Guam - Senator Tina Muna Barnes says Resolution 201 has been referred to her committee and now hopes to start roundtable discussions with all stakeholders and community members. Resolution 201 was introduced over a week ago and calls for the decriminalization of cannabis so that local law enforcement can focus more resources on the increase in violent crimes.

"And I'm very hopeful that the people will come out because this is a resolution, this is not a bill, this is a resolution to ignite this discussion as it is being discussed in a lot of places in the states and our neighboring islands, so I'm hoping with this discussion moving forward that we can get a lot of the ideas that come to the table," she said.

Senator Muna Barnes says nothing has been set yet, but is still open to meeting with Guam Police Department chief Fred Bordallo to further discuss the resolution.
