Governor Lou Leon Guerrero of Guam signed a marijuana legalization bill for the US territory Thursday.
Although Guam approved medical marijuana in 2014 and allowed for home grown marijuana last year, the regulated industry has been off to a slow start. Known as the Guam Cannabis Industry Act of 2019, the new bill allows for adults 21 or older to possess and grow cannabis while creating a regulated system to buy and sell marijuana. There will be a 15 percent tax on the sale of marijuana products going towards law enforcement and drug treatment program
