Jamaica might be ready to legalise the growth, sale and distribution of marijuana. According to a report on BBC, the country's Rastafarian community, which uses the herb for religious purposes, could be able to smoke it legally.

The bill also seeks to provide a leeway for the cultivation, sale and distribution of marijuana for medical and therapeutic purposes through an official licensing body.
