Abstract: This report represents findings of research into the nature and extent of the drug situation in Grenada from 1988 to 2002 and the proceedings of the workshop, “Network To Improve Recording, Exchange and Comparability of Data Between Agencies,” held in December 2002 in Grenada. The report identifies the main drug problem in Grenada which is cannabis. The data in this report was obtained through the Grenada Drug Information Network (GRENDIN), a system through which Grenada will coordinate the collection and dissemination of information from all institutions involved in the area of drug control, or the collection of relevant statistical data. The current report provides an overview of the drug situation and trends in Grenada, as well as future directions. Over the last 5 years, the number of marijuana plants eradicated has decreased from 16,768 plants in 1996 to 4,920 plants in 2000. However, there was an increase in the number of plants eradicated in 2001. Approximately 6,493 plants were eradicated in 2001. Marijuana is the drug of choice among persons ages 18 to 45 years. The main drug-related offense committed in Grenada is the possession of marijuana. In the future, GRENDIN will enhance Grenada’s ability to participate in international data-gathering projects, with more comprehensive data.
