The Broadcasting Commission Jamaica have made a landmark move, banning all content promoting illegal activities being transmitted.
The Broadcasting Commission issued a directive to all broadcasters to immediately prevent the transmission of any recorded material on tv, radio, or cable that glorifies, promotes, or otherwise encourages illegal activities. The directive was announced on the 11th October 2022.
🚫DrugAbuse/illegal drugs including Molly.
🚫Illegal or harmful use of guns and other offensive weapons.
