LESOTHO HAS BECOME THE FIRST AFRICAN COUNTRY TO LEGALIZE THE GROWING OF WEED FOR MEDICINAL PURPOSES.

LESOTHO HAS BECOME THE FIRST AFRICAN COUNTRY TO LEGALIZE THE GROWING OF WEED FOR MEDICINAL PURPOSES.

With this ruling, Lesotho finds itself at the forefront of an immensely profitable industry.

“Access to medicinal cannabis on the African continent has taken another major step forward today and Verve Dynamics is honoured to be the first company in Africa to have been granted regulatory approval to begin the process of growing and producing high quality cannabis extracts commercially,” says Richard Davies of Verve Dynamics in a statement. “The Government’s decision to move forward with this historic decision means that Lesotho will play a significant role in developing this industry, both locally and internationally, as well as establishing itself as a pioneer on the African continent with regards to state of the art extraction equipment.”

So, will other African countries take steps towards “legalizing it” as well? It appears that some are gradually doing so already, South Africa legalized the use of marijuana for personal use in the home back in April, though distribution and public uses are still illegal.

It seems that Verve Dynamics is ready just in case any other nations decide to follow in Lesotho’s footsteps. “We will make this equipment and services available to our partners in Africa on a toll basis as long as both the legal and regulatory approvals have been met,” says the company.

From what we can tell, the continent is about to get even more lit.
