raymond-pryceLawmakers in Jamaica gave the nod to Raymond Pryce's motion calling for the decriminalisation of ganja following two weeks of debate which saw members on the government side split on the issue. Despite sharp divisions among members of parliament on the issue, at the end of the debate, the motion was passed without dissent.
