Is psilocybin legal in Jamaica?

Jamaica is one of the only countries in the world where psilocybin is legal — it’s not just decriminalized, it’s truly legal. Psilocybin was never included in the country’s drug enforcement laws as it was never particularly popular.

In 2021 the Jamaican Minister of Agriculture Floyd Green, said that the government put interim protocols in place to facilitate the cultivation and processing of magic mushrooms. He went on to say that “we have no regulations [concerning] growing psilocybin mushrooms. In Jamaica, the reality is that we never promulgated any laws to make psilocybin illegal.”

As of 2023, the current government sees psychedelics as an economic opportunity it actively courting investment associated with psychedelic wellness.
