Jamaica to mount Cannabis ATMs at is Airport so tourist can get access to weed on arrival


Jamaica is planning to open cannabis 'ATMs' in its airports - allowing tourists the chance to get hold of weed as soon as they arrive in the country.

The country is looking at ways to cash in on the drug after it was decriminalised last February. 

The Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA) has now started to look at ways to introduce these dedicated desks where visitors can pick up a licence for the 'good herb', Daily Mirror reports.


It is currently legal to carry up to two ounces of weed in Jamaica, although police do still have the power to issue anyone in possession with a ticket and a J$500 (£2.98) fine.

CLA member Delano Seiveright said he hopes the country could follow in the footsteps of places like Canada and US state Colorado, which have both made millions from the legal sale of cannabis.

In Colorado, where weed is legal for recreational and medicinal use, they sold about $1 billion worth of marijuana and collected $135 million in taxes.
