ADVANCE FOR USE SUNDAY, FEB. 16, 2014, AND THEREAFTER - FILE - In this Feb. 6, 2013 photo, a Rastafarian named Bongho Jatusy smokes a pipe of marijuana outside a museum dedicated to the memory of late reggae icon Bob Marley in Kingston, Jamaica. While marijuana is still illegal in Jamaica, where it is known popularly as “ganja,” increasingly vocal advocates say that Jamaica could give its struggling economy a boost by taking advantage of the fact the island is nearly as famous for its marijuana as it is for beaches, reggae music and world-beating sprinters. Anxiety over U.S. reprisals has always doused reform efforts in Jamaica, including a broadly supported 2001 attempt to approve private use of marijuana by adults. (AP Photo/David McFadden, File)
