They can't even figure out medical marijuana, how are they going to tax recreational?

😊

It's ironic.

No cure for the disease, just look the other way to avoid fixing bad decisions of the past which senators legislated and passed to continue to line their pockets.

Another fux that's going to line certain pockets while wasting money that could be well used if anyone in our VI Government had any ethics, principles, morals dedication and honor.

Chuups, Bah, Humbug and Frig!

I don’t know what the answer is in regards to recreational use, but I do know how hard it is to find level headed people who are willing to work eight hours a day, five days a week in the VI.

Food for thought... Cannabis has been proven to reduce a persons desire to do much of anything.

But it’s good to know, according to the attached article in The Source, our governor is consulting with “Rastafarian Representatives” before making any major decisions.

Only in the VI.

I see it as a ploy by Governor Bryan to deflect attention away from the fact that he supports a WAPA rate increase. And, since his administration has done basically nothing notable since elected, he needs something major to say he accomplished before the next election.

The reality is, with GERS already losing $10 million a MONTH, an extra $20 million a YEAR (if it amounts to that) isn't going to do much of anything to save GERS from its inevitable collapse. What it will do is delay the collapse until he's out of office.

No Governor wants to be the one holding the hot potato when GERS collapses.

Its going to be chaos in the VI when it ultimately does. 

Just my opinion.
