With Science, Technology, Energy and Mining Minister Phillip Paulwell stating that Jamaica plans to become a world leader in exploiting the economic value of ganja, ganja stakeholders are of the view that the government is finally seeing the light they have been basking in for a long time. During a visit to their community by Justice Minister Mark Golding, Security Minister Peter Bunting and Tourism Minister Wykeham McNeil, residents of Orange Hill, near Negril, Westmoreland, said that ganja is the 'life blood' of their community. "Ganja send most of the children from this area to school ... even up to the university level."
