

The government is inviting the public to submit feedback on the proposed Medicinal Cannabis Bill and corresponding Medicinal Cannabis Licensing Regulations.

The proposed law and regulations were released together, giving the small country an advantage over competing jurisdictions that sometimes see a lag between a law’s approval and when required regulations are introduced.

In a statement, Simmons said the government of the British Overseas Territory will “review and analyze” the feedback before the bill and regulations are introduced in the Legislature.
