APPLY FOR A CANNABIS LICENCE
The Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA), an agency of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries (MICAF), was established under the Dangerous Drug Amendment Act (DDA), with a specific role to establish and regulate Jamaica’s legal ganja and hemp industry.
The Authority’s Licensing and Applications Division (LAD), as well as, its Enforcement and Monitoring Division (EMD), work together to ensure that applications are appropriately reviewed, and licenses issued to qualified applicants; and that licensees comply with the terms and conditions of their license.
Any person or organisation meeting the criteria set by the relevant legislation and regulations can apply for a licence for the use, cultivation, processing, transportation, importation, exportation, transit, manufacture, sale, possession and distribution of Cannabis for medical, therapeutic or scientific purposes (including research, clinical trials, therapy and treatment and the manufacture of nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals).
