Executive director of the National Council on Drug Abuse (NCDA), Michael Tucker, has warned that the misinformation circulating among Jamaicans about marijuana could be dangerous. Tucker is quite concerned that people are confusing decriminalisation with legalisation. "It is illegal to grow it and it's illegal to sell it. Despite people not going to be locked up for two ounces or less, it is still illegal."
