A Bahamas committee charged with laying out an economic recovery plan has recommended the country legalize marijuana for recreational, religious, and medical use. The Economic Recovery Committee (ERC) called for the establishment of a regulatory body to oversee the authorization and enforcement for businesses engaged in the production, wholesale, and retail of a cannabis industry. Addressing the House of Assembly, Minnis called the country’s cannabis laws “outdated,” and said they need to be changed. Minnis said the government will not accept all of the committee’s recommendations, but the prime minister did not specify which would not be considered.
