Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
In a very significant and historic move, the Jamaica Travel Channel via Instagram has included marijuana / ganja as one of the reasons visitors should come to the island.
In a picture posted recently, the Jamaica Travel Channel showcased three marijuana joints and a grinder with the words Jamaica carved in it. The picture was captioned "Come for an irie time mon!"
Many Jamaicans have long been calling for the legalization of ganja, and the former government made steps in this direction. It has been an open secret that the good Jamaican ganja has been one reason for visitors to come to the island, but, up until recently, ganja has been illegal and the possession of weed a criminal offence.
The Jamaican government last year approved the decriminalization of small amounts of ganja for personal use.
