April 2015 saw the decriminalization of cannabis in limited amounts. This was also the birth year of Epican Jamaica, a medical dispensary located in Kingston. Knowledge and experience assisted Epican to secure the first cultivation license in Jamaica. November 2017 saw the first license issued for retailing and processing cannabis.
