Officials in Jamaica, have announced that the government will set up marijuana dispensaries at airports and seaports across the country.

The government will install kiosks that will dispense marijuana to tourists in order to bring more revenue.

The New Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA) said that the kiosks will be installed in two months after possession of small amounts of marijuana were legalized.

The dispensaries will be located at airports and seaports, and will be operated by a person with medical training.

That staff member would give tourists who have a prescription for medical marijuana from abroad, a license to use or carry up to two ounces of marijuana.

Lawmakers have legalized growing five or fewer marijuana plants per household.
