Antigua and Barbuda will allow the use of medical cannabis, Prime Minister Gaston Browne has announced, in addition to decriminalising the possession of small amounts of the drug.

In explaining the move Mr Browne said that that the prohibition of cannabis was not prompted by the health or well-being of users, but to serve the 'racist, political and economic interests of the global powers at that time'.

The Prime Minister said his government's plans to legalise cannabis for medicinal and 'other' uses.
