    America’s thriving ganja industry

    Published: Friday | June 26, 2009

    The Editor, Sir:

    On Wednesday, June 23, about 9:00 p.m. I happened to be watching a documentary titled ‘Inside America’s pot industry’ being aired on CNBC. This was an amazing eye-opener. I now understand why the United States (US) is determined to suppress the growing of ganja in the Caribbean, and specifically Jamaica. Our ganja trade is threatening the economy of one of their largest states, and also robbing the State of California of significant income through taxes.

    In the Northern California Triangle, a town called – by design, I imagine – ‘Potter Valley’, located in Mendocina County, there is a large and legal marijuana industry. The growing and selling of the herb is being hailed as the saviour of the county.

    Growing marijuana has replaced the failed industries of that part of California. The region has thrived, as 60 per cent of the populace grow and sell various edible and smokeable items from the herb. This is all legal, under California laws. The State of California taxes the industry, earning $60 million annually from the business.

    There exists in Oakland, California, a narco brand economy that has opened the Oaksterdam University, teaching people how to grow pot. And yet, the US Government has been sending aircraft
    to spray and kill ganja farms in the hills of Jamaica. They are not doing that in California. They have not attempted to shut down the university.

    Impose sanctions

    I recall that, some time in the late 1980s, two Jamaican doctors – highly qualified and well respected men – Manley West and A.B. Lockhart, developed a medication for glaucoma from marijuana, called Canasol, working out of the University of the West Indies. Canasol was proven to be highly effective in the treatment of glaucoma, but it has not been allowed to be marketed in the United States to this day.

    There is something very wrong being done to us here in Jamaica by the United States of America. The guns that are killing our people are exported from the US and they have done little or nothing to stop the steady and deadly flow of lethal weapons into our country. Yet, they have threatened to impose sanctions on us if we do not stop marijuana from entering the US. The situation begs the question. Is this a case of the US protecting its own local industry? Countries are known to do that.

    It is time for our Government to follow the example of a significant and sizeable section of the US and decriminalise the growing of ganja in Jamaica. If the US has a usage problem they should deal with that on their shores. One of their biggest states has shown that it can be highly profitable, and their own Government is benefiting from the business. Is that hypocrisy? I certainly think so.

    With the current fallout of the bauxite industry, the St Elizabeth and St Ann areas could be given permission to develop an industry similar to that which exists in California. We are in serious times and this is a way out for these people. Yes, there will have to be regulations; but this is not beyond us to put that in place.

    I know that many wise and prudent people read these letters to the editor and there needs to be a meeting of these minds to force a legislative decision on the issue. I urge the media houses to obtain a copy of the documentary for airing on our networks. There are many lessons to be learned from this. We have adopted many ideas from Uncle Sam. This could be one of immense benefit to our faltering economy. And perhaps this small island could give America a little competition in an area that is clearly profitable for their citizens and the State of California.

    I am, etc.,

    Block loopholes in proposed sex laws – Senator

    Published: Sunday | June 28, 2009

    Edmond Campbell, Senior Staff Reporter

    Falconer (left) and Bennett

    MEN WHO cheat on their female partners by engaging in homosexual acts should be punished under the proposed sexual offences law, according to Opposition Senator Sandrea Falconer.

    At the same time, another parliamentarian is urging her colleagues to block every loophole to prevent a man who undergoes a sex change from seeking coverage under the definition of sexual intercourse in the proposed law.

    In her contribution to the debate on Friday, Senator Falconer charged that she had little regard for bisexuals. “I believe that those men when found out should be eligible for prosecution under Section 4 Subsection 4 (3) (b) of this current bill,” she said.

    The particular section of the bill states: “Consent shall not be deemed to exist where the apparent agreement to sexual intercourse is obtained by false and fraudulent representation as to the nature of the act or the identity of the offender.”

    Commenting on repeat sex offenders, the Opposition senator said they should be put away for life without parole. She is also pushing for the proposed sentence of 15 years for a man who commits a sexual offence against a person with a mental disorder to be changed to life imprisonment.

    Commending the move to establish a sexual-offenders registry, the senator stressed that persons who committed heinous acts against women, children and sometimes men must, after conviction, be publicly identified and shamed.

    DNA database

    Falconer urged the administration to set up a DNA database as a matter of urgency to identify sexual predators, who were often repeat offenders.

    Meanwhile, Government Senator Hyacinth Bennett said the vagina and penis should in the bill, be stated as the natural sex organs as defined at birth.

