The UK’s first cannabis restaurant – focused around the ingredient cannabidiol (CBD) – is set to open in Brighton.

The Caribbean is studying how pot tourism has developed in destinations where marijuana has been legalized like California and Colorado, and more recently in Canada, said Hugh Riley, secretary general and CEO of the Caribbean Tourism Organization.
