barbados flagGovernment has officially passed legislation to allow the local Rastafarian community to use cannabis, however, those seeking to take advantage of the new Act will have to satisfy a number of provisions first. The Sacramental Cannabis Act 2019 was approved during a sitting in the House of Parliament with 15 clauses outlining how Rastas are to gain access to, use and handle the plant. The AG told the House the aim was to keep the Bill as simple as possible, recognizing that too many restrictions would be to the detriment of those in the faith but at the same time give these one certain freedoms.
