Ganja in Kingston. (1998)
50 pounds of Ganja sits on a couch in Kingston waiting to be packaged. The photo is deceiving, the pile was much bigger in person that it looks in this pic. You could lay down on the couch and the pile would cover you completely.
This year Jamaica passed a medical use law for Ganja, as well as getting rid of prior criminal penalties for people who were jailed or sentenced for possession. There are also several medical research studies going on at the University of the West Indies. Also being looked at is the export to Canada for manufacturing medical products. Things have finally changed for the better on the island. As they say, “Better mus come”.
