Is ganja (marijuana) legal?
No! And the police are not very forgiving. You don't want to end up in a Jamaican jail. And don't even think of exporting any. Jamaica is not California or Massachusetts, yet.

There are three or four physicians practicing in Negril. There is an EMS Ambulance Service with trained medical technicians for transport to the nearest hospital in Savanna- la-Mar or to Montego Bay.
Is the water safe to drink?
The tap water in Negril comes from a natural spring in nearby Logwood, in Hanover. It is completely safe to drink. The Jamaicans take pride in their high quality public water system.
Are the public beaches clothing optional also?
For women, topless is common along the Seven Mile Beach. Total nudity appears to be restricted to a cove north of the main beach called Bloody Bay, and to the private beaches associated with the 'all inclusives'.
What does Llantrissant mean? Is it French or something?
Llantrissant is a Welsh place name, in fact, the town where the Royal Mint is located. It was so named by a former owner whose origins may have been Welsh. Etymologically it means "a yard where lovers meet": llan means yard and trissant is derived from "tristre" which means "a secret meeting place in trust" from which the English word "tryst" is derived. According to the history of the town, the name also means the Church of Three Saints.
