PLP Accuses OBA and Independent Senators of Causing Cannabis Reform Delay

 

Today, the OBA and the Independent Senators voted against the will of the Bermudian voter and stood against jobs and opportunities for Bermudians.

The cannabis reform they opposed would have further reduced the criminalization of Bermudians and created jobs and opportunities for Bermudians. 

Now, Bermudians are forced to wait for entrepreneurial opportunities in agriculture, transport, research, manufacturing, and the creation of health products and consumables.
The Cannabis Reform Bill was rejected by the OBA, and the Governor's Senators would have meant additional revenue for the government; revenue for social programs, scholarships, and more.

It is unfortunate, that in the 21st Century that jobs and opportunities as well as the will of so many Bermudians can be blocked by a politically rejected Opposition and Independent Senators appointed by an unelected, unaccountable Governor.
