jamaica cotton ganjaDelano Seiveright, a director of the Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA), says that ganja growers should look beyond farming “so so weed” in seeking to benefit from the relaxation of legislation covering its use for business investment. Growers should, instead, “seriously take on the many value-added products and experiences that emanate from the herb”. He said that international pressure and resultant fear had been the biggest obstacle to reform, despite the hypocrisy of such pressures, given the fact that more than half the states in the United States have liberalised the use of ganja, with eight, including its capital city, Washington, DC, and its most populous state, California, legalising the product.
