The conference featured the party’s deputy leader, Hensley Daniel; the NRP leader, the Honourable Joseph Parry; NRP’s senator, the Hon. Carlisle Powell, and Dr. Kelvin Daley.

The talks opened with prior examples of bills the NRP passed, such as allowing pregnant women to continue their education, as evidence of their ability to get new laws into place on the island. Then, each speaker explained benefits they saw in the legalization of cannabis.

“We have to do this now,” Daniel said. “When you see Canada moving in the direction of complete legalization, when you see Europe trading marijuana stocks, and when you see the resources and the money being made, we cannot sleepwalk in Nevis and miss this moment in history.”
