The Antigua and Barbuda Medical Cannabis Authority is already busy receiving applications.


Solicitor General Martin Camacho says there is a process that must be followed.



“There is going to be a lot of work which is required by the authority, they’re going to have a registration, they’re going to have the applications to be submitted, the inspection of premises, there is a need for a system for monitoring businesses, so quite a bit have to be done to get the authority up to its full speed.”


Meanwhile, representative of the Rastafari Community King Franki Francis says the cabinet has considered a number of proposals both local and foreign.


“There are two proposals that have come to the board, the Cabinet has also received a number of applications from people, some locally based and some overseas-based.”


The medical cannabis authority came into existence after a bill was tabled and passed in the Parliament.


The board was recently established and it is headed by Solicitor General Martin Comacho.
