2019-2020 Improvements and Recommendations for the Virgin Islands

Since the Governor's signing of the Medicinal Cannabis Care Act in 2019, the USVI has been slow to develop regulations that will govern the operation of the territory's new medical cannabis marketplace under the law. One year after signing the Medicinal Cannabis Care Act, Governor Bryan still has yet to fill out the Cannabis Advisory Board's (VICAB) nine member roster. To date, only seven of the nine regulators have been named and one has already withdrawn. No regulatory activity can commence until these board members are assigned.
