The long awaited legislation to amend the Dangerous Drugs Act has been drafted by the Jamaican Government to establish industrial hemp and medical ganja industries. This means that the cultivation and other activities involved in the production and supply of the ganja plants will be legal under a controlled regime.


This pronouncement was made by Minister of Justice, Senator Mark Golding at a special press briefing on Tuesday September 30, 2014 at the Office of the Prime Minister.

As I listened to the news, I could not help but feel the exuberant and victory spirit of the ganja farmers and all other stakeholders who were pressing for such a legislation to be passed. However, Senator Golding said that it is significant that the regulated utilization of ganja and industrial hemp for the specific purposes is indicated by the 1961 United Nations Single Convention of Narcotic drugs.

He also stressed that although the amended law will observe Jamaica's anti-narcotics obligations, the industries will operate under licenses. Therefore, it is not going to be free handed as many Jamaicans think.

Minister Golding said that there will be permits and authorizations for controlled cultivation, production, processing, possession, transportation, deliver, offering for sale, exporting and importing of ganja for medical and scientific purposes, including researches, clinical trials and the manufacture of nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals.

Ganja medicinal herb is used to treat many ailments including the reduction and eradication of all infections in the body. Ganja is also referred to as Marijuana, Herb, Hemp, Weed, Cannabis and Indian hemp. I believe that ganja, like any other herb, should be used for medicinal purposes only.
