US Virgin Islands To Call Lawmakers To Special Session To Discuss Adult Use Cannabis

Daily Deals

The governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) is calling the legislature into special session this month to consider adult-use marijuana legalization.

MM write

If the measure proposed by Gov. Albert Bryan Jr. (D) is adopted, USVI would become the third U.S. territory to legalize cannabis, following Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

“This amendment creates a regulated system, enables tourists and increases tax revenue to the government of the Virgin Islands,” Bryan said at a press conference, calling marijuana “a new revolution that has taken the nation by storm.”

The legislature will consider the amendment as an addition to the territory’s current medical cannabis program on December 18. Bryan signed that existing policy into law earlier this year, though it hasn’t yet been implemented as regulatory body nominations have been held up in the legislature.
