Cabinet Deferes Referendum Bill

Cabinet announced this morning that the referendum on the legalization of cannabis will be deferred until further notice. In its brief, Cabinet said that the Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister responsible for Religious Affairs reported to Cabinet about their successful meeting with church leaders during which they discussed the matter of holding a referendum on the legalization of cannabis. After learning of the outcome of the meeting, Cabinet accepted the recommendation to defer the referendum until further notice and to make the necessary amendments to the Cannabis legislation to ensure that the bill will only be enacted into law after the holding of the referendum. Cabinet also announced today that it was briefed by the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Health and Wellness on the very serious public concerns raised in respect of the proposed Social Security Board (SSB) loan to Pharmacy Express Limited. Cabinet says it fully respects the autonomy of the SSB but supports the importance and necessity of ensuring that all relevant information regarding Pharmacy Express Limited is shared with SSB before a final decision is made in respect of the loan. Cabinet understands that SSB funds are the people’s money and should always be subject to the highest levels of care, scrutiny, transparency, and management.
