When most people think of smoking ganja in the Caribbean, Jamaica immediately springs to mind. However, the sunny vacation destination now faces some stiff competition for cannabis tourism and foreign investment from Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG).
A southern Caribbean nation, comprising the main island, St. Vincent, and a chain of smaller islands, SVG is a member of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS). The tiny islands are the first OECS members to decriminalize cannabis for medical purposes and scientific research. Fifteen nations in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) organization also place marijuana decriminalization high on its agenda.
