NGO to Test Trinidad and Tobago Drug Law by Importing Marijuana Seeds

SAN JUAN – Activist group C420 is preparing to import cannabis seeds to test a Trinidad and Tobago law that theoretically authorizes marijuana cultivation, the NGO’s director told EFE in a telephone interview.

“Our intention is to test the law because not everything is defined,” Colin Stephenson said of the 1991 Dangerous Drugs Act.

The law permits the issuance of licenses for the cultivation, distribution and sale of marijuana, but does not establish specific limits or standards of supervision.

Stephenson said the law doesn’t regulate the types of marijuana plants to be imported or used for consumption.

In response, C420 is seeking to import marijuana seeds from Amsterdam “as soon as possible.”

C420 aims to use the seeds to meet the needs of entities and citizens who had sought licenses to use marijuana for medicinal purposes.

“The law doesn’t differentiate who can apply (for the licenses),” Stephenson said.

Founded in 2014, C420 aims to achieve a reform of marijuana laws in Trinidad and Tobago through public education and political advocacy.

The NGO also seeks to “re-invigorate the agricultural sector” by promoting cannabis cultivation, which is seen as of great economic potential for the country and the Caribbean region.
