NASSAU, BAHAMAS – The local Rastafarian community once again calling on the government to protect their religious sacraments and promote human rights for all.

High priest for the Rastafarian community in The Bahamas, Rithmond McKinney, says it’s not just about Rastafarian rights, but rights for all humanity.

One of these sacraments involves the use of marijuana for medicinal, ceremonial, and recreational purposes. 

This year, the community has been pushing for parliament to take steps towards the legalization of marijuana.

McKinney says they have been involved in conversations with government and are pleased with progress made so far.

However, they patiently continue to wait.

In early December, Attorney General Ryan Pinder revealed the Davis administration would not be presenting the promised marijuana legislation before the end of the year, adding the government is still working on it.
