  1. The Coalition government needs to change the marijuana laws in Guyana to at least reflect the current situation in Jamaica. Filling the jails with young men for possession of small quantities of marijuana does not solve any problems, creates criminal records, and could destroy lives. This in a country where the most abused drug is alcohol.
