Gov’t discussing regulations for medicinal ganja industry

KINGSTON, Jamaica (JIS) – Minister of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Phillip Paulwell, says the Government is moving to ensure that the regulatory framework is in place for the medicinal ganja industry.

“We no longer need to be looking for perfection, let us start something and we can build on it. Already, we are seeing many models that we can look at, but there is going to be an inherent Jamaican model that we could export to the world,” the Minister said.

Paulwell was speaking at the opening ceremony of the third biennial science and technology conference and exposition, held at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel on November 10.

The Government in September announced its intention to amend the Dangerous Drugs Act, to lay the foundation for the establishment of regulatory regimes to govern the cultivation and use of ganja for medicinal and scientific purposes, as well as non-medicinal industrial hemp. [Read More]
