Marijuana should decriminalised in Trinidad and Tobago by mid-2019. Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley made the revelation while speaking with reporters. His comments come after Attorney General Faris Al Rawi said legislation on the decriminalisation of marijuana will be laid in Parliament in the first half of 2019. “We expect that by May to June of 2019, the decriminalisation would have been affected.” The Prime Minister further stressed that decriminalisation does not mean legalisation: “There is a big difference between decriminalisation and legalisation of marijuana. We have committed to decriminalisation. What we are working on now is the method by which and what that represents in terms of the use.”
