420- International Day of Cannabis

Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne says the prohibition of cannabis less than 100 years ago, was prompted not by altruistic motives or concern for the health or well-being of users, but to serve “the racist, political and economic interests’ of the then global powers.

Caribbean: Antigua to allow marijuana for personal use and medicine

By Bert Wilkinson – Caribbean Life News. NY – April 11, 2018

Just weeks after its parliament had overwhelmingly approved laws allowing for Antiguans to personally possess up to 15 grams of marijuana legally, authorities are preparing to take it to the next level.

In the coming months, island legislators will again be asked to debate a bill allowing for large scale medical marijuana production-meaning that approved locals will be allowed to grow, harvest, process and sell varying amounts of weed for medicinal use. Continue reading

Haitians Want No Charity, Prefer Freedom from Fake Humanitarian NGOs

Haitians Want No Charity, Prefer World Freeing Them from Fake Humanitarian NGOs

Haiti was struck by a manufactured disaster back on 12 January 2011 to pave the way for US ground invasion, NGO exploitation, and the corporate systematic plunder of its natural resources including gold. Of the billions that the concerned people of the world gave to Red Cross, the humanitarian agency was only able to build 7 houses for the Haitians.

No sources of potable water were ever developed out of the $13 billion raised by the Clinton Global Initiative either. Indeed, the Clintons have adapted themselves well from their Vatican masters, who themselves have the habit of sucking in most of what goes into their own Red Cross, of course.

Tourism Matters: Welcoming Locals for ‘Staycations’ – By Adrian Loveridge

Commentary: Tourism Matters: Welcoming Locals for ‘Staycations’

– By Adrian Loveridge – Barbados

With the recent reminder by Hugh Riley, the secretary general of the Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO) that on average around 30 percent of the entire regional hotel room stock is empty at any given time of the year, it is perhaps even more surprising that greater emphasis is currently not being placed promoting the much heralded ‘Staycation initiative’.

As we enter the long, soft summer period, surely our hoteliers can see the value of filling otherwise empty rooms, even if they cannot command those hefty rates extracted in the winter peak period?       Continue reading
