Finally the Jamaican Government is using their common sense. In April of this year, marijuana farmers will be able to apply for lies to legally plant marijuana without being harassed or arrested by law enforcement.
The Jamaican Government which is pretty much puppets of the United States had kept marijuana illegal even for the Rastafarians who see the herb as a holy sacrament. So with pressure from the U.S. Jamaica has failed to capitalize from the green economy even as states like Colorado and Washington boasted of the millions they made in tax revenues from legal marijuana sales.
Last year the Jamaican Government issued a license to the University of the West Indies to cultivate marijuana. Starting in April, any Jamaican citizen will be able to apply for a license to become a marijuana farmer.
