Jamaica: Regulations Amended to Permit Online Medical Cannabis Sales

Kingston, Jamaica: Federal officials have relaxed rules so that qualified patients can purchase medical cannabis products online from licensed retailers.

The new rules, prepared in consultation with the Ministry of Health and approved by Jamaica’s Cannabis Licensing Authority, allow dispensaries to offer online sales and curbside pick-up. The updated rules seek to facilitate the continued operation of medical cannabis establishments during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the United states, dozens of jurisdictions have enacted similar steps in recent months to facilitate uninterrupted retail cannabis access while also encouraging physical distancing.

Additional information on state-specific guidelines for retail cannabis operations during the COVID-19 pandemic are available from NORML.
