His leadership and advocacy, which have cut across Jamaica ’s renowned partisan lines, have resulted in the Jamaican government’s move to reform antiquated and repressive anti-cannabis laws. This resulted in Decriminalization legislation being passed in Parliament and the establishment of a system permitting medical, therapeutic and scientific use of cannabis.
