CARICOM Summit to Discuss Creation of Marijuana Commission

SAN JUAN – The Caribbean Community announced Thursday an agenda for discussions at its 36th annual summit, scheduled for Feb. 26-27 in The Bahamas, that includes creation of a marijuana commission and seeking reparations for slavery.

Leaders will also talk about the establishment of a Committee of Ambassadors and review the pay and pensions of judges on the Caribbean Court of Justice, the current CARICOM chair, Bahamian Prime Minister Perry Christie, said in a statement.

“The Community continues to work together to improve standards of living and work of our people; the full employment of labor and other factors of production; accelerated, coordinated and sustained economic development and convergence; expansion of trade and economic relations with third States,” Christie said.

“As for The Bahamas, I have placed on the agenda of the upcoming meetings for general discussion, the need to leverage CARICOM’s human, cultural and natural assets for the economic development of the community,” he added.

CARICOM comprises Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago.
