Mark GoldingSmall farmers, the Maroons and Rastafarians are to be given special treatment in the ganja industry whenever the People’s National Party (PNP) next forms the Government in Jamaica. That commitment was given by PNP President Mark Golding at the party’s 84th Annual Conference at the National Arena. He said it was time for Jamaica to move beyond decriminalisation of the weed. “The potential of this industry is vast but the Government does not seem to understand or believe in it. Time come to proactively empower and include small farmers in the ganja industry. They’re the ones who built and protected our knowledge system around ganja over a century of prohibition enforced by international interests,” Golding remarked.
