Morocco’s government council today has postponed the discussion on the details of its planned bill to legalize the production of medicinal and therapeutic cannabis
Morocco’s government decided to temporarily postpone discussion of the country’s cannabis legalization plans.
Mar 4, 2021
The bill aims to permit the legal production of cannabis for medicinal and therapeutic use, to be produced in Morocco’s traditional cannabis-growing region.
The bill, initially developed by Morocco’s Ministry of the Interior, was briefly discussed by the cabinet today. Morocco’s government decided to temporarily postpone discussion of the country’s cannabis legalization plans.
A broad overview of the government’s plans has been available to the public ever since the government announced it would discuss the previously taboo topic.
Morocco’s efforts to partially legalize its famous cannabis industry have happened both suddenly and rapidly. The government announced it would approve the plan mere days after it first announced it would discuss the emirates of the “legal use of cannabis,” early last week.
The bill aims to lift many cannabis farmers from Morocco’s northern regions out of poverty and illegality by allowing the cultivation of the cash crop exclusively in this region.
Which areas the government will designate for cultivation has not been determined as of yet.
Today, Morocco took another important step towards the goal of legalizing the production of cannabis for medicinal purposes.
