Cannabis in Saint Lucia

Cannabis in Saint Lucia is illegal. Cannabis is the only drug grown locally on the island, and meets 20% of the local demand, with the remainder coming from Saint Vincent.[1]

Decriminalization[edit]

In March 2019, Prime Minister Allen Chastanet told a local newspaper that the country would be moving towards decriminalizing cannabis.[2]
