If you love to travel, or are just a fan of hardcore stoner culture, Jamaica is most likely a go-to destination on your bucket list. We are sure that just like us, you have heard all of the horror stories about buying weed in foreign countries.  You could be arrested or, even worse, be sold ditch weed because you’re a tourist and don’t know any better.  Well, thanks to Jamaica’s Cannabis Licensing Authority, you may be able to buy legitimate weed as soon as you step off the airplane.

According to High Times, these kiosks, that will be in airports, will dispense up to two ounces of legal weed to tourists landing in the country.  “It would primarily be for people who have a prescription and, in effect, you’re doing it for medicinal purposes with a permit from the Ministry of Health,” chairman Hyacinth Lightbourne told the Jamaica Gleaner.

But what if you don’t have a medical condition?  Don’t worry – you can still get your weed.  According to Lightbourne, “If they don’t have a prescription, then they can do what we call ‘self-declare,’ and this will allow them to have the two ounces while they are here.”

“The thought is that if you are coming out of the airport, there is a kiosk that you can go to,” he added. “So basically whoever is coming out of immigration can go to that desk and register and get that clearance.”

As if we needed another reason to go to Jamaica!
