During Tuesday’s General Elections, voters across the territory had the opportunity to express their interest in medical marijuana being made available in the Virgin Islands, as well as establishing four-year terms for senators. While the medicinal marijuana referendum received modest support, the four-year terms for senators was overwhelmingly opposed by voters.
Unofficial numbers from the Virgin Islands Elections System, last made available to the public at 1:52 a.m. on Wednesday, show that more than half of voters (56.10 percent) are in support of allowing the medicinal use of marijuana in the territory. A referendum vote does not mean the issue will be made into law, but it is used as a guide to measure what voters want.
Referendum on Medicinal Marijuana:
YES (IND) . . . . . . . . . . 6,108 56.10
NO (IND). . . . . . . . . . . 4,779 43.90
When voters were asked if Senate terms should last for four years, a significant 84.36 percent disagreed, preferring to have two-year term limits.
Referendum on Senators Four-Year Terms Instead of Two:
NO (IND). . . . . . . . . . . 8,925 84.36
YES (IND) . . . . . . . . . . 1,655 15.64
