‘Yes’ to ganja
FOR THE VERY first time, a majority of Barbadians support either the decriminalisation, or legislation of marijuana.
A CADRES poll in 2008 found that the majority of Barbadians (73%), wanted marijuana to remain illegal, but now nine years later, public sentiment has changed and 52 per cent support either decriminalisation or legislation.
The latest poll was conducted between Friday, June 16 and Monday, June 19.
These findings reflect the situation in three other Caribbean countries – St Vincent, Antigua and Dominica – where CARDES has been tracking the issue and where a majority supports at least decriminalisation. (ES)
