Jamaica’s medical marijuana industry

Jamaica is moving to establish a medical marijuana industry, according to Audley Shaw, minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries.

He said the government is moving to ensure that Jamaica is not left behind in the growing medical cannabis industry.

Shaw noted that while Jamaica has only decriminalized the use of up to two ounces of marijuana and issued a few licenses for production and processing, the product is now legal in Canada, and 31 states in the United States have been producing and using it for medicinal and recreational purposes.