    In the proposed law, sexual intercourse means the penetration of the vagina of one person by the penis of another person.

    “The sex organs should not include any surgically constructed sex organs under circumstances, such as where a person underwent a sex change,” Senator Bennett said.

    She argued that a man could claim to change his gender to that of a woman by having a vagina surgically constructed and then seek coverage under the definition of sexual intercourse.

    Turning to marital rape, Bennett proposed an amendment to Section 5 (3) (d) of the Sexual Offences bill, which states that a husband can be deemed to have raped his wife if he knows he is suffering from a sexually transmitted infection and transmits it to his wife.

    She recommended that the wording of the provision be changed to indicate that if the husband knew he was suffering from a sexually transmitted infection and wilfully or recklessly allowed or caused transmission of the infection to his wife, he should be held liable for marital rape.

    “I am a woman and I am not going to be biased. Having a sexually transmitted infection is not a death sentence. Persons with such infections may, if they take the right precautions, engage in sexual activity,” she acknowledged.

    However, she added that the legislation could not have intended to punish a husband in the case of accidental transmission.

  7. Vick Woodhull says:

    I will tell you what, Guy Morris, what you say is true, but not correct. Let me put it this way, the U.S. has long had a hypocritical stance regards Jamaican Pot and the Ganja industry, but it has been equally schizoid with respect to California’s industry. Cheech and Chong were part of a Bush administration ‘hit squad’ campaign and were jailed on trumped up charges for ‘encouraging youth,’ for God’s sake.

    I am American, so I will ask my Jamaican brothers to trust me on this basic observation, that my country is completely nuts and has been for a while.

    If the U.S. Government were rational it would look at the fact that most native Jamaican strains of cannabis are fairly mild and high energy compared especially to the engineered ‘Ses” strains in underground labs in No. Ca. and B.C. But, non of this is about rational.

    Look at the death just now of MJ on totally legal, drug industry prescribed drugs like Oxy Con.

    If we live long enough, as I can attest, we get tired or bored of everything extra. Just love and a little wine will suffice plus coffee in the morning. Thanks. But, neither youth, nor government will ever learn common sense or patience.

  8. anony says:

    Vicky the name of the doumentary with Tommy Chong explaining what happended to him is called ‘american drug the last white hope. It was on showtime in march but you can buy it or rent it from blockbuster. Tommy is out now but he explained that his case was the first case tried under the homeland security laws when they were implemented in 01. So you are right in you observation that the government is nuts, cause they claimed they passed homeland security laws so they could find terrorists. Anyway Tommy said he now knows what a black man feels like. Anyway when/if u watch the documentary u will see exactly what caused him to get locked up. The did not mess with Cheech at all.

  9. anony says:

    bobiesha, I read that article on the radiojamaica website & observer too, but its a proposal & it have to be modified before it finnally get signed into law & how long it will take for them to agree on any topic is anyonesg guess, u know how SLOW politician can be when it comes to agreeing on anyting. Anyway boboiesha senators & lawmakers can pass or propose all the laws they want but if they dont have the resources or the manpower to enforce the laws they pass, then there aint much they can do about the alleged problem. Take for example the rape unit in Jamaica does not have a gynecologist right now. Now how dem call demself a rape unit & dem don’t even have staff fe fill de unit? See how jakeland politicians is just behaving like the US politician ‘all style no substance’

SO THEY CAN HAVE SOME UNDERSTANDING AS TO WHERE THE WORLD IS GOING!… YOU CANT BE THINKING BACKWARDS!… WHEN IT COME TO LAWS AND THE WAY THEY WILL AFFECT PEOPLE LIVES!..

    TO ME THE MERE PROPOSAL MAKE THEM LOOK VERY ILLITERATE!… BECAUSE THESE ARE THE TYPE OF THINGS YOU TALK ABOUT IN A DICTATORSHIP! OR AN AUTOCRACY!..GOVERNMENT!… THEY ARE IN FACT PROPOSING THE CONTROLLING OF WHO YOU SEE WHAT YOU THINK YOU ARE ! AND WHO YOU SHOULD SLEEP WITH!… AND HOW MANY WOMEN YOU CAN HAVE! OR SLEEP WITH!.. AND IT ALSO SEEM TO HAVE A UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCE THAT THEY DON’T SEE!…

    THEY NEED TO THINK RATIONAL AND TAKE THEIR PERSONAL EMOTION OUT OF MAKING LAWS!… WHAT EVER THEY ARE GOING THROUGH!..

