The Cannabis Task Force chaired by Commerce Minister Hon. Emma Hippolyte is gearing up to host its first symposium as a means of public engagement.
Public Relations Officer, Verne Emanuel, said the symposium will commence with a presentation on the proposed Cannabis Regulatory Framework.
He explained: “The symposium runs from Thursday to Sunday with a series of activities starting with a press briefing followed by the main symposium from 2 p.m. on Thursday, October 20, and then an informal dialogue under Chatham House Rules on Friday into Saturday with a closing activity on Saturday evening into Sunday.”
Hon. Emma Hippolyte provided insight into the symposium’s programme.
“We have a presentation from Mr. Martin Jelsma and he is going to speak on the Trans- National Institute—Who We Are and What We Are Fighting For. The second presentation is from our own Dr. Stephen King and he is going to speak on Cannabis in Mainstream Medicine. The third presentation is from Andre de Cardes and he is going to speak on Cannabis—the Industrial Elephant in the Room,” she said.
Other presentations will include the Science and Standards Behind the Cannabis Plant, an Overview of Jamaica’s Cannabis Experience and Legal Cannabis in the United States.
Interested participants are asked to register using the link provided on the social media pages of the Government of Saint Lucia. Participants are welcomed via Zoom or at the Financial Administrative Building.

Allow this special and 100% natural healing plant medicine to be legalized to bring another scale of resources and discipline to the youth and St Lucias economy in general!.
Hurry up nuh.
Let the prophets and politicians say puff it, peace and prosperity. The Almighty shall laugh.
Another pipe dream. “Opiate of the masses”. Keep them high… whatever it takes… sex, drugs, music. Use them all to embellish the absolute ineptitude of our so-called leaders, who have absolutely no ideas on how 2 lead us out of the enduring economic and social anguish that we are living in.
So marijuana is our new messiah. What a very sick joke!
Marijuana Is a billion dollar industry
Emma wants to be the first to have a ganja farm although she is already a millionaire living off tax payers money
Porn is also a multi-billion dollar industry. Let us also do that too then. Sell the minds and souls of our children, our families and friends 4 the Almighty Dollar.
What comparative advantage do we have to even secure a fraction of the new green gold?? Nada!! When u think of our little to no scale economies… do you all really think that we can even begin to compete with the likes of the USA and Canada… even Jamaica and St. Vincent??? WAKE UP MY PEOPLE… FROM YOUR WEED-INDUCED COMA. We stand a better chance with bananas… imagine that… LOL!!
Come on Saint Lucians… we are too creative a people to just mindlessly follow what everyone else is doing. We have a unique culture and personality… in our land, our people, and our light that only us can offer to the world. Let us focus on harnessing this unique power… and stop lapping up the economic scraps that fall from tables, which were not set 4 us.
