The Malta Chamber President, Marisa Xuereb, together with CEO Dr Marthese Portelli and Media and Communication Strategist Rachel Attard met Mariella Dimech, Executive Chairperson of the Cannabis Authority, earlier today.
During this meeting The Malta Chamber highlighted the following:
• the lack of necessary safeguards in the current legal system to mitigate the potential negative social and economic impact brought about by use of cannabis
• the lack of explicit clarity with respect to employer’s right to take measures to ensure a drug free work environment as well as to ensure health and safety standards
• concern on the legalisation of recreational cannabis products without having catered for the legal and safe supply of cannabis seeds and products through a well-regulated market which ensures that cannabis products are free of harmful substances
The Malta Chamber notes Chairperson Dimech’s commitment to consult with it on a regular basis.
