Jamaica’s Science and Technology Minister Dr Andrew Wheatley is pushing for his country to “stake its claim” on the island’s unique marijuana strains for research and development. 

The comments came while Wheatley was addressing the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Jamaican-Canadian joint venture of the Jamaican Medical Cannabis Corporation (JMCC) and the National Foundation for the Development of Science and Technology on Monday.
 
The agreement between the two parties is set to undertake a project that will identify, isolate and conserve local strains of cannabis for medicinal use. JMCC has committed US$2 million in R&D funding over the next ten years and will use advanced biotechnological, botanical and agricultural methods to map the DNA of the different strains.
