Is cannabis legal in Jamaica?
Cannabis has been decriminalized in Jamaica but not completely legalized. Since 2015, possession of up to two ounces (57g) of pot is no longer a criminal offence. Carrying this amount in public can still attract a fixed penalty fine (around US$3), but no criminal record will result.
The possession fine does not apply to medical marijuana, including products purchased at a licensed dispensary. Possession of up to two ounces of weed by visitors for medical purposes is legal.
Where can I legally buy cannabis in Jamaica?
Jamaica’s revised drug laws have allowed the creation of medical marijuana dispensaries, the first of which opened in 2018. Equal parts doctor’s clinic, Amsterdam-style coffee shop and hipster boutique, these are currently the only places where travelers to Jamaica can legally buy cannabis products.
There are five legal dispensaries in Jamaica – Island Strains in Montego Bay, Epican in both Kingston and Montego Bay, and Kaya in both Falmouth and St Ann’s Bay. To buy products, ID such as a passport or driving license is required (over 18 only), as well as proof of your medical need to buy ganja. This can take the form of a doctor’s prescription from home or a consultation with an on-site medic, although some dispensaries currently allow self-certification by the completion of a medical form.
