The Jamaican government was considering the legalization of marijuana, a drug revered by the island's large Rastafarian population, according to reports reaching here from Kingston Saturday.
A government commission which was drafting possible amendments to the country's anti-drug laws, prepared to submit a report on the issue to the prime minister.
# A similar recommendation was dropped by lawmakers in 2003 fearing that legalization would lead to U.S. economic sanctions.
Jamaica is reportedly the largest producer and exporter of marijuana in the Caribbean region and a major hub for drugs trafficked to the United States.
# yet another example of the American drug war dictating how countries make or rather don't dare make their own laws!!!, it stinks!.