  12. anony says:

    Well honestly Bob, I think that many of the decisions that the leaders of the Caribbean islands make are neccesarily decisions they come to on the own. Unfortunatley the PEOPLE who live on these islands yard included don’t know this. I live in the US, but just like yourself and many others, we keep in touch with whats going on at home (Jamaica) what you will notice is the BIG countries US, UK, etc etc, when these countries make a decision/law in that country, usually at some point OUR countries leaders usually implement a LAW (in this case sex law) that closely resemble what was passed in the BIG country, US, UK etc. A prime example is this ALL of a sudden just like US with Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme scandal broke, BRAP Jamdown have it too,with the Cash plus etc, THESE THINGS ARENT BY COINCIDENE U KNOW. I could go on with other examples but the site don’t have enough space, This lead me to ask u this question Bob, are the islands really independent countries?

  13. anony says:

    I meant the decisions carribean leaders make ARE NOT neccesarily decisions they come to on their own, I mean they are influenced/directed sometimes ordered/pressured to do what the BIG countries want them to, or else they might end up like CUBA by that I mean ISOLATED on the world stage.

  14. BOB says:

    ANONY:

    I KNOW AND THAT’S WHY I AM SO PEEVED WITH THEM!… BECAUSE THEIR DON’T HAVE THE BALLS TO REALLY STAND UP FOR THEIR PEOPLE!. THEY RATHER GET A COUPLE DOLLARS IN THEIR POCKETS ! THAN TAKE THEIR PEOPLES INTEREST IN THEIR DECISIONS MAKING!… I CAN UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE SOME THINGS FROM BIG COUNTRIES THAT WE CAN ADOPTED!… BUT AT THE SAME TIME! WE NEED TO ADJUST THEM TO FIT OUR PEOPLE’S NEED AND CULTURE! AND OUR SOCIETY!…

  15. Craig says:

    While gay rights advocacy is a fulsome part of the democratic process I’m not convinced that attacking Jamaica’s already weak economy will inspire sympathy for this cause.

    Indeed, poverty gives rise to myriad of social problems – violence being one of them. This encouragement of an effective economic embargo indirectly supports the kind of aggression and hostility that has become characteristic of Jamaican society.

    Jamaican businesses aren’t the cause or perpetrators of homophobia and shouldn’t be the target of this misguided campaign.

  16. anony says:

    I agree with Craig y should legitimate Jamaican business suffer because of an issue that has nothing to do with them just because a fringe group from a BIG country says so? this is exactly what I have been trying to tell Bob all this time. There is all kinds of phobias that is going on right in the US, yet this gay issue is the one they want to address and specifically directed at poor jamaica. Bob there aint much adjusting that the islands can do when ordered to do something, or they will be punished, an example of this is the imf loan that Jamaica will get will be very very very difficult to pay of this time. Thats one form of punishment for not towing the line u watch.

  17. BOB says:

    ANONY AND CRAIG!…

    A LOT OF FOOLS COME ON HERE MAKING COMMENT OF WHICH I TRIED TO TELL THEM TO DROP!.. BECAUSE JAMAICA IS A COUNTRY WHOSE ECONOMY DEPEND ON OTHER COUNTRIES!…. BUT EVEN THE BUFFOON FINANCE MINISTER HIMSELF! DID NOT SEEM TO KNOW THAT EITHER!… AND THAT’S THE KIND OF IGNORANCE THAT KEEP THE MAJORITY OF JAMAICA SO CLOSED MINDED!…

    YES ANOYN, THE THE INTERNATIONAL MAFIA FUND (IMF) LOAN WILL BE PAINFUL! BECAUSE WE HAVE LEADERS WHO PUT UP WITH SLACKNESS!… AND DON’T KNOW WHEN AND WHERE TO TALK!

    HE REALIZE THAT HE NEED MONEY TO BUILD UP HIS WAR MACHINE! BUT “WHO YOU THINK HAVE THE MONEY?… “THE JEWS OF COURSE!… SO WHAT YOU THINK HE DID?.. HE RELAX HIS HARSH TREATMENT OF THEM JUST TO BE ABLE TO GET MONEY FROM THEM TO BE ABLE TO BUILD UP HIS ARMY AND THEN HE DESTROYED THEM!…

    IN THE CASE OF JAMAICA. OUR LEADERS ARE SO STUPID THAT THEY PUT THE CART BEFORE THE ASS AND NOW THE POOR FOOLS ARE PAYING THE PRICE!..

