Medical Marijuana Industry Soon To Be Licensed In Jamaica

A Cannabis Licensing Authority is to be established to regulate the proposed hemp and medical marijuana industry in Jamaica.

This is one of the provisions of the Dangerous Drugs (Amendment) Act, 2015, which is expected to be tabled in the Senate on Friday.

The Bill seeks to decriminalize ganja for medicinal, religious, and private/personal use.

Making the disclosure while addressing a media briefing on Wednesday, minister of justice, Senator Mark Golding, said the Authority will be responsible for establishing a lawful, regulated hemp and medicinal ganja industry.

“The Cannabis Licensing Authority will, with the approval of the minister responsible for justice, make regulations treating with (among other things) procedures and criteria for applying for and retention of licences, permits and other authorizations for cultivation, processing, distribution, sale and other handling of ganja for medicinal, scientific and therapeutic purposes,” he said.

The proposed changes to the Act will facilitate ganja being used for therapeutic purposes, as prescribed by a registered practitioner, or for scientific research conducted by an accredited tertiary institution or otherwise approved by the Scientific Research Council (SRC).

The changes will also enable the use of ganja in religious engagements by stakeholders, such as Rastafarians.

Additionally, the amendments will make the possession of small quantities of ganja, amounting to two ounces or less, a non-arrestable but ticketable infraction, attracting a fine payable outside of the court, but not resulting in the possessor attaining a criminal record.

  1. BLACK PEOPLE THAT WAS BROUGHT OVER HERE IN SLAVE SHIPS HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM AFRICANS! THOSE AFRICANS ARE A SEPARATE NATION THEN WE ARE. YES, WE WAS IN AFRICA BUT CHECK OUT HOW WE GOT THERE!!!

    The Muslims said "they were living in great number to the south of the desert – a people cursed of God and predestines as slaves." The Muslims also called the western Sudan (West Africa) "Yahoodee" which means "The Tribes of Israel". Hebrews were also led captive into many "African" nations, by many indigenous Tribes on the west and east coast of Africa. It was these tribesmen that sold us to Muslims who in turn sold us to the Europeans. Or sometimes these tribesmen would sell us directly to the Europeans.

    I'm gonna start off by going into who the Africans are. We all know about Noah and the flood…right? Well Noah had three sons Ham, Shem and Japhet. It is interesting to note that in the Zondervans bible dictionary when you look up HAM it says this:

    HAM, the youngest son of Noah born probably about 96 years before the Flood; and one of eight people to live through the Flood. He became the progenitor of the dark races; NOT THE NEGROES, but the Egyptians, Ethiopians, Libyans, and Canaanites (Gen 10:6-20).

    Why did it say NOT the NEGROES? Because the Negroes do not come from Ham we come from Shem but we believe we are Africans because they got us from Africa but check this out! This is a book from BABYLON to TIMBUKTU by a professor Rudolph Windsor and he did some research and this is a bit of discovery I think you will find interesting!

    From Babylon to Timbuktu page 84 states:

    In the year 65 B.C. the Roman armies under General Pompey captured Jerusalem. In 70 A.D. General Vespasian and his son Titus put a end to the Jewish state, with great slaughter. During the period of the military governors of Palestine, many outrages and atrocities were committed against the residue of the people. During the period from Pompey to Julius, it has been estimated that over 1,000,000 Jews fled into Africa, fleeing from Roman persecution and slavery. The slave markets were full of black Jewish slaves.

    Deuteronomy 28:68 And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt (bondage) again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee,(your home land) Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies (the white man) for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you (free you).

    When you read the bible it is about black people being enslaved by other nations and the LORD taking them out when they return to him.
