No local medical marijuana shortage says CLA

February 05, 2021

The Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA) has rejected recent reports in the media of a ganja shortage on the island.

The CLA says it is not aware of any shortage affecting the local regulated medical cannabis industry.

According to Senior Director of Operations (acting), Faith Graham, the Authority routinely monitors ganja inventory of licensees through the Enforcement and Monitoring Section, and there is no evidence to indicate a shortage of ganja within the regulated space.

"There has been no such report from CLA licensees and checks made with licensees have confirmed that there is no shortage,”said Graham. 

The CLA has sought to assure the public that there is no need for concern as it relates to the availability of cannabis for patients, i.e. for medical, scientific and therapeutic purposes.
