Thursday 11th October, 2018-Cabinet will convene a virtual meeting next week with Whoopi Goldberg, the American actress, talk show host and comedienne, who will talk about cannabis with the government.
Goldberg is lending more than her name to a company that is involved with medical marijuana, and will join the meeting via Skype next Wednesday.
According to their website, Whoopi & Maya was launched in 2016 by Whoopi Goldberg and award-winning edibles maker Maya Elisabeth, founder of Om Edibles and winner of ten High Times Cannabis Cup awards. The California-based medical marijuana company’s initial offerings included a signature line of herbal medical cannabis products, formulated to provide relief for women experiencing menstrual cramps and discomfort. One year later, Whoopi & Maya products are available in over 300 dispensaries, becoming one of the fastest growing brands in California.
Meantime, government says it is going through every proposal in detail, reiterating that Antigua and Barbudua will take advantage of the opportunities, which will be made possible by the industry that is still emerging. But they are ensuring that legislation and the like will be in place before the country begins benefitting from the cannabis industry.
