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.
