The Los Angeles-based Botec Analysis Corp. has been retained by the government of Jamaica to consult on developing regulations for the country’s upcoming medical cannabis and industrial hemp industries.

The same marijuana consulting company was also hired by Washington State after voters approved recreational marijuana in 2012, to help the state develop its rules and regulations for the rec industry there.

For Jamaica, Botec will develop a report that will include recommendations on issues that range from licensing procedures to taxation and market sizing, according to Caribbean News Now.

The report’s compilation will take two months, and involve input from stakeholders at every level of the process, including business leaders, law enforcement, medical associations and consumers.

In February, Jamaica formally eased marijuana laws and created the Cannabis Licensing Authority, to oversee the new MMJ and industrial hemp industries, and which will supervise Botec’s work.
