- Bermuda: The governor withheld her assent to the Cannabis Licensing Act 2022 – a bill to legalise cannabis and hemp – after Parliament passed the bill, press reports. The governor explained that she feared that the legislation would breach the UK's and Bermuda's obligations under the UN conventions and urged Bermuda officials to work with UK authorities to find a compromise.

Bermuda: The Cannabis Licensing Act, which would permit the cultivation and retail sale of cannabis for adult use, was passed by the House of Assembly and could become law if approved by the governor, press reports. The bill must first pass through the Senate, but that move is merely procedural, as the Senate cannot veto the bill again after doing so in 2021. The bill would establish a licensing system allowing for the cultivation and sale of various cannabis products, including flower, topicals, oils, and edibles.
