Jamaica Marijuana FAQ
Is Marijuana legal in Jamaica?
Medical marijuana is legal in Jamaica. Although recreational marijuana use is not explicitly legal, it has been decriminalized and possession of up to 2 ounces or 56 grams of marijuana is punishable by a maximum fine of $5. It is also legal to grow up to five marijuana plants.
Marijuana use is also legal for practicing Rastafari adults to use for sacramental purposes. Rastafarians are permitted to grow and transport their marijuana with no limits, but they are forbidden from selling it and must only consume in their place of worship.
How much marijuana can I have?
You may possess up to two ounces (or 56 grams) of marijuana and cultivate
up to five marijuana plants.
Do I need to have a medical marijuana prescription from my home country to purchase a permit?
No, you don’t have to. Visitors arriving in Jamaica who want to purchase a permit will just have to swear that they are ill or using the marijuana for therapeutic purposes. “Therapeutic purposes” is written into the law as a permissible reason for using cannabis, and because it is very vaguely defined, most visitors will be allowed to buy a permit with that reason.
Where can I get marijuana?
For residents of Jamaica, you are permitted to grow up to five of your own plants. For visitors to Jamaica, if you are ill or have a medical marijuana prescription from your home country, you may purchase a permit that will allow you to buy marijuana from special medical marijuana shops or directly from cultivators. As of March 2016, Jamaica has not opened any medical marijuana shops.
For tourists looking to buy marijuana, it is exceedingly easy to find and you can likely ask any cab driver or hotel worker for a hook up with no problem. The new law means tourists don’t have to worry about more than a $5 possession fine if caught.
What kinds of marijuana will be available?
Pretty much all of the marijuana that you’ll find in Jamaica is grown outdoors. You will find Sativa, Indica, and hybrid strains of marijuana. Sativa strains of marijuana are a more energizing head high, whereas an Indica strain will give you a stronger body high and can induce “couch-lock.”
How much will it cost?
Typically, you can get an ounce of marijuana for $100 or less in Jamaica. Prices may vary when the medical marijuana stores open.
Where can I consume marijuana in Jamaica?
Under the law, marijuana must be consumed on private property. You likely won’t get in trouble for smoking in public, but use discretion.
Can I bring marijuana purchased in Jamaica to another country?
No! All marijuana and marijuana products purchased in Jamaica must be consumed in Jamaica. Jamaica has very strict drug trafficking laws and they are strict about them. If you have marijuana left over after your visit, donate or sell it to another grateful tourist.
