Calls for a study to be done on the impact of Crop Over on young people

Apostle Dr. Lucille Baird is calling for a study on the impact of Crop Over and the local party scene, to be conducted on young people.

Apostle Baird, who was speaking at the Barbados Workers Union panel discussion over the weekend, says she knows she will receive negative backlash for this.

However, she believes information of this nature can help to better understand the issues affecting some of the island’s youth.

She says there may be grave psychological effects due to partying on young people.
