Cannabis ATM's to open in Jamaican Airports for easy access

Jamaica is planning to open cannabis 'ATMs' in its airports - allowing tourists the chance to get hold of weed as soon as they arrive in the country.
Cannabis decriminalization Jamaica.The country is looking at ways to cash in on the drug after it was decriminalised last February. I didn't even know this had taken place,Bob Marley must be singing a mellow song in his resting place now,oh,and Peter Tosh as

well.Remember that song he sang about legalize it don't criticize it?
Jamaican lawmakers have passed an act to decriminalise small amounts of marijuana and establish a licensing agency to regulate a lawful medical cannabis industry on the island.

Cannabis news.After several hours of debate legislators in the lower house on Tuesday gave final passage to drug law amendments that make possession of up to 2oz (56.6g) of marijuana a petty offence that would not result in a criminal record. Cultivation of five or fewer plants on any premises would be permitted in Jamaica, where the drug has long been culturally entrenched but illegal.
Rastafarians can also legally use marijuana for religious purposes for the first time on the island where the spiritual movement was founded in the 1930s. Tourists prescribed medical marijuana abroad will be able to apply for permits at a cost authorising them to legally buy small amounts of “ganja”, as it is known locally.

The Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA) has now started to look at ways to introduce these dedicated desks where visitors can pick up a licence for the 'good herb', Daily Mirror reports.

It is currently legal to carry up to two ounces of weed in Jamaica, although police do still have the power to issue anyone in possession with a ticket and a J$500 (£2.98) fine.

CLA member Delano Seiveright said he hopes the country could follow in the footsteps of places like Canada and US state Colarado, which have both made millions from the legal sale of cannabis.
In Colorado, where weed is legal for recreational and medicinal use, they sold about $1 billion worth of marijuana and collected $135 million in taxes.
