is weed legal in aruba

Recreational cannabis will not be legalized in Aruba

ORANJESTAD – The Government of Aruba announced it would not legalize recreational cannabis.

The Government of Aruba has been working for a while on the legislation of medical cannabis. This to meet the demand for the use of cannabis-derived oils, creams, and its positive effects. The use of cannabis or any cannabis-derived product is still against the laws of Aruba. This should be changed according to the Cabinet, Wever-Croes The import of cannabis oils and creams should become legal in Aruba making it more accessible for all. The positive effect these oils have for cancer patients should be the main reason for the legalization of medical cannabis.

The effects of the oil and creams on humans are not similar compared to those of marihuana. The Government is emphasizing that it will only legalize medical cannabis and NOT recreational cannabis.

Many families suffer from the effects of marihuana addiction by family members and the Government will assist these families with support and facilities to help addicts, but it will certainly not contribute to the deterioration among the youth due to substance abuse.

The use of illegal drugs will be prosecuted by the law.

The legalization of medical cannabis will be submitted to strict conditions and regulations.

The Government will legalize medical cannabis but not recreational cannabis.

Aruba and the Netherlands (cannabis laws)

Since Aruba is part of the Netherlands, and even though the region is autonomous, I was wondering if they have similar policy towards cannabis?
I have been known to have a smoke from time to time, but don’t want to be involved in anything seedy.

Cannabis is illegal in the Netherlands also, but is also non-punishable, so whats the deal with Aruba?

My understanding is it is punishable, as with other illegal drugs.

EDIT: I just googled Aruba illegal drug laws, and found this site. It’s a US Dept. of State website but I’m certain this applies to everyone. http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_p. /cis_1153.html

Penalties for possession, use, or trafficking in illegal drugs in Aruba are severe, and convicted offenders can expect long jail sentences and heavy fines.

grandson of a lacabana owner has been in the police station’s jail for 48 hrs.
he came in on the princess cruise ship, came up to eagle beach and blatantly smoked his weed on the beach.
caught, arrested, detained and missed his ship sailing.
he got bagged with 3 ounces of pot in his beach bag.
(he is no kid he is 23)
per his grand parents they arranged for an attorney, but the attorney has yet to make arrangements for his release. awwww.

the grandparents are disgusted and disturbed.

whether folks realize it and or accept it illegal drug use is PROHIBITED.

unsure if the rules are ok for medical marijuana.

Isn’t there a jail or prison down around St Nicolas?
