If Jamaica legalizes marijuana it could create jobs for people there. It could also make selling and purchasing it a safer more regulated process. The public could be more educated about risks for using the drug and more research can be done about it there. Plus, I'm sure the government can find a way to profit as well.
Public support for the legalization of marijuana is growing, and the stigma with being a country where it is legal is growing smaller. If nothing else legalizing marijuana for tourists is sure to boost the tourism industry in Jamaica, much like it did for Amsterdam. Taxes and other revenue are sure to increase as well.
Many people have been flocking to Colorado to enjoy recreational marijuana since the state decriminalized the drug.

Yes, it should be legal for tourists because it's legal for residents. If the residents of the island can use marijuana, people visiting the island should be able to use it legally.
