The Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda says it will have the honour, next Wednesday, October 17, 2018, to listen to a presentation by well-known comedian and actress Whoopi Goldberg.

The government says she is lending more than her name to a company that is involved with medical marijuana. Goldberg will join the meeting by Skype when next Cabinet convenes.

The exact nature of her interest in Antigua and Barbuda is not yet known, however, Goldberg has a well-known medical cannabis business partnership.

According to its website, Whoopi & Maya was launched in 2016 by Whoopi Goldberg and award-winning edibles maker Maya Elisabeth, founder of Om Edibles and winner of ten High Times Cannabis Cup awards.

The California-based medical marijuana company’s initial offerings included a signature line of herbal medical cannabis products, formulated to provide relief for women experiencing menstrual cramps and discomfort. One year later, Whoopi & Maya products are available in over 300 dispensaries, becoming one of the fastest growing brands in California.

The government says although Jamaica has been involved in medical marijuana for about two years, many firms show an interest in Antigua “because of the small size and the social cohesion which the Antiguan society demonstrates.”

The firms are of the view that the production, harvesting and processing can be done correctly from the very beginning in Antigua.

  1. I wonder what what she will be saying the the local community have not said.

    Then you will hear Whoopie said it as if it is some kind of gospel.

    As Paddy Simon say it’s not what you say but a who say it

  2. Whoopi Goldberg is just another agent and one of the system’s greatest assets. She will be speaking on Marijuana but only as part of a greater, more desired agenda. These celebrities are not in control of themselves and we need to stop being so gullible.

  3. Better Whoopi, a World famous Black woman, drawing positive attention to Antigua than other unsavoury types. Support Whoopi’s efforts and exposure.

    • For all the years we supported her is this her best contribution to us? Nothing for the youth and oppressed? Better than nothing mentality syndrome.

      Exploitation the crows
      are circling.
      I come in peace, I look like you, I am a movie star, IAM famous, just like back in the day when they leave they will have all our landa and money.

  4. Whoopi will play an active role in the project and is in it for the long term. She’s honored to partner with the people of Antigua and looking forward to discussing goals moving forward!
