Long term studies on drug use needed

January 19, 2023

As Barbados pushes to advance its medicinal cannabis industry, there’s a call for authorities to commit to longitudinal studies on drug use.

It’s coming from Manager of the National Council on Substance Abuse, Betty Hunte.

Ms. Hunte also wants employers to make provisions to offer support to employees negatively affected by drug use.
