Adonijah: All ganja medicinal


Share post:

THE ICHIROUGANAIM COUNCIL for the Advancement of Rastafari (ICAR) does not want Rastafarians’ years of cultivation of the cannabis plant to go up in smoke.

Spokesperson for the council, Adonijah, made this point yesterday as he labelled Government’s Medical Cannabis Industry Bill 2019 as inaccurate.

He was speaking during the afternoon session of the second meeting of the Joint Select Committee of Parliament at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.

“The title of the bill is a gross misnomer. There is no such thing as medicinal cannabis and non-medicinal cannabis. There is cannabis which in and of itself is medicinal, as has been noted since 500 years before Christ,” Adonijah said. (TG)
