The government of Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller has proposed to amend the Caribbean island nation’s narcotics law to decriminalize possession of up to two ounces of marijuana — known here as ganja. The move, announced Thursday by Justice Minister Mark Golding, would mean possession of small amounts of the drug would lead to a fine. The government has also given approval for the possession and use of marijuana for religious, medical or research purposes.
