Change of Date for Discussion

AS part of its ongoing effort to stimulate public discourse on topics of importance to the wider community, The UWI Open Campus Saint Lucia presents “Legalise It? Towards a National Policy on Marijuana Use in Saint Lucia”.

Due to a clash with the 2016 Independence Lecture the event will now take place next Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. at the Open Campus Saint Lucia site on Morne Fortune.

Led by herbalist and integrative health specialist, Dr.Gilbertha St. Rose, the event will take the form of an interactive panel discussion on the critical need for a National Policy to be put in place to guide marijuana use in Saint Lucia.

Dr. St. Rose will be joined by Dr. Stephen King, Dr. Marcus Day and Dr. Lisa Charles each with their own unique focus, but all desirous of seeing a rational / legally endorsed solution to the often highly emotional and ill-informed issue of marijuana use in St. Lucia.

The public is invited to attend and join in the discussion!

  1. Question. Why is it that we the smaller countries always allow other developed nations to make decisions for us. When can’t we take off the invisible shackles and become decision makers, leaders and not followers, thinkers and not bystanders. This topic is only being taken up because another bigger nation said it is okay. Why can’t we decide for once and make our own decisions. That yo me is freedom. Doing what one thinks is right and not simply following the popular trend.
