jamaica flagsTwo of the Jamaica's leading thinkers have called on the Government to rethink its policy approach towards the development of the medical ganja industry. Former governor general Professor Kenneth Hall disagrees with the establishment of the Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA) to regulate an industry that is at the embryonic stage. Hall suggested that Government should, instead, set up an agency to promote the development of the medical ganja industry. Scientist and entrepreneur Professor Henry Lowe also lamented how the medical ganja industry was being managed, noting that there was “too much control”.
