GREAT HARBOUR, Jost van Dyke, VI – Jamaican reggae artiste Jepther McClymon aka ‘Luciano’ will be arriving in the Virgin Islands (VI) on Thursday, July 18, 2019, via the Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport on Beef Island ahead of his scheduled performance for the 2019 edition of Foxy’s HempFest.

The reggae star is expected to make an appearance at the Caribbean Cellars Warehouse in Long Bush, Tortola, on Friday at 1:00 pm in support of Saturday’s HempFest at Jost van Dyke.

Packed Itinerary 

According to a press release from the event organisers, shortly after his appearance in Long Bush, ‘Luciano’ will also be stopping by at Mellow Moods Café on Fleming Street in Road Town, Tortola.

“The kids at YEP in Parham Town will be excited to know that Luciano will be stopping by there at three pm to talk with them about the positive aspects of being a musician, and then he will visit with the Rastafari Association at PlantWise, on Great Mountain,” the release further notes.

For the 2019 edition of the HempFest, the day will feature a Vendor’s Market and Fashion Show, with the evening musical lineup championed by artists like JahLand, MP3, IllMindz and Ritical, with Luciano headlining.

Conversations on Cannabis 

Keynote Speakers will include Virgin Islands (VI) legislator, Hon. Natalio D. Wheatley (R7) and Senator Positive T.A. Nelson from St Croix, US Virgin Islands (USVI), both aiming to sensitise the public on the benefits of Cannabis to the VI economy.   

Ferries will be running from West End, and will be leaving that port at 7:00 and 9:00 pm respectively and returning to Tortola at Midnight and 1:00 am. The cost of the roundtrip for the ferry is set at $30.

    hemp aint illegal. I use the soap, shampoo, bodywash, lotion. found the hemp beverage at Nature's way (good replacement for dairy milk). The one thing that help me for years with a medical condition without side effects is ganga tea. Can only get it when I go ah yard. Me no smoke it duh, but when me bredrin steep ah couple leaves inna me cup for mi ailment, ah tell you say, me just get almost reverse. Cant travel with it and it illegal where I live so me back on the prescription muck that ah break out me skin. I guess if the world had the power they would arrest God for creating the marijuana plant. My bible say that the trees are for the healing of the nation, not the lab.

    Free the marijuana tree. It not everybody want get high. A lot ah us only want relief for the pain and sickness dem
