President of the People’s National Party (PNP) Mark Golding says a government led by him will empower and include small farmers in the ganja industry.

Golding told party supporters this afternoon that a PNP government will legislate to create a comprehensive, lawful ganja-based economy for the Rastafari community and the Maroons. 

He said the time had come for the country to move beyond the decriminalisation of ganja, which he championed when the PNP was in Government.

In his address at the 84th annual conference of the PNP at the National Arena in St Andrew, Golding said that small farmers played a pivotal role in building and protecting the knowledge system around ganja locally.
