Jamaica. In January, an emergency permit was introduced in the district of Saint James, where the city of Montego Bay is located. According to Countryaah.com, Kingston is the capital city of Jamaica, a country located in North America. The reason was the large number of murders committed in the area.

As countries such as Canada and several US states legalize cannabis, either for medical or personal use, Jamaica’s hopes for a lucrative export market are growing. Also in Jamaica, legislation in this area has been gradually liberalized and in February the company announced Timeless Herbal Care that it had implemented the country’s first legal cannabis harvest in over a hundred years. In 2018, more companies were allowed to grow cannabis for medical use. In October, Audley Shaw, Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, announced that Jamaica had sent the first cargo of cannabis oil to Canada.
Island of the Caribbean Sea, the third largest in the Greater Antilles. Discovered in 1494 by C. Colombo, who baptized it Santiago, it was then conquered by the British (1655) and developed a plantation economy (sugar cane) – based on the massive importation of African slaves – which after the abolition of trade of slaves and their subsequent emancipation (1834-38) entered into a profound crisis. After 1866, when Jamaica was declared a colony of the Crown, a phase of economic expansion began, stimulated above all by the development of the banana crop and by the intensification of commercial relations with the USA. The Thirties of the twentieth century were characterized by widespread social unrest and by a growth of the demands for independence (culminating in the achievement of independence within the Commonwealth, 1962); leader charismatics, A. Bustamante and N. Manley, formed the two poles represented by the Jamaica labor party (JLP) and the People’s national party (PNP), who took turns leading the country. The JLP, in power in 1980, made a pro-US change in foreign policy (breaking diplomatic relations with Cuba in 1981, participation in the invasion of Grenada in 1983), and launched a program of privatization and incentives for foreign investment; in the 1980s the world crisis hit the Jamaican economy hard, causing a drop in exports and a further worsening of the social situation. From 1989 the PNP returned to the leadership of the government, first with M. Manley and from 1992 with PJ Patterson, who implemented a moderate policy, adopting austerity measures agreed with the International Monetary Fund and seeking to obtain a more favorable attitude on the part of international creditors through the decisive support of Washington. Despite the development of the tourism sector, in the following years the high rate of inflation and unemployment, the economic difficulties and the dramatic deterioration in living conditions have fueled social tensions, which have resulted on several occasions in street clashes.

Golding became Prime Minister. the economic difficulties and the dramatic deterioration of living conditions have fueled social tensions, which have resulted on several occasions in street clashes.
