QUESTION about Weed In Jamaica
My wife and I live in California and will be in Nagril in June. We are there to celebrate 25 yrs or marriage! We are adults who smoke now and would like to be able to enjoy ourselves also on vacation.
We do not plan on smoking in public and understand the laws. My question is how difficult is it to get weed in Negril and what should i be looking out for? What to ask for etc...price. I appreciate your help. thank you TK

Very interesting question but thanks for asking.
I am sure many others have the same question.
I am going to take this opportunity to share an entire article from the Jamaica Travel Forum with you - and indeed all the others who have general questions about marijuana (Ganja) use in Jamaica.
Here is it!
Good luck in this and all the best on your trip here Tom.
Be sure you get a copy of The Jamaica Travel Guide to help around Tom.
Note: By the way, this Q&A will also be posted on our popular facebook fan page so I am inviting you to follow the responses over there as well.

Smoking weed in Jamica
Just got back from Jamica last night. Personally, I would wait until you get to your destination before you make your purchase. Fresh off the plane you're a target for getting scammed, low quality and quantity for your dollar. Know the exchange rate, 1 US dollar equals 127.6 JMD.
Trust me, Jamicans know it very well! Once at the resort walk around for a few, it took me about 3 minutes. I walked up to a guy who was near the towel stand and showed him cash. 5 minuites he brought it to me, 1/4 oz for 20 USD. I scored three more times during my stay. Prices vary, for me, 20 dollars for some gummy organic smoke delivered anytime day or night is a fair price! Quit stressing, use common sense.

This is so darn funny to read. As a boy in Jamaica, I often saw guys smoking Ganja on the roadside. I am now 78 years old so do the math. I never smoked and neither did my friends as smoking Ganja was not a part of what our lives were about. It was perhaps what others did but not my peer group. Now as an adult male, I really believe the stuff should be legalized.

Apparently you did not visit Jamaica
First, weed is everywhere. Everywhere you look someone has one hanging out their mouth. Its not illegal if you are a Rasta man due to its part of their religion.
Second if caught its less than a five dollar fine for the rest of us, locals and tourist. From talking to the locals, no one ever knew of anyone ever getting a ticket. Weed keeps everyone happy and if everyone is happy, why would the police want to mess with the peace. No one is harming anyone due to easy going. By the way it is safe as long as using common sense, its taboo for a local to harm a tourist due to that's income.
The other locals will turn them in and ban them from the community, per locals. I've spent five weeks over the past two summers and smoked everywhere and anytime. The road blocks are only set up for inspection of vehicles licenses and registration, etc.
They could care less if you are smoking a joint. And where the hell on this island did you get up to sixty miles an hour. I think once for a moment we topped out at forty five. The roads and traffic and conditions do not allow someone to drive that fast with out having a wreck very quickly. Don't forget the autos are in KM per hour, not Mile per hour, so the reading of the dash may say sixty but you are going much, much slower, dumbass.
From what I read of your article, you never have been to the island. I am here to say don't listen to this blow hole. It's one of the most beautiful places on the earth, wonderful culture, and you can smoke your weed at anytime with out fear.
They don't want to lose the little tourism they have, that's their money being brought in. Act right and responsible, have fun and smoke it if you got it. Hope this help correct the misleading article from above. I love Jamaica, I want to move and live out my retirement life there.

Smoking weed in jamaica
To answer your qyestion, it is EXTREMELY easy to find weed in jamaica.
I was offered it right outside the airport, at my resort and any time I went out shopping.
It's extremely prevalent and u don't even have to look... it will find YOU! I'm from Florida and a "paranoid" smoker... always being cautious.
Here, you can smoke it at your resort! (On the beach, in smoking areas, etc) it is so laid back when it comes to pot.
I wouldn't smoke it walking down the street, but I smoked on 2 of my excursions, lol. I'm staying at the jewel in ocho rios and if you go on the dunn falls river tour, you will find it there too.
I went off roading on an atv tour yesterday and the guides brought it and shared it. It IS legal supposedly to possess up to 1 ounce. (I wouldn't smoke on the steet tho just to be sure) if u are a weed smoker, Jamaica is perfect for u!

My friend and I did the Bob bus. It was really something. We had ganja and made the mistake of try to take it out. For some reason the police let us go. Now I'll never go through that scare again
