HIGH TIMES heads to Jamaica. Rastafari Rootzfest will host the HIGH TIMES 2015 Jamaican World Cannabis Cup in Negril from Nov. 12 through 15. Rastafari Rootzfest is a comprehensive, educational and experiential event that highlights Rastafari ideology, livity and culture, tells the story of the Rastafari struggle for the legalization of ganja and celebrates the decriminalization of ganja in Jamaica. Rastafari Rootzfest is the first ganja-exempt event since the Jamaican government legally recognized Rastafari Sacramental and Religious rights in the Dangerous Drugs (Amendment) Act earlier this year.

“It’s time to get up and stand up, stand up for what is right! Let’s get up and stand up, time we all unite!” said Rastafarian elder and event organizer Ras Iyah V of Rastafari In Inity Limited. “It is good that this government can recognize that I & I do have the right and are able to enjoy that right of herb as I & I Sacrament. Hail RasTafari!”

Earlier this year, the Jamaican Government amended its Dangerous Drugs Act to finally recognize Rastafarian religious and sacramental rights to use ganja and also decriminalized the possession of up to two ounces of marijuana for adults including tourists.

The event will be held in Long Bay Beach Park along the popular Seven Mile Beach in Negril. Persons under 18-years-old will not be permitted to enter the event. This is a strictly adult event. Tickets and travel packages are on sale at cannabiscup.com.

The HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup is the world’s leading marijuana trade show, celebrating the world of ganja through competitions, instructional seminars, expositions, celebrity appearances, concerts and product showcases. Hosted in states that have legalized medical and recreational marijuana, the Cannabis Cup stands as the foremost gathering place for the cannabis community to network and celebrate. Going strong for nearly three decades, HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cups are the most established and trusted in the marijuana industry, continually fighting for the political legitimacy of the plant.
