    Legalized what God Almighty has created for mankind to use
    God created the Herb to be used
    Stop playing God
    The legal status of cannabis is changing rapidly.
    many countries have decriminalized the possession of small quantities of cannabis.

    As of 2018, some of the countries with the laxest cannabis laws were Australia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Czech Republic, India, Israel, Jamaica, Mexico, the Netherlands, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Uruguay, and some U.S. jurisdictions. Some of the countries with the strictest cannabis laws were Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, France, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, and the United Arab Emirates.

    Never knew of a district in BIm call GINGER WORKS, got to go and talk to Mark Williams on this one.
    Another interesting name is a Round-a-bout over in JACKSON St. Michael call “STEEL DONKEY ROUND-A-BOUT”.
    Fellas, you all just put the district on the map…….as the saying goes.

    Ras the issue is not as simple as that. Drug barons are in it to make money. If marijuana is made legal and supply outstrips demand because a lot more persons begin to sell it, the barons will go into more cocaine, heroin and other drugs to ensure large profits. Imagine the devastation on Barbadian families that will result. Marijuana should be only be allowed for medicinal purposes.

    From an agroculturalist stand point Ginger Works and surrounding locations are perfect rain forest zones which enhance the natural cannabis plant growth. This type of climate produce perfect medical unhybred cannabis plants by nature.
