Yet Another Country Legalizes Cannabis for Medical Purposes

Zimbabwe have legalized cannabis cultivation for medical and scientific purposes becoming only the second country in Africa to make these legal changes.

The story was announced in the national newspaper, The Herald, which publishes official notices from the Zimbabwean government.

The article states that individuals can apply for licenses that are renewable every five years. This would grant them permission to possess, transport and sell cannabis flowers and extracts.

However, while the news, which was released at the end of last week, was met with immediate excitement by supporters of the cannabis industry, further news broke suggesting that access to the aforementioned licenses might extremely limited.

It was revealed that those individuals applying for licenses could have to pay upwards of $50,000 for the privilege. This effectively prices much of the general public in Zimbabwe out of contention.

It is thought that government funded organisations will instead use licenses for cultivation and possible distribution, although no words on distribution laws have been released yet.
