Jamaica Plants It’s First Ever Legal Cannabis Plant

It’s being reported that The University of the West Indies has been authorized by the Jamaican government to cultivate marijuana for medical research, but more significantly to ‘set the pace the development of a legal cannabis industry’.

The new development for Marijuana in the country comes across the Dangerous Drugs (Amendment) Act 2015, which hopes to develop a medical marijuana industry in the country.

A similar license will also be granted to Jamaica’s University of Technology.

Jamaica’s Science Minister Philip Paulwell said the trial could pave the way for the commercialization of Cannabis.

‘I want to know when you start to do the experimentation, and what is found in the plant’ .. ‘We have to start this way, so that we can set the stage for full commercialization’.
