Medical Marijuana Framework Coming for Barbados, But Referendum to be Held on Recreational Use of the Drug

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Monday December 10, 2018 – Before Christmas, Barbados should have a framework for medical cannabis in place. However, freeing up the recreational use of the drug will have to be decided by referendum.
