U.S. Virgin Islands. Gov. Albert Bryan Jr. has given a new medical marijuana law his stamp of approval, making the territory the latest Caribbean jurisdiction to open its doors to cannabis businesses and potential new tourism opportunities.

The move has been years in the making, with voters having favored medical cannabis in a 2014 referendum.

In addition to the U.S. Virgin Islands, other U.S. territories that have approved MMJ include Guam and Puerto Rico.

An Office of Cannabis Regulation (OCR) will be established within the U.S. Virgin Islands’ Department of Licensing and Consumer Affair.
