Cannabis Board Approves Regulations to Guide Ganja Industry

The newly appointed board of directors for the Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA) has approved the regulations that will guide the start of Jamaica’s legal ganja industry.

The CLA, which was created by the Dangerous Drug (Amendment) Act 2015, has powers to make and oversee the implementation of regulations for licenses, permits and other authorisations for the cultivation, processing, distribution, sale and transportation of hemp as well as ganja, for medicinal, scientific and therapeutic purposes, a news release from the authority said Thursday.

The minister responsible for the Authority, Karl Samuda, has congratulated the board for the speed at which it has been able to develop the regulations, acknowledging that this was due in large part to the level of continuity that has been given to their work.
