(Barbados Today) Potential investors eager to take a bite out of the budding medical cannabis industry are one step closer to doing so in Barbados.

Though he did not give details of the planned authority, Marshall insisted that Barbados was not late in entering the growing industry since it was best to get it “right” than to hurry and get it wrong.

“I don’t think we are coming to the dining table too late,” Marshall told journalists at the annual general meeting of the Barbados Association of Journalists and Media Workers (BARJAM) held at the Argentine Embassy.

“I think we are getting where we need to be. So by the 30th we will have the authority up and we will be able to start issuing licences to people who bring in applications,” Marshall announced.
