The gov has been advised to liberalise our cannabis laws to boost tourism.

It is one of the recommendations made by KPMG that didn’t make it into the gov’s summary of its draft economic strategy.

Exploring areas of growth, KPMG looked at tourism and recommendation that the island could be developed as a ‘location for cannabis-based tourism from neighbouring jurisdictions’.

KPMG added: ‘While recreational use of cannabis in the UK and Ireland remains illegal, liberalisation of the law on the island would attract visitors.’

However, that recommendation has not found its way into the government’s 44 page summary of its strategy.
