The laid back attitude of some Barbadians about the decriminalization of marijuana is causing concern for at least one social outreach organisation.

Director of the Centre for Counselling Addiction Support Alternatives Orlando Jones says it is particularly worrying, considering the reported increase in drug use among young people.

Mr. Jones was speaking at a Church service at the Sanctuary Empowerment Centre, as CASA celebrates 18 years.
