Medicinal marijuana has been allegedly produced by some residents from Delainavesi and they’re calling on the government to relook at the laws on marijuana in the country.

Delanavesi resident Marika Vakatubukawa, while speaking in the i-Taukei language during the public consultation on the establishment of a medicinal cannabis industry in Fiji at Epworth Hall in Suva, claims he has been helping women who are suffering from cancer to use marijuana for the past years, and he has been advocating for this since 2018.

He claims that marijuana can cure many diseases, but the law is limiting its usefulness.

He also suggested that the government should allow people to farm marijuana at their homes for medicinal use.
