The popular Reggae Rastafarian music festival, Rebel Salute, has been granted an exemption under the Ganja Decriminalization Act to allow patrons to use and possess ganja.
Rebel Salute will be held on January 15 and 16 next year. It was launched last evening.
Justice Minister Mark Golding speaking with Nationwide News said all patrons will be exempt as long as they follow the conditions set out by the law.
Minister Golding said this is the second exemption reviewed by an advisory committee since the law was passed.
The Justice Minister said a protocol has been established that the police are working with.
