    Jamaica proposes marijuana dispensers at airports for tourists, marijuana availability should be considered a tourist attraction. Since marijuana is part of the culture in Jamaica it does not seem out of place. However legalizing the sale of marijuana with the intention of earning from the tax seems quite unethical, because marijuana when misused is harmful and a dangerous drug.

  • Morality aside, such availability will attract certain tourists.

    Whether or not the availability of marijuana should be advertised as a tourist attraction, the presence of such availability will, in fact, attract certain groups of people. People who enjoy marijuana might choose to visit Jamaica over a similar vacation spot because they will be able to buy marijuana there. Thus they can have it without attempting to carry it with them to their destination, risking arrest and/or imprisonment. People who cannot get marijuana where they live might choose to visit Jamaica to have the chance to try it without fear of imprisonment. It is very likely that this availability will prove to be monetarily beneficial to Jamaica. Income will likely be realized not only from the sales of marijuana itself, but in the attendant revenues from these tourists during their stays.
