The governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) is calling the legislature into specific session this month to contemplate adult-use marijuana legalization.
If the measure proposed by Gov. Albert Bryan Jr. (D) is adopted, USVI would come to be the third U.S. territory to legalize cannabis, following Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
“This amendment creates a regulated program, enables vacationers and increases tax income to the government of the Virgin Islands,” Bryan stated at a press conference, calling marijuana “a new revolution that has taken the nation by storm.”
The legislature will contemplate the amendment as an addition to the territory’s existing health-related cannabis plan on December 18. Bryan signed that current policy into law earlier this year, even though it hasn’t but been implemented as regulatory physique nominations have been held up in the legislature.
