      Unless the government is benefiting from it, it is deemed illegal in the courts of law.

    It's a tragedy when Police quick to destroy a natural healing herb while some of their uniform members are dealing with the white poison. To bad the Territory needs approval from U.K. to legalize what Canada, USA and other Countries are capitaluzing on.

    VIP Government has picked up just where NDP left off ; Moving in the WRONG direction . What amazes me is to see All the talk about (born here) and Educated "they" still forgetting that BVI people are NOT backwards . There are a FEW greedy ones who only think about their selves and their families BUT these Virgin Islands were built on the SWEAT and SKILLS of our Caribbean brothers and sisters WHO have contributed greatly and some have " no where" to go as HERE has become their home . So it hurts when Caribbean people are TAXED DOUBLED for "time" payed below minimum wages and now ALL the stipulations for WORK PERMIT renewals . GROSSLY UNFAIR from a set of Educated people who claim that care ------ I weep for my Country as we were fore warned ; if we are not careful WE will be Policed by others ----- " the inquiry has started " What's next ? Policing ?

    The father going take care of all y'all that doing the devil's work. Leave the plant alone!!!!
    (Police) Stop following the evil doers that only want it when it benefits them in terms of money. The pills your doctor gives you does more harm to your body that any strain of marijuana. There is no morality in your actions. May the most high have mercy on your souls for blindly following the white man agenda.

      Yet a Bible quote regarding the benefits of the herbs is used by persons like your to support personal use. But it's fraud. Interesting.

    Same way you could lose your life for having a book in your possession now massa wants to make sure you remain asleep. Its an offense to use a plant that makes you think. It's a threat to the white supremacy system. It cannot be allowed.

    This falls on all in a position of political authority UK US NDP VIP UN

    These discriminatory laws go against the findings of modern science and are based upon racist lies. These lies and actions based upon them are the highest form of corruption, and outright propaganda.

    Put down all ideas of owning and restricting what your people have been persecuted for do not aim to lord over people with this plant that should be free to plant, and use according to genesis as a Christian community. That is emancipation. Access to a healing herb bearing seed should not depend on your economic situation.

    The science is sound all actors please stop the charades similar to slavery it places the integrity of the whole establishment in doubt, how can we trust authority with a vaccine when it’s plain to see grown educated folk including the police persisting in lies and continue playing the role of oppressor

    Anyone sick of controlling and punishing good people?? Anything for a dollar? That is why people don’t trust police or want to join the force.

    While these unjust laws are in place many people refuse to be a part of the problem.

    No respect for religious freedom when it comes to this plant many consider scared. That is wrong.

    Instead of keeping us safe from the boogie man these policies created more criminals, and turned us against each other.

    Ignorance. Fix it.

    Do these people who are the government follow the bible? Didn't the bible say God said the herbs that were created were good? but if so why have people been harras by police, imprison, etc. This is the same government pass in the HOA the marijuana act because they themselves seen money gain and profit that would boost their revenue, so its evidence this government isn't about righteousness

    Well Uk representative did not sign to make it legal so that not even the Government can benefit from it. Instead of prosecuting your Government with the Governor have a discussion with him about the herb. Make up y'all mind which direction you taking.. Liberation or further colonization.
