Did you know?
The worldwide Cannabis Industry is projected to reach a whopping US $90.4 billion by 2026, for context that’s 5 times Jamaica’s GDP of US $16.46 billion recorded for 2019.
Cannabis is technically prohibited in Jamaica, however, possession of small amounts was lowered to a minor offence in 2015. This came as a result of the Dangerous Drugs Amendment Act of 2015, which established a legal market for medicinal cannabis.
This places Jamaica at the forefront of the developing world’s cannabis legalization efforts.
