Cannabis in Montserrat

Cannabis in Montserrat, the British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean Leeward Islands, is illegal under British law.

In 1994, Montserrat seized 3kg of cannabis and destroyed 240,600 cannabis plants.[1]

Montserrat has no drug testing facilities, neither in its prison nor in civil society, but use of Class A drugs is minimal, with the island's drug issues largely confined to cannabis.[2]
