CanEx Jamaica continued their series on Cannabis Investment at the Hyatt Regency hotel on Thursday.
The event brought together accredited investors, bankers, lawyers, policymakers and healthcare professionals to offer an overview of the legal cannabis industry and specifically to speak on investment opportunities.
Cannabis Decriminalization and Legalization Advocate, Dr. Anthony Pottinger, noted that previous legislation prevented trial research on the use of marijuana. He’s hoping the policy changes, saying it will highlight the health and economic benefits of the plant.
Director of the Caribbean Cannabis Institute, Marcus Ramkissoon, called for proper regulations to be put in place to ensure economic viability.
