Ganja growers warned: GET 'LEGIT' TO GET IN IT!

The right balance has to be struck so as to ensure that the industry is opened for all legitimate competition to come in

Local ganja growers, particularly small farmers, in Jamaica are being urged to enter the formal market to benefit from the decriminalising of the product rather than seeking to operate in the underground economy. With the amendment of the Dangerous Drugs Act, which became law on April 15, 2015, paving the way for the legal introduction of medical marijuana, industrial hemp, and cannabis, the Government is warning that persons who have been profiting from the illicit ganja trade will soon be required to transition into the formal framework or face strong sanctions.
