Taking with you small amounts of ganja a.k.a. marijuana, pot, weed or cannabis has been decriminalized in Jamaica under a new law, passed Tuesday. After much debate, Jamaican lawmakers voted to make possession of small amounts of pot — up to two ounces — a petty offense that would not result in a criminal record. Furthermore, cultivation of five or fewer plants on any premises will be permitted in the country. Marijuana has been popular in Jamaica for years, but until now, ganja was completely illegal in the country, even for medicinal purposes.