    UNLIKE ANY COUNTRY! THE POLITICIANS ARE THE ONES WHO ALWAYS INSIGHT THINGS! BUT WHEN IT COME TO PUNISHMENT THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO NEVER GET PUNISHED!… JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE NEW PROPOSED SEX CRIME BILL!…

    Thank you, Gleaner Blogs, for giving a forum to this subject and for putting on such stark display the wretched hatred and bigotry of what is apparently a huge portion of the Jamaican people. It is astonishing. I am a STRAIGHT woman who has vacationed three times in Jamaica and will NEVER AGAIN return to your island. Do you not understand that many of us have gay and lesbian siblings, friends, neighbors, coworkers, etc., who we love and respect? How do you expect us to patronize your island when you have such backwards and murderously bigoted views towards our loved ones? And YOU, of all people in the world, to look down on others on moral grounds? Aren’t 95% of your children born out of wedlock? Isn’t rape a casual everyday occurrence in your cities? How are you more moral than two men or two women who create a loving relationship together and, in many cases, raise children? I do not get you, but now don’t need to. Sadly, you are rotting in a hell of your own creation. The world has left you behind apparently.

    ATTENTION: To whom it may concern

    They say they know G-d but they do not. They say they know G-d but they lie. Write it down…the cruel and crazy Christian Zealots have failed to know about and understand of the REALITY OF G-D…the cruel and crazy Christian Zealots are bigots, prudes and hypocrites, and you can have the power to know it!

    I understand that in Jamaica…the attitudes had of persons in Jamaica are fierce. They kill homosexuals and lesbians in Jamaica, in this way the people in your country seem out of control. When the residents of Jamaica kill queers and lesbians; it would seem, to me, this the action of crazy or stupid people who are the residents of Jamaica.

    I realize that gay people and lesbians in Jamaica have a lot on their plate but I am writing this note, to you, because I think there exists a way possible to use in Jamaica so to be enabled to solve of your problems of the hatred of queers and lesbians, that the cruel hate should stop. I think there exists of a way possible to stop the killers and the spoilers and crazies who live in Jamaica. And the biblically related TEXT is the very source what you can use to stop, dead, in their tracks the doings of the killers and the spoilers stopped in the Jamaican Republique.

    Many of the persons in the Jamaican Republique are knowledgeable as related to the Biblically related Content. The Christian Community in the Jamaican Republique instructs from the Biblically Related philosophy, and they instruct only a part of the truth…”Be fruitful and multiply”. This principally is the message as taught in the Jamaican Republique by the Christian Zealots, but the Biblically related TEXT contains also another message what the Christian Zealots seem to have over looked what you can use to arm your-self armed against the cruel attacks and practices exercized of the Christian Zealots. With the the use of the knowledge contained in the Biblically related book of Genesis thirty two, with the use of this knowledge contained therein then you will be able to make of an sue of this knowledge alluded abut in Genesis chapter thirty two as related to the REALITY OF G-d what you will be able to use fro your experience used to disarm of the cruel attacks and injuries foisted upon you by the cruel and crazy in knowing Christian Zealots

    And I am writing, to you, to-day to point out to you of a way that you can make of an use of very content contained in the Biblically related TEXt used by yourseves so to be allowed to defend yourself defended from the cruel attacks made upon you by the cruel and crazy Christian Zealots, and you can do this of your own means of a defense when making of an use of ideological content contained in the very book as used by the Christian Zealots who act so cruelly and so inhumanly against you.

    In the Book of Genesis it instructs one as having to do with the very reality of G-d. You can read it for yourself. so that you will know with what tools what you can made of an use of so to be allowed to defend your-self against the prejudiced and cruel words and actions of the Christian Zealots who militate against you so un-fairly and cruelly.

    And Jacob wrestled wit the Angel till the break of Day. But the angel (Esau…Jacob’s brother) he wrestled wit was his brother, and the intimacies of the experience allowed of an sexual intimacy with his brother. And Jacob’s brother Esau demanded, in return, a blessing and Jacob blessed him there.

    After the sexual exchange with his brother, esau changed Jacob’s name changed t Israel. After the sexual interlude what occurred between Jacob and his brother Esau, then Esau changed Jacob’s name changed to Israel…it was a marriage what occurred between these fellows. in this way it is written in the Biblically related TEXT…Jacob said that he had seen God face to face and his life had been preserved. But the experience between Jacob and Esau was an experience wherein it was that Jacob had seen G-d face t face and his life was preserved but this experience what was Jacob’s and Esau’s was that experience of these two men what allowed the two men to realize of an essence and reality of g-d. and so the value of your experience.

