Castries Mayor, Peterson Francis, reiterated his position Thursday against the legalising or decriminalising of marijuana.
“I have said it publicly and I will say it again, I am not a supporter of legalising marijuana or decriminalising marijuana,” he told reporters at a news conference Thursday when the issue was raised.
Francis declared that he has his own personal views on the matter.
“We cannot even cope with the regular diseases that we have. We do not know what that is going to bring. We cannot cope with alcoholism,” he asserted.
“We can’t cope. Everyday you’re hearing about the health sector,” he noted.
“Have we studied what could happen with marijuana? Have we studied that?Do you know what the effect is going to be?” He asked.
