Bermuda to increase limit on MMJ import

Bermuda will allow patients to import up to 2,000 grams of medical cannabis per year in order to treat a number of conditions.

The Supreme Court of Bermuda ruled in favour of allowing the medical use of cannabis in November 2016. However, a limit of just 1 gram per year has forced sick Bermudans to turn to the black market to purchase the marijuana they need.

That limit has now shot up by 2,000%. The Bermudan government is in the process of appointing a commercial importer to oversee a more regulated distribution scheme.

The island nation is planning to introduce legislation that would regulate both recreational and medical marijuana in May. In the interim, individual patients can apply to import their own cannabis, and the new limits make that a much more realistic prospect.
