  1. The government decriminalization of Marijuana is more like legalization. Gastón to secure a few votes from the Rasta community you have destroyed an entire generation of this nation youth. We now have people walking around with spliffs in mouth even in St. John .
    Speak to the police and they will tell you about the behavior of our school children. Where the leaders have no vision the people perish.
