ten states, in the United States of America, have so far legalized marijuana for recreational use for adults over 21. 33 states have legalized medical marijuana. A just-released United States State Department report says marijuana is the drug of choice in Saint Lucia and other Eastern Caribbean Islands of Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. The Former Chairman of the Iyanola Council for the Advancement of Rastafari and member of the Cannabis Movement in Saint Lucia, Aaron Alexander, has taken issue with the statement calling it hypocritical.

He took issue with the report indicating that cannabis being classified in the same bracket as drugs. The report further stated that according to the 2018 International Narcotics Control Strategy Report almost all countries in the sub-region have cited  growing traffic from Colombia of a form of cannabis with elevated THC levels known locally as “creepy.”
