jamaica ganjaGanja growers are calling on the Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA) to clarify the conditions under which cannabis has been exported from Jamaica, even before the passage of the import/export regulations that are still in draft. “Some companies have been allowed to export and there is confusion as to whether it's samples for testing, or it's for export. There is nothing on the CLA website to guide how do you get this special permission for export,” acting programme director of the Ganja Growers and Producers Association Jamaica Paul Burke said. He said the cannabis growers continue to push for a moratorium, to allow traditional farmers to get involved in the regulated industry.
