Saipan Mayor David M. Apatang has introduced a resolution that encourages Guam to exchange information with the CNMI on the recreational and medicinal use of marijuana to assist in the ongoing debate.
Guam legalized medicinal marijuana use in 2014. The CNMI is currently thinking of doing the same here.
Apatang introduced the resolution at the 24th general assembly of the Association of Mariana Island Mayors, requesting Guam Gov. Edward Calvo and CNMI Gov. Ralph DLG Torres to share information on marijuana use.
Apatang said the CNMI government should at least obtain Guam’s numbers on marijuana use. “We want some data on how it affects Guam and how they go about these things,” he said.
AMIM unanimously adopted the resolution on Nov. 30 and it has been submitted to both Torres and Calvo.
The resolution encourages Calvo and Torres to share information on establishing an agency or department that is responsible for monitoring, controlling, enforcing, and administering marijuana laws and regulations.
