They say where there’s smoke there’s fire! Epican (Epic Cannabis), the first seed-to-sale cannabis retail store proved that when it opened its doors at Marketplace in Kingston last Saturday, blazing a trail for over 300 curious cannabis enthusiasts in attendance. Doctors were on site offering free medicals, qualifying guests for their medical marijuana cards. EPICAN is the first company to be granted a license to cultivate and then subsequently receive licenses to process and retail medical grade ganja by the CLA (Cannabis Licensing Authority) in Jamaica. The operators of EPICAN have spent three years educating local farmers in methods that meet international growing standards. Watch the video for more on the official opening of the new cannabis cafe in Kingston. In addition to EPICAN’s 43,000-square foot vertically integrated cultivation facility, they also have a 5,000-square foot, state-of-the-art extraction plant that is able to process and support its own organic cultivation output. The facility focuses solely on cannabinoid and terpene extraction, identification and formulation for medical purposes within our Jamaican market. This ensures that EPICAN can continue to turn out a consistent product that is of the highest quality, potency and purity. “It’s not about getting high,” says Dwayne McKenzie, President of EPICAN, “In Jamaica, cannabis will be produced by licensed producers and distributed to aid persons - It’s about the therapeutic proponents of the cannabis plant ” Marijuana’s healing properties are attributed to its high cannabidiol (CBD) content and critical levels of medical terpenes and flavonoids. EPICAN intends to deliver these healing properties in the form of topical treatments, oils and raw strains of the plant itself, all for sale now at their Marketplace location. EPICAN currently employs over 50 local farmers at its growing facility in the Blue Mountains. For the latestnews, download our app at Android; and at IoS.

The Port Authority of Jamaica (PAJ) has continued its thrust to automate operations with the roll-out of the Import Phase of the Port Community System (PCS) for the Kingston Maritime Port Community. So far, over 300 companies have participated in PCS-related training sessions and benefitted from the resulting optimizationofseveral shipping processes, since the launch of the PCS in July, 2016. The announcement was made at a recent breakfast meetingwith select shipping stakeholdershosted by the PAJ at its Kingston offices. Professor Gordon Shirley, Presidentand CEO of the PAJ said: “In recent times, the Jamaican Port Community has been undergoing numerous changes focused on processes and ICT with Asycuda World, as well as the PCS. In addition, there have been infrastructural upgrades, such as the recent completion of the dredging of the Kingston Harbour and the massive capital investments being undertaken by Kingston Freeport Terminal Limited (KFTL) and Kingston Wharves Limited (KWL). These projects are complementary and are geared towards positioning Jamaica to compete globally among the leading logistics countries.” In the Import Phase, the PCS will managethe submission of Less-Than-Container-Load (LCL) manifests to the Jamaica Customs Agency (JCA), as well as the authorisations fromcustoms (Customs Release), shipping agents and freight forwarders (Electronic Delivery Order), container terminals (Terminal Authorization) and customs brokers/freight-forwarders (Trucker Identification). Instead of checking the required physical documents, as was the case prior to the electronic system, the terminals’ gate staff will now check their electronic equivalent, madethrough the PCS computerised system,beforeallowing cargo to leavethe port. Oncepayments have been made to the relevant parties and all releases are in place, thePCS then createsa PCS Gate-Out Authorization (PCS GOAU) notification. This is sent to various stakeholders,such as truckers, customs brokers/freight-forwarders and terminals, to advisethat the respective cargo is now be authorized to be collected. The Port Community System is a secure electronic platform accessible to private and public stakeholders in the port community. For the past two years,visitsby all cargo vessels to Jamaica have been reported by shipping agents to the JCA through the PCS. This has resulted in a decreased turnaround time for the completion of transhipment bills from 30 minutes to an average of 5 minutes, while also facilitating 24-hour business transactions. Users of the PCS are pleased about the single data-entry platform, as it also allows for the submission of shipping manifests and other key documentsto one site, which automatically distributes them to key parties in the logistics chain. Deputy General Manager from Carib Star Shipping Limited (representatives for ZIM Shipping Line in Jamaica), Kisha Williams-Hare stated that: “The Port Community System has significantly improved our Transhipment Shipping Bill (TSB) process, transforming what was a very manual process to an automated paperless platform. We look forward to the continued improvement within the shipping community”. Mitzie W. Gordon Burke-Green, President of the Customs Brokers and Freight Forwarders Association of Jamaica (CBFFAJ) noted that: “The CBFFAJ looks forward to the benefits of the Port Community System upon full implementation. We are appreciative of the high level of consultation and training embarked on by the PCS team. We are especially heartened by the level of consultation to ensure that all the concerns of the industry are addressed before implementation.” Ultimately in the short term, the vision of the PCS operator is that there will be complete elimination of physical documents needed to clear cargo.Some of these physical documents are, however, contractual documents between private stakeholders, therefore the PCS Operator will continue to work with the Industry to ensure this is a seamless process. The Port Community System allows for a simpler, standardised means of doing business across the industry as it reduces the costs associated with physical document movement and submission, information access and other general communication processes, while increasing efficiency through improved business processes for all port community stakeholders.