    Of your intimacies experiences gained with one or more of the members of your same gender…you have discovered the REALITY OF G-D what your critiques remain in the realm of the unknowing and ignorance about.

    So when it is that the Christian Zealots punish and persecute you because of your experience with one or more of your male or female peers; knowing of the experience of Jacob and Esau as contained in the Biblically related TEXT recorded where it was that Jacob and Esau had of that mutuality of their experience having, both, realized of the reality of God having come out of that mutuality of their intimacies experience one with the other, in order to be allowed to dis-arm the Christian Zealots who come against you the result of your intimacies experience one with the other what you have had with one or more of of your male or female peers, in order to defend your self you will be armed sufficiently with the needed amount of the Biblically contained information so to be allowed to turn away the attacks of your enemies who have failed to know and understand of the reality of G-d what you have discovered the result of your having been intimate with one or more of your same sex peers…you will be able to make of an use of the Biblically related content of chapter thirty two contained of the Biblically related TEXT where Jacob and Esau experienced the knowledge and Reality of G-d having been intimate one with the other.

    That the Christian Zealots do not, in fact, know G-d, but the persons intimate one with the other of the same sex have, in fact discovered and do know the phenomenal and or physical reality of G-d. Most of the Christian Zealots who have read the scripture say they know and have met God, but the fact of the matter is that they have not so. The manly of the Christian Zealots say that they have met and do know G-d, but the fact of the matter is that they do not so, but the persons who have been intimate one with the other of the same sex have met and do know and understand God, and these are the persons who know and understand something as related to the REALITY OF G-D what the Christian Zealots do not know nor do they understand.

    And you, of your experiencer, can make of an use of this Biblically recorded bit of knowledge used by your-selves so to be allowed to defend yourselves defended from the onslaughts and cruel persecutions coming toward you from the cruel and vicious Christian Zealots who have read the Biblically related TEXT and have failed to know G-d.

    ATTENTION: To whom it may concern.

    Often times in my life I haver met men that I haver loved so very much and the erotique desire continued for a while, and I was un-able to explain to the fellow the nature of my sentiments nor could I allude, to him, of the substance of my need what was of my world of my desire of him!

    But the fear in the land does not diminish and persons in the America Republique are not free to explain and to love whom-so-ever it would be that they would desire to love?

    And I write this to you because there are some of the places in the world were persons similarly are afraid to express and of explain of the nature of their heart’s desire because the vampirism , the crime and the cannibalism predominates, in the land, so that persons are fearful of explaining and or alluding to another of the same sex that they love and require of an intimacy of a member of the same sex.

    But if the criminal advantage of person dis-allowed of their love if not stopped in the lands of the cannibals, then there be greater amounts of the un-happiness for certain, and persons in the lands of the cannibals do not know that their acts of cannibalism are wrong and that it is not the person of the same sex who is the culpable one for having loved another of the same sex…it is the person of the same sex who is fearful of saying to a member of the same sex as to the nature of their love of another, but it is the cannibal who is the crocodile what must needs be stopped of their wicked and un-godly habit of the eating of human flesh causing the fear in the land what must needs be recognized and stopped!

    Persons should be allowed, in freedom, to love of whom-so-ever it would be that it would be that they would be free to love when love is the law!

    MaryLee, thanks for not coming back and thanks for putting the word out to your gay friends and relatives to not visit either. It will be nice to see only straight people at the resort when I visit. Thanks again MaryLee and don’t forget not to visit for a fourth time take your girlfriend to Barbados they have a better attitude towards gays there.

    this is getting out of hand,no outside country or group can dictate to another country on how to run it, if that was the case, why do we still have all that fighting in the mother land, jamaica is what it is and we are who we are,what yo do in your house is your business,even texas has anti buggering laws on their books, so the group in spain, that wants to boycott us bring it, we will provail.we nah change

  26. I don’t know why administrators don’t just delete posts like William’s.

    This is a vexing issue on a lot of levels, but I can’t believe that people are passionate to the extent where they write a complete book for a blog post.

    Who cares what they do? Jamaica and Jamaicans were living our lives and ‘culture’ before they came on the scene.

    Love Jamaica or leave it.

    Our fore fathers fought the colonialists and their ‘dogs’ to give us a place in history and at this stage of the game we are not ready to turn our country over to foreigners or those who side with.

    That’s the way it will be in our democracy. “WE Na Change Fe no one.”
