11/29.- Black River tour, ganja plantation


This is a picture I took of a plantation by the river. Although its production and its consumption are forbidden in Jamaica, marihuana is still bringing some extra income to many Jamaicans. You do not see many Jamaicans smoking it, but it is not difficult to spot who smokes "ganja" --as locals call it. If you see a Jamaican with yellowish and pale eyes, most probably he is a heavy consumer. Do not ever share a joint with him, unless you are a heavy consumer yourself. Some Jamaicans smoke several joints a day. If you are not used to it, you will not stand the overdose. If you want to smoke some "ganja", do not ever do it in public. Smuggling marihuana is severely punished.
