Church Leader Endorses Legalising Ganja

Another church leader has joined the growing number of persons advocating for the country to legalise the ganja trade. Reverend Rennard White, vice president of the Jamaica Evangelical Alliance and president of the Missionary Church Association, says ganja should be given greater attention and should form part of the national development plan. Addressing congregants at yesterday&;s Labour Day thanksgiving service at the Covenant Moravian Church in St Andrew, he says such an industry has to be properly managed to maximise the economic benefits. In 2012, general secretary of the Jamaica Baptist Union, Reverend Karl Johnson, called for the decriminalisation of ganja. He argues that it should also be made available in certain quantities and instances that do not include exporting. He explains that the clergy has largely been silent on the issue because of the cultural perceptions of ganja.
