Ganga Tea

Postby KarenS » Mon Jul 03, 2006 11:25 am

THERE ARE some things you know about Barbados and the Caribbean.

One is they possess some of the most scenic spots in the world.

Next, the islands are always looking for export markets for their exotic products, be it rum and condiments from Barbados, music from Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago, spices from Grenada, Antiguan pineapples or handicraft from the Dominican Republic.

Thirdly, there is the love of tea.

Some people sip afternoon tea and Test cricketers from Antigua, Grenada, Barbados, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and other islands stop at crucial points for a tea break, not to mention the refreshment cart with its juices and other drinks.

There is also the fact that the Caribbean produces some of the most potent ganja or marijuana. Possession of marijuana may be illegal in the Caribbean, Britain, Europe and North America but in Jamaica and St Vincent, for instance, the growing of cannabis fuels an underground economy and gives some farmers an excellent cash crop, now that a combination of the United States, Europe and the World Trade Organisation pressure has virtually killed the region's banana industry.

When those factors are combined, the mix explains why the region may find a good reason to welcome a new Swiss product called C-Ice.

C-Ice has a very critical ingredient ‚Äď cannabis, pot, ganja, marijuana, whatever you call it ‚Äď is being marketed as a product that offers health benefits.
