Jamaica’s Regulated Cannabis Industry: First Steps

The Beckley Foundation, in partnership with the Jamaican Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Industry, Investment & Commerce, organised a two-day conference entitled “Jamaica’s Regulated Cannabis Industry: First Steps” which took place in Negril on 13-14 November, 2015, coinciding with the inaugural Rastafari RootzFest and World Cannabis Cup 2015.

Following recent changes in Jamaican law to decriminalise cannabis and develop a regulated medical cannabis industry, Amanda Feilding, Founder and Director of the Beckley Foundation, was invited by Mark Golding, Jamaican Minister of Justice, to advise him and the government in their formation of balanced policies.