Vanessa Bling, aka Gaza Slim (PHOTO: Instagram)

The Vybz Kartel appeal entered a new interesting chapter with the introduction of an alleged "defence red herring" regarding a 2011 police report made by artiste Vanessa Bling (also known as Gaza Slim) - that she had been robbed by the deceased, Clive Williams, after the date of his death. "The judgeintroduced an alleged red herring that the deceased was robbed after the date of death. Gaza Slim has been illegally squeezed into the case through a back door crevice," attorney at law Bert Samuels told Loop News reporter Claude Mills a short time ago. Years ago, the prosecution had alleged that Vanessa Bling,real name Vanessa Saddler, and Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, conspired to falsify evidence in relation to the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams, who was allegedly bludgeoned to death by a group of men including Kartel at a house in Havendale, St Andrew. His body has not yet been found. Saddler had been charged in 2011 when she reported to the Constant Spring Police that she had been robbed by Williams after Kartel was arrested for his murder. In September 2014, the charges against Bling and her co-accused, deejay Vybz Kartel, were dropped in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court in Half-Way-Tree. The charges were dropped on the grounds that Kartel’s murder conviction and sentence, which is tied to the case, was being appealed. Now it seems that Vanessa Bling will once again be pulled into the tangled web of the Vybz Kartel murder drama. The Vybz Kartel appeal has been heating up since its resumption on Monday. [related node_id='5f2afa9e-84f3-41a8-9329-02c106a1a10b'] Bianca Samuels, one of the attorneys for Shawn "Shawn Storm" Campbell, on Mondaydropped a bombshell claiming that the text message reportedly found on one of the mobile phones taken from Vybz Kartel which seemed to suggest that Williams was "chop up fine, fine" was created six weeks before the victim's death. Samuels had been making her submissions in the murder appeal filed by the two entertainers against their conviction and prison sentence. She said evidence presented during their 17-week murder trial, which ended in April 2014, showed that the metadata was created on July 6, 2011, six weeks before prosecutors claim Williams was killed. On Tuesday, Samuels, who is representing Campbell, urged the three judges hearing the Vybz Kartel appeal to set aside the convictions and life sentences. Samuels believes the case is rife with multiple deficiencies, and that "these defects are incurable." "Any attempt to cure them for retrial purposes would be to give the prosecution a second bite at an infected cherry," Samuels said. Vybz Kartel, Shawn "Shawn Storm" Campbell, Kahira Jones and Andre StJohn were convicted in March 2014 for the murder of Clive "Lizard" Williams.

England's Joe Root (left) and Eoin Morgan in action against India.

Joe Root scored an unbeaten hundred for the second successive matchasEngland clinchedtheone-day series against India in style at Headingley, cruising to anemphatic eight-wicket win in the decider on Tuesday. Yorkshireman Root followed up his unbeaten 113 at Lord's on Saturday with 100 not out at his home ground, helping England easepast the touring side'stotal of 256-8 with 33 deliveries to spare. The right-hander clubbeda full toss from Hardik Pandya to the mid-wicket boundary to not only clinch victory but also reach his 13th ODI century, the most by an Englishman in the 50-over format at international level. Root - who will lead his countryin the upcoming five-match Test series against the same opponents -combined with limited-overscaptain Eoin Morgan in an unbrokenthird-wicketstand worth 186. India's varied attack simply had no answer to the pair, though in truth they always looked short of runs after Adil Rashid (3-49) had undermined their efforts with the bat. Virat Kohli top-scored with 71 but an innings that failed to get out of the blocks then faltered badly in the middle against England's slow bowlers. They lost Rohit Sharma early in a powerplay that yielded just 32 runs, while the run out of Shikhar Dhawan (44) - caught short by a direct hit from Ben Stokes - needlessly brought a premature end toa promising second-wicket partnership. Still, the visitors hadreached 125-2 before Rashid turned the game decisively in England's favour. The leg-spinner benefited from an inside edge to dismissDinesh Karthik (21) before removing bothKohli - bowled for 71 by a deliverythat spun sharply away from India's skipper, beating his bat to hit off stump - and Suresh Raina (1) in the same over. Helped by Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who both contributed 21, MS Dhoni studiously repaired the mid-innings damage, making a patient 42 from 66deliveries, but they always looked to havea below-par total. Jonny Bairstow made a breezy 30 at the start of the reply, while James Vince - drafted into the XI to replace the injured Jason Roy - wasted an opportunity to impress when he was run out for 27. However, his dismissalsimply allowed Morgan to join forces with Root, the duo makingserene progress in the Leeds sunshine as England, beaten comfortably in the opening game at Trent Bridge, had the last word in the battle betweenthe top two in the ODI rankings.
