WESTMORELAND, Jamaica — Police say Rastafarian Rootz Fest, the first ganja event to be sanctioned by the Government since the amendment of the Dangerous Drugs Act, was incident-free.
The event was held in Negril, Westmoreland last week.
"We have received no reports of any incidents. Based on our assessments, the event was organised," said Assistant Superintendent of Police Adrian Hamilton, a senior member of the Westmoreland Police Division.
"It was an event that saw local and international organisers working together in a professional manner," the police told OBSERVER ONLINE.
The event was held in association with High Times Magazine, promoters of the Cannabis Cup, regarded as the world's best-known showcase for ganja.
First held in 1988, the Cannabis Cup has musical, educational, and commercial components.
