Monday, April 28, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: From the time when he was Minister of Police and Public Safety, Douglas Singh has led the charge to a consideration of decriminalizing the possession of small amounts of marijuana.

He said today that the effort is moving forward, but it will have to do so without him as he is now quite busy.

According to Singh the committee is gathering information from interested parties including the trade unions.

Singh says Belize hopes to beat Jamaica to the punch on the decriminalization issue by the end of the year.

    I did not relize that Belize has not moved forward toward legalizing or decrimanalisation of marijuana. the state of Arizona,USA brings millions of dollars to the State. Licensing,pharmacies and the infra=structure means jobs and extra revenue that would be going on the black market{no taxes or revenue} is now regulated and controlled by Arizona not some criminal organisation. Way better for goverment and public safety. It also frees up space for the really bad guys ( jail or prison). Watch those “Twinkies” arouind stonerssnacks are never safe around that bunch.
