Cannabis in Saint Lucia is illegal. Cannabis is the only drug grown locally on Saint Lucia, and meets 20% of the local demand, with the remainder coming from the other Caribbean island, predominantly Jamaica and St vincent, and more developed countries such as the United States. Also, a significant portion is shipped in from countries in south America such as Columbia and Venezuela. [1]
