Seven Day Adventist Pastor, Clive Dottin

Seven Day Adventist Pastor, Clive Dottin, says legalizing marijuana is not a solution to help deal with crime in Trinidad and Tobago.

Last Tuesday, Chief Justice, Ivor Archie, said the state should reconsider its position on charging persons who are arrested with small quantities of marijuana.

Pastor Dottin said if the Government legalizes marijuana they would open the door for other drugs to be legalized as most drugs are mixed.

He added if Government wanted to deal with the back log of cases in the courts they should implement more creative measures.
