Re: Grenada Marijuana Laws

Maybe it will list the result?

But there is no indication of the running vote balance or if there is to a display of the outcome, or the time frame it is to cover.

Re: Grenada Marijuana Laws

Man the thing should be legal.  Have folks like you grow the thing and sell to Americans and Canadians.  I am sure that the thing grown in Grenada, will be more potent, than what grows up here in Green houses.

Taste tomatoes that are grown in Green houses in America and then taste those that are grown in your back yard.  The taste is so damn different.

Re: Grenada Marijuana Laws

Well, I joined in at 44 minutes into the program. Plus contributing to the survey.

I enjoyed the program, and I did understand the comment where a contributor suggested there should be some debate rather than just a one sided point of view. But also the statement that reducing Tabay made programs run smoother.

Considering how much the population in general likes to get the colonial heel from the back of their necks, you might think ridding themselves from colonial manipulation would speed up the legalisation change...

I would only say not having the last minute post here might have notified more people that the discussion was going to take place?

Re: Grenada Marijuana Laws

Selling to America, will take some work.  There is so much damn money in this thing it is crazy.  Folks are lining up to be a grower or seller.  As it is about to be legal in Maryland, for limited purposes, black folk in government are complaining, that none one license was given to black folk.

Not sure, if the government of Grenada will be able to penetrate the American market.  They might need to hire someone like RD, with inside connection.

Well, most republican in power thinks weed should be illegal. The AG has signaled, he will go after all states that made it legal.

The exportation of marijuana in Grenada and Jamaica could push money into our economy. We should have laws in our countries that would regulate how we use it. If we are as permissive as the USA and Europe, we could easily devastate our youths. We should be in it for the money and not for morals. We should enforce the moral code at our end. We don't want lazy pot-heads, lying on street corners smoking the stuff. We need the money that the herb will bring to educate and build our tiny island nations.

"We don't want lazy pot-heads, lying on street corners smoking the stuff."

Personal bias coming through here? Couldn't tell when was the last time I saw lazy pot-heads, lying all over the streets, smoking the stuff. I've seen lots and lots of ordinary people, sitting in their homes or on the corner, having a smoke and chilling out after a hard day's work.

What's the difference between lazy pot-heads and lazy drunkards? Simple: lazy pot-heads don't drive drunk, don't get into stupid fights and don't vomit all over the road in a stupor. Take the middle-class blinkers from your eyes.

I think you have the donkey following the cart on this one.

Firstly there SHOULD be laws with regard to usage.

Primarily that NO one smokes or uses under 16 years at least. Just the same as ... I hope... there are already laws against juveniles smoking tobacco.

Then and this is the cart bit,  The reason you might see indolent youth is not because they are specifically drinking or smoking, it is because there is very little work for them in the first place. Probably 95% of that youth would be missing from the corner if they had work to do worth the effort.

Neither the USA or most parts of Europe are THAT permissive, and America has built a prison service on locking up those caught in the web of small time using.

Please bare in mind the imposition of Marijuana laws were introduced not because they were dangerous drugs, but because in America it was the Mexican immigrants at the beginning of the last century who were culturally using it, and America wanted a way to get rid of Mexicans. Plus they said it would make the Black man a dangerous fiend.... All propaganda.

In the UK I believe it was originally implemented in India... again as a means of control.... nothing to do with the affects of the drug.

I smoked a few joints when I was 17. I have done nothing since, and I was 23 when I stopped smoking altogether, and I never migrated to hard, soft or middling drugs.

I saw and encountered lazy potheads and druggies in Grenada when I was there years ago. My guide had to threaten to beat them up whenever they came to hassle me.  They were addicts, jobless and uneducated. I do not have on middle-class blinkers over my eyes. I travel with the eyes of a journalist, documenting truth-- which by the way, could be damned offensive.
