Is marijuana legal in Jamaica?

A saying you will hear in Jamaica is “no pressure no problem” (it is also a way of life). To this, we will add “no marijuana”. Sorry. Marijuana, locally known as ganja is illegal. A confusing topic since ganja has been tied to the Jamaican culture primarily due to Rastafarianism and reggae music for decades.

That said, tourists will have no trouble procuring marijuana from roadside stands to a steady stream of peddlers on the beach. If you’re not interested, a simple ‘No, no thank you” will suffice. But do know, possession of small amounts up to two ounces or 56.6 grams, is a petty offense should you decide not to only follow the no pressure no problem philosophy while visiting Jamaica.

The coolest months are December to February, with February usually having the coolest temperatures. Expect highs in the mid-80s (F), and lows in the high 60s, depending on your location. In the mountains, night-time temperatures may fall as low as mid-40s.

Is it safe to leave my resort in Jamaica?

Yes, yes and yes. Jamaica is a beautiful country and you will enjoy the culture, food, and people.  We are here to help you customize your experience but if you want to go it alone, keep the following in mind…Look for Taxis licensed by JUTA, MAXI or JCal. You will see the sticker/logo and license number on the back of the vehicle. All three organizations have rigid yearly requirements that require the drivers to re-certify for a license, including back ground checks! Be smart – visiting a strange part of town at night is never a good idea no matter where you are.

If you want to exchange your currency to JMD, let your driver know and he will be glad to stop at a Cambio. To see the conversion rate visit https://www.xe.com/currencyconverter/
