Pastor Dr. Hensworth W.C. Jonas has called for the repeal of the law decriminalizing small amounts of cannabis, citing concerns for the welfare of Antigua and Barbuda’s youth.

The current Cannabis Act permits each household to grow up to four plants and individuals to possess up to 15 grams for personal use.

At the launch of his book, Radical Discipleship, Dr. Jonas highlighted the challenges in regulating cannabis use. In response, the government has begun a study to evaluate the impacts of the legislative change.
