Push to legalise cannabis in Jamaica

As more US states legalise the drug it seems Kingston may follow the trend to bolster its economy.

    Jamaica is the largest producer of cannabis in the Caribbean.

    Despite its illegal status, many Rastafari believe the drug is a religious right. 

    And as more states within the US legalise cannabis, many say it is only a matter of time before this economically struggling nation follows suit.

    Al Jazeera's Rachel Levin reports from Kingston.
