Virgin Island Greens call for end of criminalization of marijuana

The Green Party of the US Virgin Islands has worked diligently for the last 3 years advocating for the full legalization and end to prohibition of Cannabis in the Virgin Islands. Decades of a failed prohibition on marijuana have resulted in exorbitant costs for prosecution and incarceration, targeting disproportionately, the youth and people of color. The criminalization of marijuana is driving massive increases in violent crime and does nothing to decrease access to our youth.
