JAMAICANS TO LIGHT UP MORE COMFORTABLY
The Government of Jamaica gave third and final reading to a bill to legalize both the production of medical marijuana and the personal consumption of marijuana. Timeless Herbal Care Ltd., a Jamaican-Canadian company involved in the production and export of medical marijuana, was instrumental in creating a bill that establishes a framework for the production, use and export of Jamaican produced international grade medical marijuana.
Speaking in Toronto, The Hon. Ernie Eves, former Premier of the Province of Ontario, Canada and chairperson of Timeless Herbal Care Ltd. said today that, “Jamaica is now uniquely positioned to become the medical marijuana hub not just for the Caribbean and Canada but, for the world.”
The bill to legalize marijuana could well be the law of the land in Jamaica within a week. The bill was introduced to the House of Parliament by Senator Mark Golding, who is also Minister of Justice in the Lower House, and as such it was voted on and already has Senatorial approval. All that is required now is Royal Assent from the Island’s Governor General.
