Guam legalized the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes in 2015 after a ballot referendum passed with 56 percent of the vote. It was the first United States Territory to do so. Guam’s Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) contracted with Metrc in November 2021 to help in the responsible regulation of the island’s medicinal cannabis market.
The Legislature of Guam passed the Cannabis Industry Act in March 2019, legalizing recreational cannabis for adults aged 21 and over. The act declassified marijuana as a Schedule 1 controlled substance and created the Cannabis Control Board to regulate adult-use cannabis for public health, welfare, safety, and taxation purposes.
