There has been a 72 per cent reduction in the number of new ganja offences listed in all Parish Courts since the amendment of the Dangerous Drugs Act last year.     
According to Justice Minister Delroy Chuck, 2,285 cases went before Parish Courts in 2015 compared to 8,284 the previous year.
Mr. Chuck, who gave the update during in his contribution to the Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on Wednesday, said he expects that the number will be further reduced.
He says the amendment to the Criminal Records (Rehabilitation of Offenders) Act resulted in 71 offenders being qualified to have their offences automatically expunged.
"Along with those amendments carried out by the last administration, (in terms of) expungement for persons who were convicted for ganja related offences, I now report that 3,954 persons have had their records expunged and now have a clean police record," he declared.
